Join us to answer the question “How Do We Create Equitable Student-Driven Career Pathway Systems in Public Schools?” NHLI is virtually convening NH stakeholders (K-12 educators, post-secondary educators, business owners, and community members) for a day, with the goal of creating a common definition for career pathway development and mapping out solutions that work for NH public schools. In between the collaborative brainstorming, four national experts will provide insight on this work.

This workshop is open to district, building and teacher leaders. These 3-hour virtual sessions will focus on the critical structures, processes and mindsets needed to support a shift to a CBL system. Sessions address (1) How Do I Lead the Work? (2) Shifting to a CBL System, Where Do We Start? (3) How Did We Do and Where Do We Go from Here? Members of the NHASP receive a discount.  The series begins again on February 10.  Click Here to view the dates and the program flyer.

OGAP is an evidence-based formative assessment system that includes professional development, resources, and routines for teachers and leaders to continually adjust instruction to meet the diverse needs of students in grades K-8 mathematics. Four, consecutive, in-person, full days equip teachers with the knowledge and instructional practices to bring to their classrooms. Three follow-up virtual sessions during the school year to review student work and discuss the mathematics progressions, reinforcing their learning.

Teachers in a variety of roles and content areas want skills that build a foundation for leading and supporting innovative practices in their schools. This five Saturday session will present the skills to assist a district in moving forward in its competency-based education and equity goals. A stipend is available to full participants in the program. Email NHLI if you wish to enroll yourself or any of your teachers in this program.

This program provides educators with the opportunity to learn about and practice formative assessment. The outcomes of this program include: Understand the process of formative assessment as a feedback loop; Understand the classroom conditions that support formative assessment; and Develop skills to implement subject-matter formative assessment effectively. There are four, 3-hour virtual sessions, four online learning modules done independently, and interim Zoom calls with coaches for support.

Work Study Practices are four critical competencies students need for success in their career, college and life: Communication, Collaboration, Creativity, and Self-direction. This program integrates these critical competencies into curriculum and instruction, allowing students to build the metacognitive practices necessary for success in whatever pathway they choose. NHLI is offering the opportunity to engage in WSP through a virtual, online course. NHLI would be available for support when needed, providing feedback and guidance throughout.

The POL is a collaborative process to define a vision (a north star) for student success after High School by identifying competencies valued by the entire community. Partners in this process include representatives from the district, the school(s), family, business and industry, and community members. NHLI believes this process needs to be developed over time and cannot begin in high school but is part of system thinking K-12. And that using data from all constituencies informs the process and keeps the Portrait sustainable. NHLI will conduct and guide the POL process from data gathering, to portrait development, to community reveal. Contact NHLI if you are interested in developing or enhancing a POL.

This program offers an opportunity to engage in formative assessment training with Dr. Margaret Heritage, an expert in formative assessment. Understanding the process of formative assessment as a feedback loop; Understanding the classroom conditions that support formative assessment; and Developing skills to implement subject-matter formative assessment effectively. This will be a blended learning experience including three workshops in person, five online learning modules, and three check-in/support calls.

Take this course to learn about student deeper learning. Teachers new to CBL will receive a primer of what it really means to have a competency-based learning mindset. The workshop will provide an introduction to the shifts in practice needed to be made and ideas they need to understand to be successful.

Research and practice have shown that competency-based teaching and learning works well for students who learn differently, leading to lower anxiety and higher achievement. The goal of this workshop series is to provide resources and strategies to help teachers and leaders support all learners in a competency-based system. This program has eight, half-day sessions that can be in person or remote.

The NHLI conference this summer was so worthwhile! I found so many connections between presenters, but also, with what we’ve been learning about in our PD. I am excited to jump back into the CBL work in my district and look forward to bringing many of the resources I gathered from these expert presenters. So much of it is relevant to my work in the district.
