Instructional Coaches and Assistant Principals of Instruction! 


Tentative Schedule:

Day 1: General Session Presenter:  Joellen Killion

Joellen Killion is a senior advisor to Learning Forward and served for many years as the association’s deputy executive director. As senior advisor, she leads initiatives related to the link between professional development and student learning. She works with coaches, principals, district and state leaders to support understanding and embedding standards-based professional learning in a system.

Day 2: General Session Presenter: Myron Dueck

Over the past 22 years, Myron has worked as an educator in both Canada and New Zealand in subjects ranging from grades 4 to 12.  In 2006 Myron began to develop a number of grading, assessment and reporting systems which gave students a greater opportunity to show what they understand and play a significant role in the reporting of their learning.  Myron has also been a part of district groups, school committees and governmental bodies that have further broadened his access to innovative ideas. Through sharing his stories, tools and first-hand experiences with public, charter and international school educators around the world, Myron’s presentations have diverged to include global education trends and broader socio-economic realities that impact learning. Myron has twice been published in EL Magazine. His best-selling book, Grading Smarter, Not Harder– Assessment Strategies that Motivate Kids and Help Them Learn was released by ASCD in July 2014. In 2015 ASCD released a video project based on his own school district entitled ‘Smarter Assessment in the Secondary Classroom’. His most recent project, ‘Ask Them’, is a three-part streaming series available at Myron and his family currently live in British Columbia where he is SD67 District Vice-Principal for Communicating Student Learning.
