Two Year Collective Efficacy Program

Teams from schools and/or school districts enroll in a two year program focused on fostering collective efficacy in schools. In joining this network, school improvement teams will learn about the power of collective efficacy in overcoming the challenges and obstacles faced in schools today. Participants will examine how educators’ beliefs affect thought patterns in ways that either support or hinder quality implementation. Participants will collaboratively work toward fostering greater efficacy in schools so that the promise of improvement-oriented interventions become realized in practice.

Institutes and Workshops


We will partner with your organization in offering cost-affordable and customized 1-4 day institutes and/or webinars in which your professional learning communities (PLCs) can not only learn about literacy topics aligned to your goals but also apply what they are learning to their own context. The content is designed to move you toward excellence in literacy instruction and leadership at all levels in your organization (e.g. system leaders, school leaders, and/or classroom educators).

Some of our most popular workshops include:

  • Best Practices in Reading Instruction
  • Designing and Implementing a Workshop Approach
  • Creating Aligned Mini-Lessons
  • Powerful Guided Reading Groups
  • From Assessment to Instruction: Using Student Data to Drive Literacy Instruction
  • Phonics and Word Study: Foundations for Success
  • Conferring with Confidence
  • Literacy Workshop: Every Minute Matters
  • Teaching in a Readers Workshop
  • Teaching in a Writers Workshop
  • Interdisciplinary Literacy
  • Designing to the Edges: Universal Design for Learning

Teams will examine enabling conditions within their context and embark on a plan to strengthen conditions that help to foster a sense of efficacy amongst teams. Participants will be introduced to different ways to determine collective teacher efficacy and be assisted in monitoring progress toward their goals. A key element of this program’s success is that it helps to build capacity through an inquiry-based model in which complex contextual factors (that often impede change) are effectively considered and addressed.

Pricing: $1,750.00 per person

EDUTAS at the University of Oklahoma, in collaboration with the Oklahoma State Department of Education, engaged Dr. Jenni Donohoo as our primary consultant for a group of 30 public school assistant and early career principals participating in our Moving UP initiative this school year. The Moving UP goal is to develop the knowledge, skills, and competencies of school leaders to successfully lead and manage school improvement efforts (change) through collaborative leadership and collective efficacy structures. Jenni’s work is both challenging and engaging, giving participants the opportunity to learn and apply research-based practices in their own context to solve specific issues. Participants share issues and evidence of change during the face-to-face sessions with Jenni, with their executive coaches, and via an online community of practice. We’re very fortunate to have Jenni in Oklahoma and look forward to the practical, high-impact content and reflection she brings in year 2. Jenni is model collaborative leader who works diligently to build our collective efficacy.
