"Leading in a Collaborative World"
Never has collaboration been more important in schools. Common Core State Standards, literacy coaching, professional learning communities, co-teaching, mentoring, tweets, wikis, Google Docs, literature circles, and other initiatives and resources have the potential to bring together educators and students across the world. While these opportunities for collaboration are exciting, they also can present challenges.
If you are wrestling with the challenges or have experiences that could help provide insight on them, the 2014 CEL Convention is the place for you. CEL is a professional community dedicated to developing leadership qualities in English educators. The annual convention is an opportunity for leaders to gather, share ideas, and grow. A unique quality of the convention is that attendees have many opportunities to network over breakfast, lunch, coffee breaks, and social gatherings. Indeed, it is the perfect place to hone our collaborative leadership skills.
