This is the third conversation I've had since the beginning of the podcast with Jon Eckert. In this podcast I ask Jon about what John Hattie calls "Collective Teacher Efficacy" and how it is the factor that has the greatest impact on student learning. Likewise, I ask Jon about what he calls "Catalytic" leadership in his book Leading Together.
Jon's Bio: As a Professor of Education at Wheaton College, Jon’s research includes teaching effectiveness, teacher preparation, teacher evaluation, and teacher compensation. In addition to his work at Wheaton he is a Research Consultant for the Center for Teaching Quality and he has also consulted with the National Institute for Excellence in Teaching and the U.S. Department of Education. You can find his recent research on Collective Leadership in his new book, “Leading Together: Teachers and Administrators Improving Student Outcomes.”
