Cultivating Educator Efficacy
Educator efficacy is a self-fulfilling prophecy: The more a teacher believes in his or her ability to positively impact student learning, the more he or she will do so and feel a sense of thriving in the profession. This issue will explore how schools can strengthen educators’ and leaders’ sense of efficacy—through instructional improvement initiatives, coaching, collaborative professional learning approaches, data collection, cultural competence, and culture-building strategies. A central emphasis will be on developing collective efficacy in schools—researcher John Hattie’s number one factor for improving student learning—as a way of empowering educators.
