The world of competition and corporate bottom lines drives us to extremes. We need to go home, we need to disconnect and recharge, but it’s increasingly difficult to do so. When not used mindfully, our tech can sap our focus, productivity, creativity and, ultimately, our impact. Embracing the Joy of Missing Out is essential for success in all aspects of how we love, live, parent and lead. Joy, by definition, is “the emotion evoked by well-being, success and the prospect of possessing what one desires.” It’s what we all want. Want to get off tech? Find something else to do that brings you joy -- and lean into it. Join award-winning author Christina Crook to learn how mindfulness is the opposite of distraction and the key to a healthier relationship with technology. Break Free from compulsive digital use and reclaim that time for what really matters to you. Set Intentions and implement strategies that prioritize your joy and satisfaction.

This webinar is ideal for early education leaders and teachers.

Professional Development for Christian School Educators and Leaders

Professional development (PD) opportunities are nearly universal in the experiences of U.S. educators, both in public school settings and in Christian schools. The question of which PD strategies are most effective has become more critical in recent years, as schools face increasing internal and external pressures to improve student outcomes and optimize instructional expenditures. As a result, many school leaders are seeking to identify PD opportunities with high return on investment (ROI) in terms of student learning and achievement.

In an effort to address this issue systematically, a comprehensive literature synthesis was commissioned by ACSI (Swaner 2016). The synthesis, which surveyed over 500 scholarly articles and resources over the past 20 years, asked the question, “What are best practices in PD for Christian school teachers and leaders?” While little research was found specific to Christian education, what was available corroborated much of the broader literature on PD in K–12 schools. A set of characteristics of effective PD were identified in the literature, as well as a range of practices for which there exists research on their effectiveness. The synthesis also reviewed the evidence for the importance of cultures of continuous improvement to the effectiveness of any PD efforts.
