Research Leadership Learning Podcast

Welcome to the Research Leadership Learning Podcast from Dowling College's Research Leadership Learning Center.

On this podcast we explore many fields of knowledge related to leadership in social agencies, bringing you conversations with teachers, principals, superintendents and others working in and around the Long Island region, including Dowling faculty and Dowling doctoral candidates. By sharing research and knowledge from the field, we hope to develop a profound human awareness among leaders of social agencies in Nassau and Suffolk Counties and beyond.

Shownotes with related links:

In this episode, Dr. Manley speaks with Dr. Carl Bonuso, former Superintendent of Schools in Wantagh, current editor-in-chief of the Long Island Education Review and Dowling College adjunct professor. The topic is the new standards for the observation and evaulation of teachers. More importantly, they discuss how vital it will be to connect those standards to "collegial conversations" in which classroom teachers and school administrators share a common understanding and common language on what is to be evaluated. They also cover the need for targeted professional development, the use of evidence in observations, and the need for dialog between supervisor and teacher.
