We are honored to announce Victoria L. Bernhardt, Ph.D., as one of our Expert Speakers at the 2017 Performance Matters National Learners Conference. Dr. Bernhardt is Executive Director of the Education for the Future Initiative, whose mission is to build the capacity of learning organizations at all levels to gather, analyze, and use data to continuously improve learning for all students. She is also a Professor (currently on leave) in the College of Communication and Education at California State University, Chico. Dr. Bernhardt is the author, or co-author, of numerous books, including:
- Data Analysis for Continuous School Improvement (3rd ed.) is a call to action. It is about inspiring schools and school districts to commit to continuous school improvement by providing a framework that will result in improving teaching for every teacher, and learning for every student, through the comprehensive use of data. This Third Edition is the culmination of over 25 years of doing the hard work in schools and districts, both nationally and internationally, to analyze, report, communicate, and use multiple measures of data for continuous school improvement. This book provides new and very specific tools, timelines, and strategies that will help schools and districts become true learning organizations.
- Data, Data Everywhere: Bringing All The Data Together For Continuous School Improvement (2nd ed.), is an easy-to-read primer that describes what it takes to achieve student learning growth at every grade level, in every subject area, and with every student group. It is a perfect resource for teachers, administrators, support staff, and students of leadership to guide comprehensive school improvement that will make a difference for all students.
Dr. Bernhardt will be sharing her expert insights during her Wednesday session, Data Analysis for Continuous School Improvement, which will be offered twice. We hope you add her to your #PMNLC2017 agenda!
