Collective efficacy is about the overwhelming power that school teams have to impact change when they join together to solve problems. Research shows that collective efficacy matters more in relation to increasing student achievement than the neighbourhoods where students come from and their level of household income (Donohoo, Hattie, & Eells, 2018). What educator teams do to create a better environment for student learning has a clear, measurable, and more profound impact on student achievement than demographic variables. Since ‘Collective Teacher Efficacy’ topped John Hattie’s Visible Learning list of factors that matter the most in raising student achievement school leaders (both formal and informal) are asking themselves: How can we foster a sense of collective efficacy? In this session, we’ll identify research-based, efficacy enhancing leadership practices and examine enabling school conditions that help efficacy to thrive.
