Overview of AISI Cycle 5

Educators as Designers of Learning

This project will focus on research questions throughout the levels of education in our school division.  The research questions will  focus on improving student learning.

District Level – How do we support administrators in their role as Instructional Leaders in order to improve school completion rates?

Administrator/School Level – How does what students are doing, when they are learning, affect their engagement in their learning?

Teacher Level – If I focus on brain research strategies in my classroom will student engagement increase?
