Instructional standardization vs instructional innovation: Loose tight coupling as a leadership tool to bring balance and coherence

Feedback form is now closed.
One challenge facing school leaders is the balance between uniformity/standardization of practices and promoting individual freedom/innovation. This can be particularly vexing when it comes to instructional practices where there is recognition that there are identified best practices but we also acknowledge the importance of individualized instruction and the benefits of instructional innovation.  This session will provide a look at the organizational concept of loose tight coupling and how it can be used as a leadership lens and lever to establish a dynamic balance that fosters fidelity to essential or best practices while supporting individualization and innovation. Participants will be given the opportunity to work with peers on using the concept to address issues in their own school.
