    Personal and Authentic Leadership Academy - Spring 2023  
    (Earn 40 Act 45 Hours in an Online Asynchronous Course)


    • February 1 to April 30, 2023 
    • Registration deadline: January 28, 2022


    Recent work in the learning sciences has helped paint a detailed picture of what students need to thrive. Grounded in relationships, and built upon a culture for learning, personal and authentic experiences respect the hidden stories within each child and are learner-centered by design. These experiences are filled with moments of awe, and the learning is inherently relevant and contextualized. Appropriate levels of flexibility in pace and path are granted so that agency can develop, while authentic feedback ensures fidelity in the learning process. To support the personal and authentic experience, spaces and tools are leveraged in evidence-based, meaningful ways.

    Throughout this academy, leaders will:

    • Reflect on their own leadership and what aspects help or hinder those they lead.
    • Explore ways to create cultures of innovation and risk-taking.
    • Explore a framework to identify practical ways to make learning Personal & Authentic.
    • Identify issues related to equity in access and opportunity.
    • Leave motivated to continue the needed work in your school or district moving forward.


    Personal & Authentic Leadership

    • This module will help leaders explore their own personal WHY, connect their passion to their work, and empower those around them to rise up and lead in personal and authentic ways.

    Personal & Authentic Learning Experiences

    • This module focuses on practical ways to nurture personal and authentic learning experiences, in any grade or subject area, while leading in person or remotely.

    Personal & Authentic Spaces and Tools

    • This module will help leaders understand how to leverage educational technology as an accelerant for deeper learning, and discover many free tools, all curated by educators, ready to implement in their schools.

    The Pennsylvania ASCD Curriculum Leadership Academy is a program designed to provide in-depth learning and networking opportunities that develop curriculum leadership.

The Pennsylvania ASCD Curriculum Leadership Academy is designed to help these educators gain a deeper understanding of how to get started. Strategies and techniques to be successful, resources that are available, and how to continue to improve in a variety of areas of curriculum leadership will be addressed.

    Online Whole Child Academy - Spring 2023


    Through participation in Pennsylvania ASCD's online Whole Child Academy, learners will explore how to increase academic achievement by addressing the needs of the whole child. PASCD believes a comprehensive approach to learning recognizes that in order for students to achieve at their highest academic levels, it is critical that they are emotionally and physically healthy, motivated, civically inspired, engaged, and challenged by rigorous content.

    "The demands of the 21st century require an educational approach that focuses on each student's academic, social, emotional, and physical needs in order to fully prepare them for college, career, and citizenship. A whole child approach to education coordinates policy, process, and practice by addressing students' comprehensive needs through the shared responsibility of students, families, schools, and communities. A whole child approach ensures that each child is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged."

    The online Whole Child Academy is PDE PIL approved professional development opportunity for Act 45 credit. Participants will receive forty (40) Act 45 or Act 48 hours upon successful completion of the course.

    What is the Format of the Whole Child Academy?
