Learning and Support

Our vision for CSU's Colleges and Schools of Education is a system where every Educator Preparation Program has a sustained and institutionalized approach to data use that: 

  1. Promotes an inquiry orientation to data use
  2. Provides a data infrastructure and coherent set of systems that enables access to high-quality measures that support continuous improvement goals and processes.
  3. Establishes routines and norms for collaborative data conversations
  4. Grounds improvement efforts in short cycles of data collection and evaluation[1]

Resources, Coaching and Facilitation Support for Leaders

Navigating the demands of accountability and accreditation while building a coherent data infrastructure and a culture of continuous improvement can be challenging for any leader or leadership team. The EdQ Team​ offers consultation, coaching and facilitation to EPPs in the following areas:

  • Dashboard introduction for first-time users
  • Guided inquiry of campus results focused on specific topics of interest
  • Launching and supporting continuous improvement cycles using DataView and other data sources.
  • Individual coaching for leaders planning data conversations

Improvement Groups​​

​Helping a newly-formed team or group achieve an improvement aim is challenging work requiring a mix of improvement content, coaching, and associated resources. Using the tools and frameworks of Improvement Science, EdQ provides campus technical assistance supporting the launch and development of a small number of high-priority local improvement efforts. EdQ also connects a growing community of EPP faculty and staff engaged in improvement efforts to one another, building a common, system-wide set of improvement tools and resources.​​

EdQ has developed a year-long experience for data professionals interested in digging deeply into improvement concepts and engaging in cross-campus learning and sharing to improve their practice. Our inaugural cohort represents 12 Educator Preparation programs across the CSU with an impressive range of experience in the field.
