2013 COPIS Conference Registration

Call for Proposals: Disentangling Goodness and Effectiveness in Education-Implications for the Field

October 18-20, 2013
Nittany Lion Inn
State College/University Park, PA
Hosted by Penn State University

In the last few years the move to measure educator and school effectiveness has almost surpassed baseball as the national pastime. Calls for enhanced accountability and rigorous measurement of effectiveness dominate the educational literature as well as the daily lives of students and teachers. What exactly do we mean by effectiveness and how does it relate to goodness? Are effective teachers good teachers? Are good schools effective schools? What role should supervisors and the field of supervision play in separating effectiveness from goodness, both in definition and in assessment?

COPIS seeks proposals related to the theme, "Disentangling Goodness and Effectiveness in Education: Implications for the Field of Supervision." We are also open to proposals that aren't directly linked to the conference theme as long as they are supervision-related.
