Jeff and Jacquie Burgard of J.J. Burgard & Associates, Inc. facilitate professional development in GATEWAY TO MASTERY®. Workshops are primarily site-based and offer a comprehensive approach to school improvement by addressing the structural, cognitive and affective domains of learning and organizational progress through three disciplines: Culture Mastery™, Knowledge Mastery™ and Performance Mastery™. All workshops begin by applying Systems Thinking to the district, school or classroom and establishing Management with Knowledge: a non traditional management style that removes blame and puts the focus on improving the system.
Tool-Kit - Full-day individual workshops and multi-day workshops include access to web-based Tool-Kits. Tool-Kits provide the tools and resources participants need to implement the techniques learned.
Supporting the workshop:
Leadership – Now that your staff understands the basic theory and techniques in any of the three Disciplines, we take participants deeper to help them understand and apply advanced learning system leadership tools and techniques.
This four to five-day experience immerses participants in GATEWAY TO MASTERY® as students, allows practice of the techniques as teachers and provides the time to plan and prepare for the coming year. We are looking to add more regional institutes as the demand increases.
GATEWAY TO MASTERY® workshops can play an integral role in school improvement and accreditation through Advanc-Ed's Breakthrough School Improvement and District Accreditation. Contact us for a chart that shows how we support these school improvement plans.
