ForwardEd, from the Wisconsin Center for Education Research (WCER), highlights the research and innovation emerging from the Center. The Fall 2017 edition shared the story of the development and proliferation of the Comprehensive Assessment of Leadership for Learning (CALL) System. The article, The CALL for Improved Learning, shares insights from Professors Richard Halverson and Carolyn Kelley who were the Principal Investigators on the federally-funded research project at UW-Madison. You can read the pdf version as well.
The article features quotes from Dr. Halverson; Dr. Kelley; CALL Project Director, Dr. Mark Blitz; the Georgia Leadership Institute for School Improvement (GLISI) Interim Executive Director, Leslie Hazel Bussey, and former Riverside University High School (Milwaukee, WI) Principal, Michael Harris.
The article also highlights the recently released book by Professors Halverson and Kelley: Mapping Leadership: The Tasks that Matter for Improving Teaching and Learning in Schools.
The University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Eduction has been a leader in education research, teacher preparation, and principal preparation for decades. It is fitting that a dynamic tool such as CALL would be developed and validated there. The CALL Team is proud to "CALL" UW-Madison home, as we are guided by the state motto: Forward. For more information about CALL, including a presentation of the research and theory behind the development of the system, please contact the CALL Team.
