UELC Fellowship in New Orleans
Partnering with New Orleans CMOs and Teachers College Faculty to Support Schools and School Systems in New York City
The UELC Fellowship in New Orleans
The UELC Fellowship in New Orleans is a cohort model of job-embedded professional learning programming designed to grow teacher leaders’ capacities for future administrative roles within their current organizations. In its pilot year of 2017-2018, the UELC will work with a small portfolio of schools to tailor fellowship experiences to meet both strategic and emerging organizational needs for the growth of leaders in New Orleans schools. Leveraging the expertise and research initiatives of Teachers College faculty and expert facilitators, the UELC Fellowship in New Orleans will provide New Orleans schools with local access to Columbia University Teachers College.
With a track record of excellence in New York, Charlotte, New Orleans, and Los Angeles, the UELC is engaging sitting and aspiring leaders at the classroom, building, and district levels in engaging, relevant, and sustaining professional learning experiences across the country. The D16 Leadership Collaborative Pilot in New York City currently provides an entire district in Brooklyn, NYC with intensive monthly professional learning programming aligned to the professional growth goals articulated by their superintendent. In offering year-long programming tailored to the context of each district, UELC is able to adapt programming content, format, and outcome measures to support local leadership needs in urban school systems.
