The Educator Growth and Effectiveness (EGE) model is a teacher-centered, six-step process supported by ACLS and SABES to improve teachers’ professional practice and help them become as effective as possible at helping students achieve their academic, career, and life goals.
ACLS supports the use of EGE to meet its MA Policies for Effective Adult Education in Community Adult Learning Centers and Correctional Institutions requirement that programs “create and sustain the conditions that enable powerful teaching and learning to occur” with “effective, self-reflective teachers dedicated to improving teaching practice and achieving student outcomes.”
The EGE online course begins with the EGE Overview course. Once you complete this prerequisite, you will automatically be enrolled in and eligible to take one of the role-specific modules:
- EGE for Directors/Team Leaders
- EGE for Teachers
- EGE for Coaches
Once you register via this calendar posting, Ruzica Banovic will contact you with information on how to access the online course.
