Collective efficacy has become a buzzword in recent years - with accompanying misunderstandings, misapplications, and criticisms. In this de-mystifying and debunking episode, Peter DeWitt talks with collective efficacy experts Megan Tschannen-Moran and Jenni Donohoo.

The authors clarify that collective efficacy  is about our collective beliefs in our own power to positively influence student learning. If a teacher (or leader) team has collective efficacy, then setbacks, challenges, and failures don't derail them. COVID-19 has actually provided a lot of opportunities for leaders and teachers to build collective efficacy throughout the school community.

In this episode, you'll learn:

-The benefits and criticisms of collective efficacy

-The relationship between self-efficacy and collective efficacy

-The building blocks of collective efficacy.
