Engage with colleagues in thinking about technical assistance as a support for programs. This session is geared for state leaders and partners implementing technical assistance. What are the skills needed to engage with colleagues in thinking about technical assistance as a support for programs at the program, implementing partner, and state levels. What are the skills needed to engage with programs to embrace and sustain change? How do we support directors to create a climate able to respond to rapid cycle improvement, inquiry-based approaches and reflective practices? How are coaches assisted in their own improvement work? Are there promising strategies to facilitate improvement with programs serving families and children from diverse cultures and language backgrounds? How are states knitting together a variety of options to support program-driven improvement and align technical assistance and initiatives within the state? Let’s identify challenges and opportunities and co-create a vision of excellence for our technical assistance systems.
