Ensemble Learning's Impact

Ensemble Learning’s Impact can best be felt by the number of our customers who choose to continue working with us year after year.  Participants are overwhelmingly happy with the level of support and care that Ensemble Learning provides.

In our most recent project, Learning While Leading, 100% of participants responded that the program content was useful and that the presenters were knowledgeable, engaging, and clear.

“The Ensemble team was flexible with their curriculum to customize training and development specifically to our school and our students.  They helped us dig deep into our data, examine our student population and assess our actual needs around the development of our multilingual population.  Our teachers now have foundational skills and a springboard from which they can take off towards meeting the needs of English language learners”

What to Expect from a Vista Learning Get Ready! Training

Who?

Ensemble Learning provides team of educators who have deep experience with the assets and needs of English learners, particularly those new to the country or just beginning their journey acquiring a second language.

What?

We provide differentiated training that considers the needs and strengths of the educators, schools and students being served.  Our professional development is based on the latest research on adult learning. 

When?

We are available during summer trainings or during the school year.  Currently, we have openings during both. 

Where?

All of our trainings can be done on-site at your school or virtually.  We recommend that any virtual trainings be broken down into 1.5 hour segments to avoid screen fatigue and loss of engagement. 

The Ensemble Learning Commitment

Our commitment to our partners is to work as an ensemble to best serve students.  We work closely with you to identify strengths and needs at your school. 

We set high outcomes for our work.  Our goals are:

  • All participants will end each unit with a high level of unit completion for each Vista unit or 90% or higher on the unit test.
  • Students will show an increase in their language proficiency as measured by the WIDA assessment
  • Participants will have high fidelity to the implementation of the curriculum as measured by walkthrough forms used by peers, administrators, or the Ensemble team
  • Participants will have high satisfaction with the Ensemble Learning trainings.  Specifically 90% or higher of the participants will agree or strongly agree with the statement, “I feel ready to implement the curriculum with fidelity”.
