Summit for Innovative EducationFebruary 4–5, 2013
Attend McREL’s Summit for Innovative Education in Denver on February 4–5 where we have assembled an all-star cast of presenters for two days of collaboration and innovation.
Eric Hanushek from Stanford University and Yong Zhao from the University of Oregon will kick off the summit by providing point and counterpoint perspectives on international testing and benchmarking, and its impact on our country’s economic vitality and competitiveness.
Over the following days, the Summit will focus on high reliability in education, and its implications on policy, theory, and practice. You’ll hear from the Institute for Healthcare Improvement on short-cycle research and development, and Tom Bellamy from the University of Washington on the theory and practice of high reliability. In addition, the Council of Chief State School Officers and the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching will present on their networked improvement strategies, and McREL staff will present our plans for networked communities of action. Participants will also have numerous opportunities to interact with the presenters and with each other.
We strongly encourage district teams to attend, which may include district and school administrators, board members, and business and community leaders.
Group discounts are available.
