    Join us for a two-day virtual convening as we ask — and answer — questions of equity, deeper and personalized learning, and how to build a more effective and sustainable education workforce. 

    About the event

    This all-virtual event creates smaller-group experiences with experts who will facilitate breakout discussions on their area of expertise and the Next Education Workforce. Attendees, working in teams, will use this conversation to move a collaborative work product forward. Register to address one of five topics:

    1. How might we empower teams of educators to identify, address and monitor issues of equity for all learners?
    2. How might we leverage teams of educators to design deeper, more personalized learning experiences for all students?
    3. How might colleges of education collaborate with partners to build sustainable novice educator pathways and experiences?
    4. How might we design policies at the local, state and/or national levels that support the development of the Next Education Workforce?
    5. How might we define and measure broader outcomes for learners and educators?

    Participants should be interested in:

    • Thinking differently about the one-teacher, one-classroom model of schooling
    • Building teams with distributed expertise to deepen and personalize learning for students
    • Crafting creative staffing models and budgets to support teams of educators
    • Building stakeholder engagement
    • Leading for systemic change

    Registration coming soon.

    About the Next Education Workforce

    The Next Education Workforce starts with the conviction that, if we’re not getting the workforce or the learning outcomes we want, we need to redesign the profession, the workplace and how we prepare people for both. We work with schools and other partners to 1) provide all students with deeper and personalized learning by building teams of educators with distributed expertise, and 2) empower educators by developing new opportunities for role-based specialization and advancement.
