The Next Education Workforce: From Thought to Action

Optional pre-convening Wednesday, April 22 | $100

Convening price: $250 early bird | $350 after Feb. 17

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.

Join us for the second annual Next Education Workforce convening in Scottsdale, Arizona on April 23–24.

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.

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

What you can expect:

  • Optional Pre-Convening: Visit a Next Education Workforce school site on Wednesday, April 22, during a limited pre-convening opportunity
  • Learn how partner schools are implementing Next Education Workforce models
  • Build communities of practice around particular themes: designing and building teams of educators; addressing policy barriers; building financial models; and designing teacher preparation
  • Share research and deepen the research agenda
