Change happens in education through the efforts of educators and leaders who have the power to shape and put into practice those efforts that will transform classrooms, schools, and communities. Are you an educator or leader interested in  being part of the conversation about improvement in education?

The Carnegie Foundation Summit on Improvement in Education (March 10-12, 2014, in San Francisco) provides an opportunity for educators and educational leaders to discuss the tenets and tools of improvement science to address problems in our nation’s colleges and schools. Why join this discussion?

Engage with colleagues across all levels of education with a shared interest in education and improvement.

Discuss changes within policies, funding systems, and professional development opportunities that could better the education system through improvement science.

Inspire others to create and think outside the current educational system.

Learn from and share with leaders already pioneering new problem solving techniques, solutions, and technologies that can be incorporated into improvement science.

Learn how to apply the specific methodology used by improvement science to educational issues and organized around four key strands: improvement science methods and tools; improvement science applied in practice; leadership and culture; and the power of crowds: partnerships, collaborative, and community.

Identify actionable ideas to take back to university campuses, districts, schools, and classrooms.

I chose a career in education 25 years ago. Today, with my colleagues I am grateful to engage in professional work with teaches and school leaders and witness the difference they are making in their classrooms and school systems, and with students. Educators and leaders in education deserve opportunities to have purpose, do worthwhile work, and make a difference. The Summit provides this opportunity by encouraging participants to transform their collective concerns into shared accomplishments. Check out the list of speakers. Take a look at the agenda.
