On February 2, 2016, the Alliance for Excellent Education (the Alliance) and the National Commission on Teaching and America’s Future (NCTAF) held their third webinar in a series designed to explore the conditions needed to support great teaching for deeper learning. The promising practices, recommendations, and lessons learned will inform a collective effort, led by NCTAF, around supporting great teaching.
This webinar focused on a vision for what deeper learning looks like and the teaching to support it. It explored what research and best practices support educators in providing all students with opportunities to develop the competencies they will need to succeed in the future?
Panelists took an in-depth look at building a culture of collective responsibility to ensure all students have access to deeper learning. They also discussed creating conditions to support deeper learning, including new roles for teachers along with sufficient time for professional learning and collaboration.
Bob Wise, president of the Alliance and former governor of West Virginia, moderated the discussion. Panelists also addressed questions submitted by viewers from across the nation.
