The Science of Improvement: How to Systematically Innovate Classroom Practice

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In 2003, economists Autor, Levy, and Murnane published a paper about the changing task composition of the labor market. They claimed that to be successful in today's knowledge economy, workers will need to possess skills that cannot be replicated by a computer. The demand for these nonroutine cognitive capabilities such as problem-solving in novel situations, complex communications, and synthesizing information, has resulted in the need for a more highly educated workforce. However, how do we prepare students for a 21st-Century world within a 20th-Century education model? For teachers to shift their classroom practice so that students can gain these critical new skills, they need a system that supports their innovation. In this session, we will examine the tenets of successful systems and use the Science of Improvement to explore ways to implement new supports within districts and schools.
