How can district leaders support strengthening educators’ skills for COVID recovery in the classroom while also empowering their growth and advancement?

Join guest speakers, Ryan Walters, Oklahoma Secretary of Education, Dr. Brandon Tatum, chief strategy officer for Oklahoma Christian University, and Dr. Darlene Ruscitti, regional superintendent of DuPage Regional Office of Education, to discuss how micro-credentials are being leveraged to attract, develop, and retain high-quality teachers. In this webinar, you will learn:

  • How teachers are engaging in micro-credential-based learning to support their students with COVID recovery including addressing learning loss, implementing social-emotional learning, and attending to equity.
  • How these same micro-credentials are being used to create new forms of accredited masters degrees, enabling more affordable, flexible, competency-based alternatives to traditional teacher advancement options.
  • How districts are leveraging ESSER funds to solve future talent pipeline needs by attracting and retaining teachers with more coherent career pathways.
