A Seat at the Table With Education Week
We know that access to leadership is critical to inspiring you and your work. That is why we created “A Seat at the Table With Education Week”—a live, online video conversation and webinar with experts in the field, including your fellow practitioners. These conversations provide you with the opportunity to engage directly with educators and researchers on a range of topics and issues that matter most to you.
Even during these challenging times, you know that a better education for all students is possible. And we do, too.
Join the conversation. Break down the barriers. Shape the future of education.
Fields of interest vary widely on a range of topics you'll see below.
Tune in regularly for this virtual chat, a free-form discussion between educators, researchers, and leaders from the K-12 world.
• No presentations.
• No handouts.
• Just compelling idea exchange.
Ask your questions and engage with leading-edge practitioners and cutting-edge thinkers who, like you, want to make a difference in—and out—of schools today.
Jim Knight is an instructional-leadership researcher, with a big following of instructional coaches. Knight and DeWitt will discuss the often-complicated duties of instructional coaches. For many teachers, coaches are a helpful resource who can make a real difference to their practice, but for others, they are simply compliance officers. Keeping these challenges in mind, the two will discuss how instructional coaches can best help teachers navigate their way through remote, hybrid, and in-person teaching to create a better and more meaningful classroom experience for their students.
When the pandemic arrived this spring, it revealed in stark terms which students had opportunities to connect online with their teachers and which ones were handed packets. Host Peter DeWitt will be joined by education leaders Blanca Baltazar-Sabbah, Andrew Fletcher, Neil Gupta, and Jan Iwase to discuss how to create the equitable classroom. Participate in a lively, interactive discussion with educators who have been working hard—both before and during COVID-19—to provide equal access to all students.
Join John Hattie, professor and researcher at the University of Melbourne, and Peter DeWitt for “A Seat at the Table.” The conversation will focus on how educators can use Hattie’s research to provide deep learning experiences for students in spite of the challenges brought on by COVID-19. We will explore Hattie’s often-criticized research and discuss how he uses those criticisms to help guide his own level of improvement and clarity.
Join Zaretta Hammond and Peter DeWitt for "A Seat at the Table" where we will explore with you how to provide culturally responsive teaching whether you are in the physical or virtual classroom. Discuss with us how to ensure all students have access to an education that has a positive impact.
Join John D. Marshall, chief equity officer, for Jefferson County Public Schools, Louisville, Ky., for a live talk show on racial justice, equity, and schools with Christina Samuels, Education Week’s equity beat reporter. We’ll be taking as many of your questions as we can.
Former K-5 public school principal turned popular author, presenter, and Education Week opinion blogger, Peter DeWitt will discuss grading and assessment during the current pandemic with Thomas R. Guskey, a senior research scholar at the University of Louisville.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to require social distancing and remote learning, districts and schools can do a lot to support parents and families in their roles as co-educators. Join us for a free online event where four experts will discuss what schools can do to support families.
