How can teacher leaders enable creativity, collaboration, and innovation in their classrooms and beyond? Come to the second annual teacher leader institute this May at Central Connecticut State University to find out.
Two internationally known and influential education thinkers—Dr. Peter Gamwell and Dr. Pasi Sahlberg—will keynote the morning institute and focus on supporting teacher leaders and administrators in emphasizing creativity, collaboration and innovation in classrooms and schools. Dr. Gamwell will highlight his work in Ottawa, Canada, while Dr. Sahlberg will focus on his work in Finland. Both men are credited with major influence on the structure of education in their respective countries; both the city of Ottawa and the country of Finland are recognized as education super-powers and supporters of teachers as professional leaders. After their keynotes, they will engage in a conversation with each other and the audience.
The day will include breakout sessions and will end with a panel of Silicon Valley startup entrepreneurs—many educated in Connecticut’s schools—who will weigh in on what it takes to conceive of and implement a start-up and how schools can nurture innovators, collaborators, and problem solvers like themselves.
