In collaboration with Project Zero (PZ), the Harvard Graduate School of Education is offering opportunities to engage with the ideas of PZ both in-person and online throughout the year.
Project Zero Classroom features various frameworks and tools that enable you to look at teaching analytically, develop new approaches to planning, and make informed decisions about instruction. As a participant, you will explore ways to deepen student engagement, encourage learners to think critically and creatively, and make learning and thinking visible. In a Project Zero classroom, teachers are also learners who model intellectual curiosity and rigor, interdisciplinary and collaborative inquiry, and sensitivity to the ethical and aesthetic dimensions of learning.
These 13-week, coach-facilitated, asynchronous online courses are research-based and grounded in day-to-day teaching and leadership practice — you can apply what you learn, as you learn. Educators form teams of 3 to 6 to participate. You will work with peers facing similar challenges and take away real-world solutions, inspiration, and the support of an engaged community. Each course promotes active, team-based learning that supports collaboration and sharing in schools and districts. Each has its own focus area but they also work well together.
