The Future of Education

In response to the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), HGSE has postponed all in-person events. While the Future of Education series is on hold, HGSE has developed two new virtual series that respond, in different ways, to the events shaping our lives and the field of education today. We hope you will join us in these conversations. 

Education Now

A new initiative by the Harvard Graduate School of Education to respond to the dramatic changes and disruptions in the field of education today.

This web series will include crucial conversations about teaching, learning, leading, and living in the time of coronavirus. Whether you are an educator, a parent/caregiver, or both, these weekly, 30-minute conversations will offer valuable ideas to help you navigate today's complex education and parenting landscape. Hosted by Richard Weissbourd, co-director of HGSE’s Human Development and Psychology master’s program and director of HGSE’s Making Caring Common project.
