Learn about using data to drive sustainable quality improvement in early education systems, settings, and classrooms.
Facilitated by Nonie Lesaux and Stephanie Jones, Faculty Directors of the Saul Zaentz Early Education Initiative at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, this program offers a combination of interactive lectures, collaboration opportunities, and small group reflection and planning sessions.
This program is designed for participants of Using Data to Improve Quality in Early Education Settings: Part I (previously titled Creating a Data-Use Culture in Leadership and Learning Communities: A Bootcamp for Early Education Leaders), and will build on topics covered. Past participants who register for the February program (Part II), will receive links to the recordings from the Part I sessions to be held in October, which can serve as an update and review –at no extra cost.
Each live component will be a combination of a group plenary session, which is recorded, followed by a facilitated reflection and discussion portion, which is not recorded. Part II will offer participants the opportunity to reconnect with peers and faculty, deepen their learning, and problem-solve current challenges related to data use.
