What Makes a World-Class Teacher? Submit Your Ideas

February 24th, 2014 by Amneris Solano

Last week more than 1,300 people from across North Carolina attended the Emerging Issues Forum: "Teachers and the Great Economic Debate" to hear national and international speakers discuss and debate how to train, retain and support world-class teachers in North Carolina classrooms.

But, what's next?

In an effort to facilitate continued community engagement and promote action around these priorities, IEI has designated a virtual space for a six-week “boot camp” that is open to all who wish to participate.  

Beginning March 10, participants can learn how to build a local team, develop an advocacy-in-action plan unique to their school / community and apply for funds to implement that plan through IEI’s six-week, focused online activity: MOOC-Ed: World Class Teaching.

This self-guided project based learning class is offered in partnership with the Friday Institute for Educational Innovation. It will focus on the themes and priorities from this year's Forum, including work-force development, teacher training and retention, and the broad economic impacts of teacher quality in NC.  Access the class anywhere, online, on your own time.
