Please join the Alliance for Excellent Education and Asia Society for a webinar on scaling up twenty-first-century teaching—the focus of the March 2014 meeting of the Global Cities Education Network (GCEN) in Shanghai. Urban systems across the globe face common challenges in developing effective approaches to professional learning for teachers, including practices that develop students’ twenty-first-century skills and global competencies. How can systems build educator capacity to ensure all students attain the high-level competencies essential to succeed in knowledge-based economies, regardless of their cultural or economic background?

Panelists will share insights from the recent GCEN meeting and the International Summit on the Teaching Profession in New Zealand. They will discuss effective approaches to improving the quality and distribution of educators and designing professional learning systems that can transform teaching and spread innovative practices. Bob Wise, president of the Alliance and former governor of West Virginia, will moderate the discussion. Panelists will also address questions submitted by viewers from across the nation.

Support for this webinar comes from the MetLife Foundation.
