  • Online

Truly innovative schools teach students how to apply content knowledge learned in the classroom to real-world situations while helping them develop the critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and other deeper learning skills that today’s jobs demand. This webinar, co-hosted by the Alliance for Excellent Education, Center on Education Policy (CEP), and Council for a Strong America, will feature new research from CEP on the most valuable skills and competencies required for more than 300 occupations nationwide. It will also examine the role that external partners, including business, higher education, and community organizations, can play in helping students develop expertise in the field to supplement the academic content and learning that takes place in schools. Panelists will answer questions submitted by the online audience.

This online event will take place on August 23, 2017, from 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm EDT. Registration is required. Educators, as well as community and business leaders, will find it informative.
