The January installment of the Research Collaborative Seminar series features Paul Leather, former New Hampshire Deputy Commissioner of Education, Research Collaborative advisor, and nationally renowned leader in student-centered reforms. His presentation, “Encouraging and Sustaining Competency-Based Learning Environments: Lessons from New Hampshire,” focuses on what works, and, just as importantly, what doesn’t work when implementing competency-based education at the system and classroom levels. The webinar is facilitated by our Research Director, Eric Toshalis, with responses and reflections provided by our Students at the Center Distinguished Fellows.
This online seminar series is hosted by the Students Centered Learning Research Collaborative which works to investigate and evaluate what is known about student-centered learning and leverage that knowledge to effect meaningful change at scale. Funded by the Nellie Mae Education Foundation with additional support from the Overdeck Family Foundation, the Research Collaborative currently supports four studies and nine Students at the Center Distinguished Fellows who are leading the field in policy, practice, and research.
