ExcelinEd is pleased to announce that enrollment is open for our newest EdPolicy Leaders Online course, How Do We Stack Up? Using OECD’s PISA to Drive Progress in U.S. Education. The course is a combined cohort and self-paced model, starting on May 23. It offers seven weekly webinars for participants to connect with education leaders across the country.
How Do We Stack Up? explores how state, district and school level education leaders can use PISA’s powerful data and information from the OECD Test for Schools (based on PISA) to improve student outcomes. The course was developed in collaboration with America Achieves and with editorial contributions from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
The course features a variety of experts from across the education spectrum, including:
- Mitchell Chester, Commissioner of Elementary and Secondary Education, Massachusetts
- Renee Foose, Superintendent, Howard County Public School System, Maryland
- Deborah A. Gist, Superintendent, Tulsa Public Schools, Oklahoma
- Eric Grunden, Chief School Officer and Founder, Research Triangle High School, North Carolina
- Andreas Schleicher, Director for the Directorate of Education and Skills, OECD
- Jon Schnur, Executive Chairman, America Achieves
- Lisa Wilson, Director of Assessment and Research, Blue Valley School District, Kansas
Each of the seven modules in the course will take one to two hours to complete and course completers will earn a certificate of completion. If you are an education leader or reformer, don’t miss out on this unique professional development opportunity.
