Leaders Online Forum 2020
Getting Better @ Getting Better:
Equity, Empathy & Education for Today’s Students
We change the game for the most vulnerable students by making their assets the foundation of a powerful education.
For 25 years, the Institute for Learning at the University of Pittsburgh has welcomed innovative leaders from around the country to meet and engage in deep, inquisitive discussion of the issues and ideas regarding methods of improving education, particularly for our most vulnerable students, and to come together to address the challenges of our industry.
Reflecting on the changing needs of our communities, we have assembled this online conference to present keynote speakers, roundtable discussions, and workshops to continue to expand and deepen our dialogue on key issues, as well as the new challenges that are presented in transitioning education to online delivery methods.
Each session duration is 1 hour. Forum attendees will receive access to all sessions and may attend depending on preference.
