The edXchange initiative at Arizona State University’s Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College will be hosting our first Saturday Scholars event of the year on September 6, 2014 from 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. in the Education Lecture Hall on the Tempe campus at 100 E. Gammage Parkway.
Dr. Gustavo Fischman, professor at ASU‘s Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College and director of edXchange, and Dr. Eric Haas, education researcher and consultant, will share insights from their new book co-authored with Joe Brewer, “Dumb Ideas Won’t Create Smart Kids: Straight Talk about Bad School Reform, Good Teaching, & Better Learning.”
Gustavo and Eric have been collaborating for more than 10 years, most recently as co-authors (with Joe Brewer) of Dumb Ideas Won’t Create Smart Kids: Straight
Talk about Bad School Reform, Good Teaching, and Better, Learning.
Fast & Slow Teaching and Learning in the 21st Century will offer incisive perspectives on why much of what is called educational “reform” does not work; how to identify what’s wrong in many reforms; and what educators, families and institutions can do to promote better educational opportunities for all children.
More than a “talk”, this event will be a conversation around shared, collective efforts to improve school reform, teaching, and learning.
This will be an exciting opportunity for current and future teachers, as well as parents, students, and those who are interested in improving educational opportunities for all students.
