2021 Summit Digital Library

Overview

Carnegie Foundation’s 2021 Summit enhanced the continuous improvement skills and practices of more than 1,800 attendees. Educators new to improvement learned fundamental concepts and practical tools for driving improvement and leading networked improvement communities. Educators deeply engaged in improvement work refined and expand their improvement approaches and toolkits in service of addressing complex problems and issues of inequity in educational outcomes.

The 2021 Summit Digital Library catalogues all three keynote presentations; recordings of the 78 live sessions, 52 pre-recorded sessions, and 43 posters, and accompanying session materials and resources. Summit registrants can access this archive at their convenience for continued professional learning throughout the year.

“It is an opportunity to watch at my own convenience, stop and start, make notes, and write down ideas as they surface. I love the on-demand sessions and watched some of them twice and parts of others twice as well.”

“Like everyone, my schedule is too difficult to be at that many live sessions. I enjoyed picking through the sessions with a cup of tea at night and absorbing the excellent information shared.
