Equitable Scaling of Deeper Learning: A Root-Cause Analysis and Actions that Follow

75-min | Livestreamed
Focus Areas: Data and Measurement; Equity, Diversity, and Belonging; Improvement Capability; Spread and Scale

This interactive session shares a research-practice partnership’s work to scale Deeper Learning Practices in the Broward County, FL, Public Schools. Participants will hear about the RPP’s strategy and how it led to a root-cause analysis of the reasons that spread of Deeper Learning may not be happening as fast or as deeply as it otherwise might. Findings from four years of research revealed that while teachers need capacity, they also need the will to implement new practices; subsequent data analysis identified possible root causes of limited teacher will. Participants will consider implications for equity, innovation creation, and innovation scaling.
