Event Overview

Join Public Agenda and the Albert Shanker Institute for a free 1-hour webinar on Thursday, Sept. 20, to explore how teachers, principals, superintendents, school board members and other administrators and leaders can work together to foster collaboration among teachers. While research shows that teacher collaboration can offer many benefits for students and teachers alike, and while educators are generally supportive of collaborative practices, there is still much to learn about how to foster collaborative workplaces.

How to Create a More Collaborative Workplace for Teachers begins to fill this gap by bringing together a panel of education professionals who will discuss the efficacy of teacher collaboration and share their knowledge and experiences on how to foster more collaborative workplaces.

Attendees will also learn more about a suite of materials designed by Public Agenda, with support from the Spencer Foundation, that can contribute to a better-informed dialogue about how teachers can work more collaboratively. The webinar will conclude with a question and answer session for attendees.
