We look forward to learning with you at WISSIT in August!

We know a school can be only as good as its teachers. The best schools are those where teachers continuously improve their practice through collaboration and guided self-reflection.

Three questions guide our vision of WISSIT: What if we were to bring together motivated teachers from a wide variety of schools in order to engage in deep discussion about effective teaching and learning? What if we provided support when they returned to their schools, where they put into place what they have learned? What if these teachers were able to build a school-wide culture of reflection and collaboration with their colleagues?

At WISSIT, you’ll be joining educators from all over the Washington, DC, area, as well as researchers from Project Zero at the Harvard University Graduate School of Education.  We will engage in an intensive week-long exploration of two themes, Building a Culture of Thinking and Educating for Global Competence.

See you on Monday morning, August 3!
