“We wanted to take a look at schools that paid attention to time and understood that teaching is really, really difficult and that, if teachers had time to learn with and from each other, it would benefit their children and it would benefit themselves as teachers.”
– Jon Snyder, Ed.D., Executive Director, Stanford Center for Opportunity Policy in Education (SCOPE)

Jon Snyder, Executive Director for SCOPE, and Dion Burns, Senior Researcher at Learning Policy Institute, will discuss the findings of the study Teachers’ Time: Collaborating for Learning, Teaching, and Leading, which was designed to help both practitioners and policymakers understand the teaching and learning implications of structuring time differently in schools. The study illustrates how these uses of time relate to a range of educational outcomes, from building more successful curriculum to supporting teacher learning and development to facilitating deeper, more meaningful learning opportunities for students.

In addition, the talk will address the school characteristics and relevant themes that emerged across all four school sites during the course of the study.
