The respected educator, Professor Richard Elmore of Harvard, recently offered an excellent course titled, Leaders of Learning in Harvard’s 3rd Quarter of 2014. It benefitted anyone who is a stakeholder of education but particularly school board members, superintendents, administrators, principals and teachers. This online course was to be taken according to each person’s own individual availability of time, is free, and can be audited without credit. Those who completed the course receive a certificate from Harvard.
Several educational leaders offered their advice about the ways in which we can best prepare teachers, students and our education system for success in the 21st century. Prakash Nair of Fielding Nair International was interviewed for the course; his sections focused on the physical environment as a catalyst for educational transformation.
