CEPR-Affiliated Sessions at SXSWedu 2014


Monday, March 3, 2014 (All day) to Thursday, March 6, 2014 (All day)


Austin, TX

Two of CEPR's programs, the Best Foot Forward Project (BFF) and the Strategic Data Project (SDP), presented at SXSWedu 2014. In Opening Doors to Advance Analytics for Your Agency, a panel demonstrated how SDP is changing how education agencies think about, use, and present data to inform policy decisions and communicate with stakeholders. Panel members included SDP Executive Director Nick Morgan, Superintendent Renee Foose of the Howard County Public School System (SDP Partner), SDP Fellow Atnreakn Alleyne of the Delaware Department of Education, and Senior Education Consultant Jeff Watson of Versifit Technologies. For Digital Video: Fast Forwarding Teacher Evaluation, BFF Project Director Miriam Greenberg shared how the study could transform classroom observations by giving teachers cameras and allowing them to replace in-person evaluations with their best lessons. Live updates from the sessions were posted to CEPR's Twitter (@HarvardCEPR) and Facebook (/HarvardCEPR) accounts.
