How do we measure the specialized content knowledge required to teacher mathematics?
The Mathematical Knowledge for Teaching (MKT) instrument is a tool for measuring the specialized knowledge K-8 teachers of mathematics use in teaching.Since its creation, MKT items have been widely used in evaluating teacher learning in professional development programs and investigating the relationship between teachers’ knowledge and practice.
In response to user demand, the current work aims to expand the...
An online professional development program for K-12 educators looking to improve instructional coaching for math teachers. Based upon the research of HGSE Professor Heather Hill, the workshop provides strategies for promoting high-quality math instruction and explores the role of school leaders, instructional coaches, and peer teachers in that process. The workshop begins with an introduction to Mathematical Quality of Instruction (MQI), an observation instrument and set of protocols that support teachers, coaches, and principals in analyzing instruction and planning for improvement. You will then practice observing classrooms and engaging in coaching conversations using MQI and other protocols. In the final portion of the workshop, you will explore strategies for using rubric-based coaching with instructional video capture in your own setting.

The eighth annual Strategic Data Project (SDP) Convening will take place in Boston, MA on May 30–June 1, 2018. The event brings together fellows, partners, practitioners, researchers, and leaders in the field of education to discuss the role that data, analytics, and leadership play in our continued effort to transform the use of data in education to improve student achievement.
The SDP Institute for Leadership in Analytics is a five-day data workshop at Harvard University for education analysts and system leaders who want to leverage data to inform decision making and improve student achievement. The curriculum provides a foundation or refresher course on problem analysis, technical methods, program evaluation, and data visualization and communication techniques. Hands-on activities, including computer lab sessions, demonstrate how to gain key insights around priority topics such as teacher effectiveness or college-going success. Participants need not be an expert in statistical programming, though a basic understanding is recommended. Learn more
