Course Description

Credit Validation for Carnegie Summit Participants Only 

Marking its tenth anniversary this year, the Carnegie Summit on Improvement in Education aims to propel and support a future in which equity-focused continuous improvement occurs every day in thousands of educational settings. The Carnegie Summit is more than an annual conference—it’s a convening of movement makers we call improvers, who come to celebrate their impact and fortify for more. Conversations at Summit provide the distinctive magic; improvers across role, geography, and life experience swap stories, grounded in a common language of improvement methodology. Participants can attend breakout sessions in four strands: Improvement Science in Practice, Leadership for Improvement, Improvement Networks in Practice, and Methods of Improvement Science and Networks.
