Webinars on Deeper Learning – Creating a system that supports deeper learning is a multi-faceted endeavor that involves thoughtful consideration of issues such as assessments, accountability, time flexibility, curricula, funding, and teacher preparation.  To help members attain a more comprehensive understanding of these and other issues, NASBE will hold three to four webinars over the next three years on a variety of topics related to deeper learning. Each webinar will draw perspectives from leading state and national experts on a particular topic and identify best practices across the country in providing students a college, career, and civic ready education.

Deeper Learning for Student Success: The State’s Role

Success in the 21st century demands that students not only master academic content, but also critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, and communication skills as well as develop other academic mindsets necessary for success in college, career, and civic life.
