Registration for the 2013-2014 streaming seminar series sponsored by TeachingWorks is now open. This year's series, like last year's, is titled "Teaching Teachers Roundtable: Preparing Novices to Use High-Leverage Practices." Each of the three seminars will bring three expert teacher educators to the University of Michigan School of Education (U-M SOE) to discuss their approaches to training novices in a specific high-leverage teaching practice.

  • The first seminar (October 16, 2013, 4:10-6:00 p.m. EST) will focus on implementing organizational routines, procedures, and strategies to support a learning environment and will feature Doug Lemov (Uncommon Schools) along with Deborah Ball and Betsy Davis (U-M SOE).
  • The second seminar (January 28, 2014, 4:10-5:30 p.m. EST) will focus on communicating about a student with a parent or guardian, and will feature Orin Gutlerner (MATCH Teacher Residency) and Carla O’Connor and Debi Khasnabis (U-M SOE).
  • The third seminar (April 28, 2014, 4:10-5:30 p.m. EST) will focus on making content explicit, and will feature Bob Bain and Elizabeth Birr Moje (U-M SOE) and Mark Windshitl (University of Washington College of Education).

In 2012-2013, more than 1,000 individuals from around the world signed up to view the seminar series online. This year, we invite our online audience to join the conversation during the seminar through Twitter (#teachingteachers2014), Facebook, and via email (
