Hamre to Give Distinguished Lecture at NYU Steinhardt
Bridget Hamre, associate director of the Center for Advanced Study of Teaching and Learning, will be featured as the Isabel and David Mahalick Distinguished Lecturer for 2011-12 at the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education & Human Development in New York on Wednesday, October 26.
Hamre’s lecture will be titled “Creating Effective and Efficient Interventions to Improve Teachers’ Interactions with Students: Unpacking the Mechanisms of Change.” Hamre will speak with researchers and graduate students on the current context of professional development opportunities for teachers and the challenges that developers face. She will discuss current findings from the center’s work with MyTeachingPartner™ coaching and other Classroom Assessment Scoring System™ (CLASS) related interventions. A key aspect of her presentation will highlight the need for teacher-focused professional development that helps teachers move the conscious acts of effective teaching into unconscious, automatic schemas.
