To consider the process of innovation as it applies to some of the most challenging topics in education: curriculum design for advanced learning, class size, and gaps due to prior preparation. With presenters representing educational institutions from around the country and the globe—from public, private and charter schools, and from middle school through university—we are seeking to challenge the assumptions of participants and to present a model for the analysis and diffusion of innovation.


Teachers and administrators who have responsibility for and disposition toward curricular innovation.
