Recent Publications From the League
Each month, the League publishes Leadership Abstracts, Learning Abstracts, and Innovation Showcase. The most recent issues are available on the League website.
Leadership Abstracts. If You Build It, Will They Come? Achieving Scale in the Diffusion of Innovations in Education by Christopher Dede, James W. Dearing, Deborah Boisvert, David McNeel, and Michael Lesiecki. A novel idea is a precious thing, yet without a plan for making it work, a lightbulb moment could quickly burn out. In the May issue of Leadership Abstracts, you’ll learn about a framework that will help bypass implementation pitfalls and lead the way to widespread innovation at your institution.
Learning Abstracts. Preparing Future Teachers for Meaningful Urban Education by Janet Waasdorp. Monroe Community College answers the call for more math and science teachers in inner-city schools by designing a curriculum that addresses student learning styles, behavior, and achievement, as well as overcrowding and poverty. Read about methods and tools introduced in these courses and the success of the Urban Teacher Education Institute.
Innovation Showcase. 2008 Innovation of the Year Award Winners. The perfect mix of quality, efficiency, and invention must come together to develop a novel idea into the Innovation of the Year. Find out about this 26-year League tradition and the 54 exciting programs receiving the award in 2008.
