World Class Teaching (MOOC-Ed)

In an effort to facilitate continued community engagement, the Institute for Emerging Issues has partnered with the Friday Institute for Educational Innovation and designated a virtual space for a six-week “boot camp” that is open to all who wish to participate – regardless of background or profession.

This MOOC will help you:

- Clarify the economic importance of and key influences on developing, retaining and supporting a world-class teaching workforce

- Build a local team to support world-class teaching in your community

- Develop plans unique to your community

- Know where to apply for funds to implement your plan

The WCT MOOC-Ed is divided into two parts, each consisting of three one-week sessions, for a total of six weeks. The two parts cover:

- Part I Who Are They? Characteristics and Economic Value of World-Class Teachers: Part I focuses on the importance of building a world-class teaching workforce for our state’s future competitiveness and strategies to recruiting, training, and supporting world-class teachers in every classroom in North Carolina.

- Part II: How Do We Get There? Building a World-Class Teaching Workforce: Part II focuses on creating community action plans to develop and support a world-class teaching workforce in North Carolina. The most promising action plans will receive monetary and other forms of implementation support.
