University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education: School Leadership Program Lunch & Learn
For all educators and school leaders from ADVIS Member Schools.
ADVIS invites all educators and school leaders from ADVIS member schools to join Steve Piltch and Leslie Levin of the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education to a Lunch & Learn session about Penn’s School Leadership Program.
LIMITED CAPACITY (only 40 seats)
By Registration Only.
The University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education (Penn GSE) is one of the nation’s premier education schools recognized for our strengths in research on urban education, policy, teaching and learning, the cultural contexts of education, language education, qualitative analysis, school leadership, developmental psychology, and quantitative and multimethod inquiry. At Penn GSE, we emphasize the interplay of theory, research, and practice in everything we do, believing that education research produces knowledge to inform practice, but also that research must be informed by the issues, needs, and concerns of practitioners.
Please join us for both lunch and an Information Session where we will discuss Penn’s graduate degree options, with particular emphasis on our School Leadership program.
This session will be led by Dr. Steve Piltch, Director of the School Leadership Program, and Leslie Levin, the Assistant Dean of Admissions & Financial Aid at Penn GSE. We look forward to speaking with you!
