Bryan Hassel, Public Impact’s co-president, will be presenting in two sessions at this year’s iNACOL symposium in Nashville. Join him today for “Making Blended Better” at 2:15 in room 206, where he, Cabarrus County teacher and former Opportunity Culture Fellow Scott Nolt (at right), and former principal Michelle Cline discuss what they’ve learned and where they’re going with the use of blended instruction. They’ll cover how innovative staffing, course design, and student engagement can make the most of blended and personalized learning–bringing the best to far more students.

On Wednesday, Bryan Hassel and Thomas Arnett, senior research fellow at the Christensen Institute, will lead a design workshop, “Leveraging Innovative Staffing Models to Maximize the Power of Personalized Learning,” from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. in room 106B. They’ll be discussing our recent joint project studying how a number of district, charter, and private schools are using non-traditional staffing and blended learning to achieve noteworthy results for their students.
