Unlocking Student Talent

Run time: 55:49

As education leaders, our mission is to ensure students build expertise. Yet many of us remain unaware of essential research into how expertise is truly developed. Guided by inaccurate folklore around “talent,” we unconsciously limit our students’ aspirations and fail to align our schools and classrooms for optimal growth.

Now for the good news: we can promote expertise systematically and consistently.

Join Dr. Gene Kerns—co-author of the new book Unlocking Student Talent—to learn how to ignite students’ true potential. Topics include:

  • Creating a culture of motivation across your district
  • Using deliberate practice to boost student achievement
  • Discovering the critical role of coaching in helping teachers teach and students learn
  • Understanding how Renaissance® solutions and best practices support the development of student expertise

Don’t miss this opportunity to discover how—with the right strategies and insights—you can unlock the talent in every student.
