Feb. 20: David Conley lecture, “Getting Ready for College, Careers, and the Common Core”

I would very much recommend attending this program. David Conley is very innovative and will be an excellent speaker.

The CUNY Office of Academic Affairs, the Office of Policy Research, and the PhD Program in Urban Education cordially invite you to their annual lecture on higher education policy:


February 20, 6 PM

David Conley

(Professor of Educational Policy and Leadership, University of Oregon)

Getting Ready for College, Careers, and the Common Core

Dr. Conley will explore his “Four Keys to College and Career Readiness,” the big picture behind the Common Core State Standards, and how educators can cultivate deeper learning in their students. Conley’s comprehensive framework for college and career readiness can be used to gauge readiness for both students and schools; his Four Keys model (Key Cognitive Strategies, Key Content Knowledge, Key Learning Skills and Techniques, and Key Transition Knowledge and Skills), based on numerous research studies and work with effective secondary schools, specifies the teachable knowledge, skills, and abilities that students must have to be effective learners.

Conley serves on numerous technical and advisory panels, consults with educational agencies nationally and internationally, and is a frequent speaker at national and regional meetings of education professionals and policy makers. In addition to his positions at the University of Oregon, he is also the founder of the Educational Policy Improvement Center (EPIC) and is the author of several books and numerous articles on the topic of college and career readiness, including the recent Educational Leadership commentary, Rethinking the Notion of ‘Noncognitive.’

The lecture will be held from 6:00-7:00pm
