Join us at F&M for "The Idea of Student 'Success' is Tired and Broken. Let's Fix It," with Jim Shelton, the president for education at the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative
Tuesday, Nov. 28, at F&M
5 p.m. in Bonchek Lecture Hall 

For too long, the definition of "success" has limited students and educators, and what they can achieve together. Jim Shelton, president for education at the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, will speak about how such narrow definitions have placed artificial and unnecessary boundaries on student learning and educators' working lives. He will offer a new and optimistic vision of what's possible outside those boundaries. It's a vision that embraces a broad view not just of academic learning, but also of human development, which includes social, emotional and cognitive development, as well as physical and mental health. Shelton will focus on how putting students at the center of their learning and development expands beyond academic engagement to support these other critical domains for learning and success. He also will discuss how such profound shifts require innovations to leverage the research on how students learn and develop, and ensure practice matches what we know about how to best support them on their path toward success.
