Human Capital Leadership Summit

December 7-8, 2017
Sheraton Albuquerque Uptown | Albuquerque, NM

Director of Research | Gallup's Education Practice

ADDRESSING THE TEACHER SHORTAGE: Strategies for Human Capital Leaders
The national teacher shortage is real - fewer people are entering teacher preparation programs and fewer graduates of those programs are choosing to enter the classroom. Paradoxically, the national shortage of quality teachers is highly localized - some schools do a great job of attracting and retaining quality teachers. This session will review these findings and offer some strategies for how to address the teacher shortage by attracting, engaging, and retaining high-quality teachers.

The Human Capital Leadership Summit is designed for school leaders who are past their first three years of human capital management and who are looking for that next level of professional development in HR leadership. Sessions will be dedicated to helping participants grow professionally in their knowledge as well as personally in their leadership skills.

You're Doing It Wrong: How to Use Technology, Data, and Behavioral Interviewing to Hire Better Teachers, Faster - Part 3

Join us for a webinar on Nov 01, 2017 at 1:00 PM CDT

Register now! at https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/755384665762711810

Nick Montgomery, Chief Research Officer for TalentEd in Shawnee, KS will present.

If your school’s applicant evaluation processes rely on subjective measures — such as traditional interviews, resumes and cover letters — research suggests you may be losing the best candidates. This webinar is an overview of parts one and two in which we will review how to hire better teachers more efficiently, through the use of the right technology, targeted analytics, and the right interview techniques.

We will also discuss how one can combine data, analytic screening tools, and scientific interview techniques to screen and select high quality candidates as fast as possible, all while reducing time-to-hire.

This webinar is provided free for AASPA members and non-members and is sponsored by TalentEd. Contact us at 913-327-1222 or aaspa@aaspa.org with any questions.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
