University Announcements


2012 Education Innovation Summit

The University Senate Council announces two open forums to give faculty the opportunity to voice thoughts on how the first and anticipated second round of budget cuts have or will impact the University’s academic mission. These forums will take place as follows:

The University of Kentucky College of Education invites you and your colleagues to attend the 2012 Education Innovation Summit, a professional gathering co-sponsored by AdvancED Kentucky focused on creative ideas, research and innovation to help transform P-12 and higher education in Kentucky, on November 29-30, 2012, at the Lexington Convention Center. This year’s theme is Local Focus…Global Impact, focusing on developing a deeper understanding of how to narrow the global achievement gap and better prepare our students for a highly competitive and challenging future.

Among the featured speakers is Tony Wagner. Dr. Wagner’s interactive presentation will draw from his two most recent books, Creating Innovators: The Making of Young People Who Will Change The World, and The Global Achievement Gap: Why Even Our Best Schools Don’t Teach the New Survival Skills Our Children Need—and What We Can Do About It. Global and local business and P-12 and higher education leaders will participate, including UK President Eli Capilouto; Gene Wilhoit, Executive Director, Council of Chief State School Officers; Ron Townsend, Executive Vice President of Battelle’s Global Laboratory Operations; Herb Miller, President, Columbia Gas; Bob Quick, President and CEO, Commerce Lexington, as well as over 100 school leaders from the Kentucky P20 Innovation Lab’s Next Generation Leadership Academy, who work daily to create innovative learning environments for all students to succeed in school, college and life.

The Summit will launch new and innovative programs and standards such as Kentucky STEMx Network and the Next Generation for Civic Readiness - The State Standards for Social Studies, as well as concluding the Summit with an Education IDEA Festival led by Kris Kimel, President, Kentucky Science and Technology Corporation, and other entrepreneurs.
