Hiring Top Talent: How To Recruit and Hire Great Teachers

Schools invest time and money every year to attract and hire new faculty members. But ad hoc internal processes and limited proactive recruitment often limit schools’ ability to hire effectively. Researchers from EAB, an educational consulting firm, will explore best practices for creating a standard, evidence-based hiring process that focuses on identifying and assessing the criteria that matter most. Hear about lessons and tactics to help schools hire top talent that fits the culture of the school.

Learning Objective: Participants will learn best practices for creating a standard, evidence-based faculty hiring process and how to apply those lessons to hiring across the school.
