"Proficiency-based education" is sweeping across Oregon.

How did they completely rewrite the curriculum? How was the administrative team altered? How were teacher roles redefined?

"Catching Up or Leading the Way – American Education in the Age of Globalization"

This is an image of resized zhao_yong Dr. Yong Zhao is a distinguished university professor who recently relocated from Michigan State University to the University of Oregon in Eugene. Author of the book Catching Up or Leading the Way, he has received rave reviews speaking to school board and administrator associations across the United States. Zhao will address some interesting and timely questions such as “are schools emphasizing the knowledge and skills that students need in a global society -- or are they actually undermining their strengths by overemphasizing high-stakes testing and standardization?" Born and raised in China, Zhao bases his observations on extensive research and experience as a student in China and as a parent of children attending school in the United States. His unique perspective leads him to conclude that “American education is at a crossroads” and “we need to change course” to maintain leadership in a rapidly changing world.

"Living in a Digital World without Digits"

This is an image of resized 150px-Mark_SpeckmanWillamette University football coach Mark Speckman has experienced considerable success in the elite and ultra-competitive world of football. As an athlete he rose from the bottom of his high school depth chart to collegiate All-American linebacker. As a coach he has won in high school and college, establishing himself as a mastermind of the “FLY” offense and garnering numerous Coach of the Year honors. Like many, Mark has encountered many obstacles in his path to success. Like few, Mark overcame them – despite being born without hands.

While Mark’s physical disability is evident, his message is about helping people recognize and overcome the “disabilities” in their own life. Whether it is poor communication skills, fear of failure or lack of organization, we all have weaknesses in our lives that require extra effort or creativity on our part to achieve success. Mark’s story is not about avoiding life’s twists and turns but rather about believing in the power of the human spirit and achieving our highest goals.

Mark’s inspiring and entertaining presentation will make you laugh and cry all while demonstrating that overcoming obstacles can be a state of mind.
