Event Details

As interest grows in how children’s attitudes, skills and character contribute to their long-term success, the University of Chicago’s Consortium on Chicago School Research (CCSR) has recently synthesized what is known about these so-called “noncognitive” and cognitive factors—how children develop them, how they interact, at what developmental stages and in which settings.

Jenny Nagaoka, who served as lead author, will discuss the findings of this newly released report, funded by The Wallace Foundation, that provides evidence from child/youth development, cognitive science, psychology and learning theory that educators, out-of-school time practitioners, policymakers, and funders can use to ground their work in a firm understanding of important goals for human development. It also aims to help schools and expanded learning professionals think about how to design adult practices and youth experiences to reach those goals. Attendees will have the opportunity to discuss this report and ask questions of Ms. Nagaoka. After the formal presentation, attendees will be invited to continue their discussions and network with their peers during a brown bag and boxed lunch.
