ultrashort laser pulses with materials, and nanophotonics. In addition to his work
in optical physics, Dr. Mazur is interested in education, science policy, outreach,
and the public perception of science. Dr. Mazur devotes part of his research
group’s effort to education research and finding verifiable ways to improve science
education. In 1990 he began developing Peer Instruction a method for teaching
large lecture classes interactively. Dr. Mazur’s teaching method has developed a
large following, both nationally and internationally, and has been adopted across
many science disciplines. In 2011 he founded Learning Catalytics, a company
that uses data analytics to improve learning in the classroom. Mazur is Chief

Dr. Mariale Hardiman
Brain-Targeted Teaching
Joining the Johns Hopkins School of Education in 2006, Dr. Mariale Hardiman
collaborated with Baltimore City Public Schools to design and direct a
leadership academy to develop and enhance the skills of school leaders in
the district. She also co-founded and directs the Neuro-Education Initiative
(NEI), a cross-disciplinary program that brings to educators relevant research
from the brain sciences to inform teaching and learning. NEI activities include
regional conferences, national summits, a professional development series,
and a graduate certificate in Mind, Brain, and Teaching. Her research and
publications focus on enhancing educational practices through techniques
that foster innovation and creative problem-solving for all students. Current
research includes studying the effects of arts integration on long-term retention
of content and student engagement. Before joining Johns Hopkins School of
Education, Dr. Hardiman served in the Baltimore City Public Schools for more
than 30 years. As the principal of Roland Park Elementary/Middle School, she
led the school to its designation as a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence. Dr.
Hardiman earned her doctorate in Educational Leadership from Johns Hopkins
University with focus on Leadership for School Improvement in Urban Settings
and Special Education. She earned a masters degree in education from Loyola
University, Maryland with emphasis in Special Education and Developmental/
Remedial Reading, and a BA degree in French Literature. Hardiman presents
nationally and internationally on topics related to the intersection of research in
the neuro- and cognitive sciences with effective teaching strategies, including
meaningful integration of the arts. Presentations focus on the instructional
framework that she developed, The Brain-Targeted Teaching Model, described
in her latest book, Brain-Targeted Teaching for 21st Century Schools (Corwin
Press, 2012). For more information, see: http://education.jhu.edu/faculty/SOE_

YOUR SELECTIONS ARE LISTED ON YOUR NAME TAG
Session 1. Conversation with Higher Education Faculty
on Interactive Instruction
Dr. Nancy Akhavan will lead a lively conversation with a panel of collegiate educators who
have practiced Interactive or “Flipped Classroom” Instruction. Panelists include: Dr. Eric
Mazur, physics professor at Harvard University; Joseph Schultz, instructor in Radiologic
Technology at Fresno City College; and Dr. Melissa Golden, chemistry professor at Fresno
State. The panelists will engage in discussion in an active conversation pertinent to higher
educators and eliciting questions from the audience.

Joseph Schultz, Fresno City College
Dr. Melissa Golden, Fresno State
Facilitator: Dr. Nancy Akhavan, Fresno State
Audience: Higher Education Leaders
Session 2. The Flipped Classroom
This session will provide a quick overview of the flipped model and the pedagogy and
literature behind it. The majority of the session will focus on the technologies and tools that
teachers can use to flip their classrooms. The blended model as well as equitable access will
also be discussed. Specific web sites will be addressed and a handout with resources listed
provided. Session will be presented by Kevin Scritchfield - a 28-year classroom veteran who
has flipped his Geometry and Precalculus classes at Sierra High School and is an instructor
with the Continuing Education Department at Fresno Pacific University, having written a
course entitled, “The Flipped Classroom”.
Location: Holiday Inn Mt. Whitney Room
Co-Presenter(s): Kevin Scritchfield, Sierra Unified and Fresno Pacific University
Facilitator: Jennifer Owens, Fresno Pacific University
Audience: All education leaders
Session 3. Leadership Practices in a Learning with
Technology Initiative
Implementing significant change across a school district is not easy. This session will provide
leadership insights of one award-winning district’s experience implementing technology to
impact learning from the Board Room to the classroom. Superintendent Rich Merlo from
Corcoran Unified School District and his leadership team have focused on using technology
as an instructional tool in the district for over seven years. They will share their experiences in
the process starting with setting a vision, rationale and implementation from Board to teacher
(The Why), to using the SAMR Model and 21st Century Classroom (The What), and end with
a focus on Professional Development (Coaching) and Adult Learning Theory -- “Teaching
from the Inside Out” (The How). They will share practical insights and resources suitable for
educational leaders at all levels.
Session 4. Building Strong Birth-3rd Grade Programs:
Fresno County’s Groundbreaking Initiative
The Birth-to-Third Grade Challenge is intended to create a model of intentional, integrated,
and sustained systems of support for families and a continuum of teaching and learning from
birth through the third grade. The challenge will result in significant improvements in reading
proficiency, and other educational and health indicators for children by the time they reach
the third grade. In 2013-14, select school districts will participate in a learning community to
engage in the design of best practices, peer learning, and technical assistance provided by
content experts to establish a coordinated system of learning and support for birth-to-third
grade students and families to achieve the third grade reading proficiency outcome. Session 5. Common Core Mathematics: Elementary
Tulare County Office of Education (TCOE) has been a leader across the State in the
implementation of California’s Common Core. In this session, TCOE elementary mathematics
leaders will discuss how they are working with district leaders, school principals and teachers
to guide them in the transition to more cognitively challenging and relevant common core
classrooms. The following topics will be addressed relative to CaCCSS Mathematics:
instructional shifts, curriculum design, instructional techniques, assessment and professional
development.
Session 6. Shared Literacy
Do you know how to use historical fiction in the classroom to improve student learning and
engagement? Panel members from elementary, middle and high school will present the path
taken to improve student literacy through the use of history/social science.
Session 7. Flipped Out for STEM/Math: Secondary
Come to this session to hear about how the ‘Flipped Classroom’ is successfully being used
with secondary students in both math and science. 21st Century teaching involves adapting
instruction to be accessible to students both at school and outside of the building. Hear from
classroom teachers that are implementing video lessons that occur prior to the in-class lesson
and how it is changing the classroom structure.
Session 8. Move from Thinking to Creating
Combining the latest technology with “best practice” teaching methods, participants will
examine technology mastery skills in project-based learning. The focus will be on how
increased student learning can be accomplished with classroom management to assist
teachers in integrating technology in a project based environment.
