Where has the field of human development been? Where is it now? Where is it going? Where should it go? Panelists will reflect on the ideas that have been central to their respective areas of the field — including neuroscience, media and technology, and adolescent development — and how ideas have evolved. Speakers will also share their concerns about the future of human development as well as their hopes for how the field might make greater contributions to both our understanding of child and adult development and our efforts to improve education.

About the Future of Education series:
The Future of Education is HGSE’s Centennial discussion series, meant to explore less-visible ideas and solutions, share new knowledge, and foster constructive conversation about the most important issues in education. Throughout 2020, these convenings will dig deep into critical topics and big-picture ideas, with scholars, practitioners, and thought leaders from across and beyond the education sector. #HGSE100

Since its founding in 1920, the Harvard Graduate School of Education has been training leaders to transform education in the United States and around the globe. Today, our faculty, students, and alumni are studying and solving the most critical challenges facing education: student assessment, the achievement gap, urban education, and teacher shortages, to name just a few. Our work is shaping how people teach, learn, and lead in schools and colleges as well as in after-school programs, high-tech companies, and international organizations. The HGSE community is pushing the frontiers of education, and the effects of our entrepreneurship are improving the world.
