Every year in Brazil, faculty from the Stanford University Graduate School of Education hold a seminar in conjunction with the Lemann Foundation, the Brazilian Ministry of Education, and Brazilian educators and entrepreneurs to discuss ways to improve public education in the country.

On August 8th 2017, the Lemann Center at Stanford University held its 6th Annual Lemann Center International Seminar on the campus of Fundação Armando Álvares Penteado in São Paulo.  The seminar explored the theme: Innovative Experiences in Science Teaching and Teacher Education.

Martin Carnoy and Paulo Blikstein, Professors and Directors from the Lemann Center at Stanford University, hosted the 6th Annual Lemann Center International Seminar Bryan Brown, Associate Dean for Student Affairs and Associate Professor of Education at Stanford University, delivered the much-anticipated keynote speech. Furthermore, another successful Programa de Especialização Docente (PED) Brazil was made possible thanks to work of the following individuals: Paula Louzano, Director of PED Brazil and Visiting Scholar Alumna of the Lemann Center; Rachel Lotan, Professor of Education, Emerita and former Director of the Stanford Teacher Education Program (STEP); and Pia Wong, Professor at California State University, Sacramento.  Also in attendance at the International Seminar were Lemann Fellows, graduate students, and invited teams from PED Brazil partner institutions.

Attendees gathered to partake in fruitful discussion about science teaching and teacher education.  In the morning, participants attended presentations about the innovation within teacher education in Brazil. These presentations were followed by a round table on advancing science learning in Brazil and throughout the world.

The focus of the afternoon was to better understand the PED Brazil experience. Attendees participated in lectures and group activities simulating a PED Brazil classroom. This was followed by Brazilian institutions explaining their implementation via poster presentations. The seminar culminated with the director of the program, Paula Louzano, mediating a round table to discuss the main innovative features of this PED Brazil.
