As schools close their doors because of the coronavirus pandemic, we are also in the middle of the teacher hiring period. As every school leader knows, hiring decisions are crucial: the right new hire can make a huge positive difference. (And getting it wrong can really hurt.) In this context, many of us are wondering: how can we hire well without meeting candidates in person? It can be done - and done well. In this session, we'll dig into how an approach of structured hiring can help you improve your results when hiring remotely, whether you're interviewing over Zoom for the first time or the thousandth.
