Sarah Fine recently earned her doctorate from the Harvard Graduate School of Education, where she collaborated with Associate Professor Jal Mehta on a long-term ethnographic study of secondary schools that are striving to enact deeper learning for all of their students. Prior to starting her doctoral studies, she worked as a teacher, department chair, and instructional coach at an urban charter high school in the District of Columbia, and as a freelance education journalist. Her work has appeared in a diverse array of publications, including the Washington Post, Education Week, and academic journals such as the Harvard Educational Review. Her co-authored book, In Search of Deeper Learning: Inside the Effort to Remake the American High School is forthcoming from Harvard University Press in 2018.
Jal Mehta is an associate professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. His research explores the role of different forms of knowledge in tackling major social and political problems, particularly problems of human improvement. He has also written extensively on what it would take to improve American education, with a particular focus on the professionalization of teaching.
Jal is the author of The Allure of Order: High Hopes, Dashed Expectations and the Troubled Quest to Remake American Schooling (New York: Oxford University Press, 2013) and the co-editor of The Futures of School Reform (Cambridge: Harvard Education Press, 2012). He is currently working on two projects: In Search of Deeper Learning, a contemporary study of schools, systems, and nations that are seeking to produce ambitious instruction; and The Chastened Dream, a history of the effort to link social science with social policy to achieve social progress. He is co-editor of the Learning Deeply blog at Education Week, and in 2014 was the top-ranked junior faculty scholar in the Rick Hess Education Week rankings. He is also the winner of the Morningstar Teaching Award at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. He was recently awarded a Radcliffe Fellowship and will be on sabbatical for the 2016-17 academic year.

Part lounge, part studio, the Deep Dive Den (D3) invites attendees to learn from educational leaders. One of the goals of the deeper learning conference is to propel the deeper learning movement by connecting attendees to inspirational ideas and people. Den talks aim to be a conversational style talk where a pair of educational leaders interview one another about a topic that is of importance to their organization, the deeper learning movement or perhaps to the future of education. No slide decks no prepared talks–just conversations on what matters most.
