James E. Ryan is one of the nation’s leading scholars of education law and policy as well as the dean of the Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE). Dean Ryan is also an award-winning teacher who served on the University of Virginia faculty since 1998. He strongly feels teachers of teachers should model methods for teachers. He advocates the use of projects, maker education, and the same type of methods professors want teacher candidates to use in the classrooms of the nation.

Jim Ryan also holds ideas about professional development. He feels teachers want to learn PD from other teachers and the quality must be higher raised. He feels even Harvard should be doing more in professional development courses offered at the institution. Dean Ryan urges teachers should never stop learning.
