Jonathan Haber has been a company founder and CEO, an executive and Director at publicly traded, privately held, and non-profit organizations working at the intersection of education, employment, and assessment. He is author of multiple books, including the best-selling Critical Thinking, part of the MIT Press Essential Knowledge series. His unique One Year BA research project on massive open online courses (MOOCs) was featured in The New York Times, the Chronicle of Higher Education and other publications.
His work in education has included developing the Internet and Computing Core Certification (IC³) used for over fifteen years to teach and certify student digital literacy skills around the world. As employee number three at the Woodrow Wilson Graduate School of Teaching and Learning, he helped get a new innovative graduate education program launched and accredited in just two years.
Most recently, he has been working as a consultant for for-profit and non-profit educational organizations in areas such as academic standards, innovative online course development, and COVID-response teacher preparation.
Jonathan believes the key to educational equity is to help every student develop critical-thinking skills that can be mastered by learners of any age or background. His books, curricula, as well as the high-leverage critical-thinking teaching practices he developed for educators are all focused on a single mission: to make every student a critical thinker, ready to thrive in the twenty-first century.
