We are currently seeking proposals for concurrent and roundtable sessions on school-based professional learning for our 2013 Summer Conference. Next year’s Summer Conference will be in Minneapolis from July 21-24, 2013.
Submit your proposal to present a session and join your colleagues in exploring best practices in professional learning. Proposals are accepted online only. You are invited to submit a proposal to present at our conference through our proposal system at http://proposals.learningforward.org. The deadline is September 19, 2012.
Due to the focus of our Summer Conference, sessions should include a teacher leader. Teacher leadership is vital to student achievement and our conference is designed specifically for teacher leaders, mentors, coaches, and administrators. The strands and topics addressed at the conference can be found at the proposal system.
Join learning leader, Jim Knight, as he guides us through his “Partnership Approach for Dramatically Improving Instruction,” grounding the work of the Big Four: Content Planning, Instruction, Formative Assessment, and Community Building.
