The Innovation in Teaching Conference highlights innovative teaching practices among educators. During this one-day conference, we ask you to share and take away ideas that address the "what's next" pushing us to strive for excellence in education.
Learn new and evolving educational practices across diverse settings. We encourage our presenters think outside the box, and as a result these presentations push the envelope of what's possible in education.
Each session packs information and tools into "bundles" of four 10-minute presentations, maximizing your exposure to new teaching practices. Our schedule also allows you to network with other innovative educators. You will leave feeling energized with new ideas to share with your colleagues, and new connections to continue to drive your educational innovations.
