2018 Conference Recap
All learners, many perspectives, one community
Thank you to everyone who participated in our 2018 Annual Conference!
The 2018 Annual Conference offered education leaders and policymakers the connections, tools, learning opportunities, and strategies they need to understand and implement effective professional learning in their classrooms, schools, and districts.
The theme for the 2018 Learning Forward Annual Conference was All learners, many perspectives, one community. Many sessions focused on SEL and equity as education leaders and policymakers shared their expertise on creating and sustaining excellent teaching and learning every day. The conference program offered opportunities to make connections, share and learn about tools, and strategies to understand and implement effective professional learning in classrooms, schools, and districts. The Standards for Professional Learning came to life through sessions that highlight successes and challenges.
