2023 Annual Conference
Evidence into action
Thank you for a great conference!
The 2023 Learning Forward Annual Conference was a thriving learning environment for the more than 3,300 educators who attended in December to connect, collaborate, and activate plans for implementing conference learnings into their work or practice. In addition to top-notch presentations, cutting-edge topics, and inspiring keynotes, this year’s event offered a storytelling booth encouraging educators to share how high-quality professional learning is helping them address challenges and how it is changing instruction and student learning.
Our roving photographers captured highlights of event and the collaborative and collegial strength of our community. Relive the memories and spot friends new and old as you browse our event photos.
