2021 is the year for transformation
Learning Forward’s 2021 Annual Conference, December 5-7, will be exclusively online.
We have doubled the number of preconference and concurrent sessions this year, bringing you 20 preconference and 80 concurrent sessions for even more of the great content that you have come to expect from Learning Forward.
We are pleased that we can find a safe and effective alternative that will allow us to continue our important work on behalf of educators and students everywhere. We look forward to seeing you online!
Learning Forward’s program team
More than 100 sessions
Enjoy more than 100 sessions, brought to you by top experts including Thomas Guskey, Marcia Tate, Michael Fullan, Zaretta Hammond, Nancy Frey, Doug Fisher, Joellen Killion, Jim Knight, and many more!
These sessions move beyond sit-and-get listening to offer collaborative opportunities to:
- Network with other educators who are experiencing similar challenges;
- Stay on top of best practices from leaders in the field;
- See first-hand the kinds of dynamic, interactive learning experiences that change educator practice at all levels.
The Transformation Toolkit is the newest version of the Conference Action Toolkit, updated and renamed to reflect the 2021's theme of Transformation. This set of resources is specifically designed for individuals and teams to organize and make sense of everything learned at a conference--from keynote speakers, session presenters, other educators, and vendors--and provides a means for taking actionable steps.
Why we chose transformation as our theme for 2021
Professional learning for educators encompasses numerous roles, challenges, topics, and strategies. Our conference is known for a large selection of sessions and presenters to meet this variety of needs. With so many different topics and learning goals, one through-line that we want to recognize this year is transformation.
The learning at our conference shifts your perspectives, powers up your expertise, transforms your practice, and ultimately improves the broader results of your work. This year especially, the theme of transformation parallels our shared experiences as we respond to the immediate needs of educators and students during challenging times.
Learning Forward is not waiting for transformation to happen. We are charging into 2021 with intentionality and determination. Join our 2021 Annual Conference and experience for yourself how high-quality professional learning can transform practice and student results.
