We know that many of you are assessing appropriate preparations for and responses to COVID-19 in your local contexts. Like you, Learning Forward is concerned first and foremost about the safety and health of our colleagues, educators, students, and communities.
Ensuring students have equitable access to high-quality learning remains as important as ever. We’re keeping this critical focus in mind as we plan our events, including our Annual Conference, currently scheduled for December 5-9, 2020, in Chicago. We know that circumstances around COVID-19 are changing rapidly, so we will monitor developments on a daily basis. We are consulting with local, state, and national health officials and our event partners to inform our plans moving forward. We will keep you informed about any changes.
THE learning conference
Education leaders and policy makers will gather to share professional learning expertise focused on creating and sustaining equity and excellence in teaching and learning every day.
Education leaders at all levels – policy, system, school, and classroom – will lead like-minded colleagues through the tools and strategies they need to understand and implement effective professional learning in their classrooms, schools, and districts.
Make connections and take home tools and strategies to understand and implement effective professional learning in classrooms, schools, and districts.
This year’s Annual Conference theme is Innovate for impact, addressing questions such as:
What innovative solutions do education leaders need to know about for professional learning policies, systems, and practices?
How can professional learning be leveraged to achieve school improvement?
How can we measure the impact of professional learning so that you can ensure your investments are leading to equity and excellence for all students?
