Annual Conference update

By Learning Forward
August 2020
Vol. 41, No. 4

Learning Forward will host a virtual conference Dec. 6-8, bringing educators together for shared learning and powerful networking.

After consultation with health officials, educators, and long-standing conference vendors, we’ve decided that the planned face-to-face gathering in Chicago is not feasible. Data from our stakeholders also informed this decision, with 74% of more than 1,000 respondents indicating their employers wouldn’t support travel to such a face-to-face convening.

The theme of this year’s event is Innovate for Impact. We’ll address questions such as how to ensure all students have equitable access to high-quality teaching and how professional learning can solve the challenges we face in the year ahead.

We’ll highlight leading voices in professional learning from all levels — policy, system, school, and classroom — and connect our community of peers to share solutions and inspiration.

Look for more information about this opportunity on our website and in your email. Those of you who have already registered may apply your registration to the virtual conference. We will reach out to registered participants shortly with more details.
