10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

Good teaching is good teaching, and good teaching is backed by research. This three-part workshop will provide teachers with the research behind making learning meaningful and making it stick. Each session will include an expert morning presentation, followed by an afternoon workshop session. With the support of a cohort of teachers, translate the research into your classroom virtual or in person. Consider recommendations to increase engagement, assess understanding, and provide meaningful feedback in the context of your unique classroom. Make small adjustments to your current curriculum and have a big impact on your students’ learning.

Presentation Topics Include:

  • Engagement, Choice, and Relationship Building Across Learning Platforms
  • Continuous Growth in Blended Learning Classrooms: Meaningful Feedback and Assessments
  • Making Learning Sticky: Retrieval Practices in an Blended Classroom


Following a 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. morning instructional session each day, participants will utilize an afternoon time from 1:30 - 3:00 p.m. to connect and reflect with professional affinity groups.
