2023 Conference Theme

Our lives have endured many changes the past few years. We’ve had to think “outside the box” for countless situations. Our students have been resilient through it all. They’ve encountered challenges, but are ready to begin a fresh, new chapter, embracing redesigned ways of learning! It’s our commitment as educators to help all students find what works best to help foster their learning. We must seek creative outlets to amplify their voices, and provide opportunities for choice.

To best connect to the 2023 conference theme, consider the following:

“In what ways are your students expressing voice and choice in and out of the classroom? How has it been modeled, fostered, and expressed?”

“How have you embraced changes to help the needs of your learners, or yourself?”

“How can one provide ample opportunities to spark creativity?”
