One the great strengths of ASCD’s professional development resources is that educators can engage their peers either online or in-person. Online, you can connect through any of our social media accounts, ASCD EDge, our blog, as well as take PD Online or PD In Focus courses. In person, you can attend one of our many professional development events held each year around the country. Here is a look into the future with a few of our upcoming in-person professional development opportunities where you can join your fellow educators and hear directly from some of the leading minds in education.
Conference on Teaching Excellence
June 28–30, 2013, National Harbor, Md.
The new, higher value placed on teachers and teaching makes it more important than ever before to invest in the power of great instruction and learn how to leverage it in classrooms and school districts. This summer, you have the opportunity to make that investment at the ASCD conference devoted entirely to the topic of teaching excellence.
Conference on Educational Leadership
November 1–3, 2013, Las Vegas, Nev.
