On March 31 – April 1, the Highlander Institute and the Christensen Institute are showcasing the best classroom, school, and district implementers from across the nation at our 2017 Blended & Personalized Learning Conference.
Unlike many conferences throughout the year, this event is a chance for educators and leaders to discuss blended learning as it exists today on the ground – both in terms of the day-to-day implementation in blended classrooms, and the strategies and systems that have effectively supported replication and scale across schools and districts. The conference will consist of two days:
The Pre-Conference Summit on March 31 is an invite-only conversation among leading district, school and classroom implementers from across the country. The focus is on sharing tactics – to understand the designs and strategies they attribute to their success, as well as obstacles they’ve encountered along the way.
The Conference on April 1 will feature those same implementers as presenters to a much wider audience of 900 educators and administrators. Audience members will have the opportunity to learn through blended and personalized approaches and to get a strategic and in-depth look at blended learning design and implementation.
We are currently looking for district, building and classroom leaders from across the country who can showcase excellent examples of blended and personalized learning. Apply to present at #BPLC17 by creating (or updating) a school or district profile on the Christensen Institute’s Blended Learning Universe between September 1 and November 4, 2016. Thanks to our generous conference sponsors, travel stipends are available to defray the cost of presenter travel expenses, and presenters are offered free access to both days of the conference.
There are a few paid registrations available for conference participants who are interested in attending the Pre-Conference Summit. You may indicate your interest as you register for the conference.
