Alexandria, VA (04/10/2013)—ASCD, the global leader in providing programs, products, and services that empower educators to support the success of each learner, will host its Conference on Teaching Excellence June 28–30, 2013, in National Harbor, Md. The conference—which will take place over two and a half days—will focus on the topic of teaching excellence and will have more than 150 sessions tailored for educators of all levels, including teachers, teacher leaders, principals, and district supervisors.
"It's more important than ever before to invest in our educators and the power of great instruction," said ASCD Executive Director and CEO Dr. Gene R. Carter. "ASCD's 2013 Conference on Teaching Excellence will provide attendees with the necessary tools for taking effective resources, strategies, and best practices and implementing them in their own schools and districts."
This year's session highlights from the Conference on Teaching Excellence will include the following:
In addition to the full lineup of conference sessions, ASCD will host two pre-conference institutes on June 27, 2013. The first pre-conference institute, led by Robert Marzano, will focus on the theme of "Effective Supervision: Supporting the Art and Science of Teaching." Attendees will explore current trends in teacher evaluation and learn best practices for collecting observational information about teachers' pedagogical skills and measuring student growth.
The second pre-conference institute, "Flipped Professional Development: Improving Teacher Effectiveness Using 21st Century Tools," will be led by education expert and ASCD author Heidi Hayes Jacobs and education consultant Marie Alcock. This institute will provide attendees with new tools, approaches, and cost-effective plans for integrating digital tools, multimedia, and online communities into professional development practices.
