Learning-Focused Events

We help you create a culture of academic achievement. Our 2022 events are below, and more are getting added to the calendar, so check back soon

PROFESSIONAL LEARNING EVENTS OPEN TO ALL EDUCATORS

Learning-Focused brings educators together to learn how to transform their schools and classrooms through intentional and purposeful planning designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills they need to be successful both academically and beyond.

Studies continue to demonstrate a positive link between teacher professional development, teaching practices, and student outcomes. In fact, research has shown seven widely shared features of effective professional development. Learning-Focused embraces each feature as a core tenant of our professional development. We believe that professional development is meant to help educators do what they do best, even better.

Our professional development guides educators to design school and classroom cultures that focus on rigorous standards-driven learning, engaging academic instruction, meet the needs of all learners, and achieve remarkable success.
