Developing the session

Adult learners usually prefer to engage in self-directed learning, and that philosophy drives the SLI approach to conference programming. As you develop your session, keep in mind the following questions:

  • How much is interactive?
  • Will participants leave with a practical plan?
  • Will participants leave with an understanding of budget and personnel cost?
  • Will participants understand the overall impact to either district operations or student outcomes?

Session categories

These leading-edge tracks set a new standard for research and solutions that will help us create a dynamic program related to improving student achievement.
