ASCD announced today the keynote speakers for the 69th ASCD Annual Conference and Exhibit Show, held in Los Angeles, Calif., March 15–17, 2014. The conference will showcase ideas and best-practice strategies that are driving student achievement and will unlock ways to boost teacher and leadership effectiveness. Attendees will choose from more than 350 sessions that will enable them to prepare our world's learners to be creative, critically minded, and compassionate citizens.
"Each year, ASCD holds our Annual Conference and Exhibit Show to bring together educators from around the globe to share, network, learn, and improve their practice in this must-attend educational event," said Dr. Gene Carter, CEO and Executive Director of ASCD. "This year's Annual Conference and Exhibit Show in sunny Los Angeles will be no exception, and we look forward to presenting educators with innovative solutions to promote the success of each child."
ASCD listened to feedback from attendees, and this year at the 2014 Annual Conference and Exhibit Show some popular sessions will be repeated, giving attendees more opportunities to customize their conference planning. In addition, the conference team added 45- and 60-minute sessions, so attendees have more choices for how to allot their time. Finally, sessions offerings have been extended, with sessions geared specifically toward superintendents and those in higher education, as well as a third general session.
