ISL Conference calls for proposals

AUGUSTA, GA – Organizers for the popular annual Impacting Student learning Conference at Georgia Regents University are seeking proposals that reflect the best thinking and practices in education, informed by theory, research, and practice.

“Effective educators have many successful practices that they can share. The ISL Conference is a practical conference that empowers educators at all career stages to be more impactful.  Participants tell me they leave with practical strategies that they can implement on Monday to improve student learning,” said Dr. Judi Wilson, professor of education and conference coordinator.

The 2015 conference will provide more than 40 concurrent sessions presented by classroom teachers, school administrators, higher education professors, and graduate students that address issues relevant to effective teaching and learning at all levels and in all subject areas. Popular subject areas in past years have included classroom management, response-to-intervention, inclusion, co-teaching, differentiation, interviewing tips, and integrating technology into the classroom. This year, the conference has added a technology strand throughout the day. Lauren A. Eckman, 2013 Georgia Teacher of the Year, will give the keynote address.

Presenters should submit a session proposal by Dec. 19. Click here to view the conference call for proposals.

Conference registration is free to all GRU students and faculty in all school district employees in Burke, Columbia, Jefferson, Lincoln, McDuffie, and Richmond counties.

“We are excited about being able to partner with them to provide free professional development for their teachers,” Wilson said.

An optional lunch can be purchased for $7. Registration is $50 for non-GRU professors and non-Partner School Network teachers, and includes lunch. Registration is $25 for non-GRU students, and includes lunch. Click here to register for the conference.
