Annual Conference 2015

Dec. 2-4, 2015, Williamsburg

When students engage in deeper learning, they gain content with a real-life purpose in mind. Instead of collecting bits of knowledge that will later be forgotten, students find the information they need in order to do what they want to do. The Hewlett Foundation includes the following in their definition of deeper learning: mastery of core academic content, critical thinking and problem solving, collaboration, effective communication, self-directed learning, and an academic mindset.

Join VASCD this December for a conference where we will explore the meaning of deeper learning in Virginia classrooms. You will hear form nationally renowned experts, including the Hewlett Foundation's own Marc Chun. You will network with other Virginia educators who are engaged in deeper learning, both their students' and their own. And you will return to your own school setting with new ideas, practices, resources and motivation.


Preconference: December 2 with Robyn Jackson, 9 am- 3 pm. Find out More!
