Learning Forward Annual Conference

Evidence into action

DC/National Harbor
Dec 3—6, 2023

2023 theme: Evidence into action
Evidence into action speaks to the importance of evidence-based practices and how our conference bridges research and implementation to improve results for each student. In 2022, we explored what it would take to reimagine education after all that we learned from the pandemic. This year we look at how we apply what we have learned to best practices in classrooms, teams, buildings, systems, and regions.
