You’ll get top-to-bottom training on everything from the key elements of effective leadership to techniques for adopting the sound instructional strategies necessary for transforming student learning. You will have the opportunity to learn from and interact with some of the most influential educational thinkers in North America. This summit is a must for those looking to deepen the reach and impact of their leadership.
