The Learning Design Summit brings together forward-thinking teachers and school leaders from around the world in a beautiful setting to dive deeper into what professional development can and should look like in 2019.

At the Learning Design Summit, you will learn new ideas in education and have the time to apply them to your work as an educator — in your courses, classrooms, and schools.

What Past Participants Have Said

  • The high­ly inten­tion­al use of time through­out the week and my excel­lent coach and group were very ben­e­fi­cial to my work. The choice to have us focus our work on one con­crete take-home inno­va­tion in our ped­a­gogy was very use­ful as well. 2018 Learning Design Summit Participant
  • The advi­sories, coach­ing and abil­i­ty to sit and net­work with peo­ple was real­ly fan­tas­tic! The inde­pen­dent time was per­fect to plan and work on all the ideas I got from the work­shops and peo­ple I met. 2018 Learning Design Summit Participant
  • It is like sum­mer camp for teach­ers, in the best sense of that. I will say that I met inter­est­ing peo­ple, was inspired by great speak­ers, got my own work done for the fall, became excit­ed for school to be back in ses­sion, as well as ate and drank well! 2018 Learning Design Summit Participant
