Educators Program

Sessions and sharing that augment the quality of curricula, improve student learning, and inspire others to adopt the life-long pursuit of advancing education, technology, and culture. Educators Program offerings are formal (papers, panels, workshops, QuickTakes, and forums) and informal opportunities to reinforce the teaching-learning community's inspiration and commitment.
