Not only can attendees collaborate with one another, but they can get up close with internationally recognized thought leaders and really deepen their knowledge of critical instructional strategies in a way that’s pretty rare.

Learning Sciences International’s annual conference for educators has sold out every year, and Building Expertise 2016: Charting the Future is no exception. More than a month before the event kicks off, conference organizers announce that they are maintaining a wait list, but that all seats have been reserved.
The three-day event, co-hosted by widely acclaimed researcher Dr. Robert J. Marzano, takes place June 15–17, 2016 at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. Along with Dr. Marzano, keynote speakers include formative assessment expert Dr. Dylan Wiliam and educational neuroscience authority Dr. David Sousa.
Attendees from around the world will take part in dozens of sessions and practical workshops focused on “charting the future” of the full spectrum of educational topics, from educational technology and transformational leadership to minute-to-minute feedback, rigorous student-centered classrooms, and building a collaborative school culture.
“Building Expertise is always very hands-on,” says Michael D. Toth, Learning Sciences CEO. “There’s just an incredible amount of energy. Not only can attendees collaborate with one another, but they can get up close with internationally recognized thought leaders and really deepen their knowledge of critical instructional strategies in a way that’s pretty rare.”
Learning Sciences will also introduce the SOAR School-Year Theme Kit, based on Toth’s soon-to-be-released book, Who Moved My Standards? Joyful Teaching in an Age of Change: A Soaring Tale. The kit was designed to help schools start the new year with an inspiring theme that connects students, teachers, administrators, and parents, motivating all to embrace the instructional changes that lead to academic success. Attendees will have opportunities to obtain signed copies of this book and many others.
