Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development – Revolutionising the Way We Teach and Learn


Education stands at a historic point in time where the best of what we know about effective teaching is merging with exciting potentials offered by new technologies, tools, and learning designs. The result is a revolutionary new direction for educational practice.

Choose from more than 140 sessions and spend two and a half days exploring how educators around the world are revolutionising learning. Whether your role is in the classroom or systemwide, this is your chance to learn about effective new programs and practices and join with colleagues in advancing a positive agenda for the future.

The Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD) will hold a summer conference in St. Louis, United States, from July 1-3, 2012, on Revolutionising the Way We Teach and Learn. Drawing from 150,000 members and an international network of schools, the leading experts on research-based, classroom-proven approaches will lead the conference. They will provide in-depth analyses on 11 topics, including: achieving equity in education, effective teacher supervision and professional development, teaching and technology, and bullying prevention.
