Issue(s): Aurora Institute Symposium

The Aurora Institute Symposium 2021 will be a virtual experience, due to ongoing health and safety considerations around travel and large events. The annual call for presentations was launched today and will remain open until 11:59 p.m. on March 26, 2021.

The event, previously known as the iNACOL Symposium, is the field’s largest gathering of education innovators working in schools, districts, and statehouses to transform the future of teaching and learning and create personalized, competency-based education pathways and student-centered, next-generation learning. It will run October 25-27, 2021.

The convening is a chance to draw on the collective wisdom and expertise of field leaders from around the globe who are building knowledge and honing practices that will usher in the future of learning.

The demand for education systems change is growing, and exponentially so in the wake of massive school closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the shift to anywhere, anytime learning models. To that end, we seek proposals that offer lessons from the leading edge of education transformation. Education innovators are invited to submit proposals about ensuring high-quality, powerful personalized learning experiences that are equity-driven and student-centered. All proposals should be founded on the belief that all students can learn at high levels on personalized pathways based on demonstrated mastery rather than seat-time.

Visit our proposal submission page to learn more. You can also download all the questions in the submission form to review ahead of time.
