The annual Symposium is the field’s largest gathering of education innovators who are working in schools, districts, and statehouses to transform the future of teaching and learning in K-12 education.
The Aurora Institute Symposium offers an opportunity to draw on the collective wisdom and expertise of K-12 educators, practitioners, and school and district leaders around the globe who are building knowledge about next-generation learning models and honing practices that will usher in the future of learning.
Teachers, principals, coaches, superintendents, state policymakers, advocates, researchers, and students come each year to connect to community, to be inspired, and to be challenged. They come to learn and share practices that foster deep learning, real-world application of critical skills, and an orientation toward lifelong learning. The annual Symposium expresses a vision of a world where all people are empowered to attain the knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary to achieve success, contribute to their communities, and advance society. Together, we are working toward redefining what education is and what it can be.
Our collective efforts are disrupting inequitable K-12 education practices and supporting all youth to successfully face their futures. Join us for 3 days of active learning, critical examination of the most pressing issues in K-12 education, rigorous exploration of new learning models, dynamic investigations into how districts are managing and leading innovation, and full immersion into personalized, student-centered pedagogy. Leave enlightened and equipped to take action in your school community.
