What Great Educators Do Differently? The Best Edu Conference: Register Today!

I am a person strongly committed to improving my professional skills. That is the reason why I constantly search for useful workshops and trainings. Every year I take pleasure in participating in a number of interesting workshops and conferences. Besides these public events, I also enjoy receiving private coaching from top educators. My experience has shown that along with the huge amount of skills I gain during educational events, they also give me much confidence as a teacher.

I must admit I would not be the educator I am now without the many mentors who have shared their practice with me throughout these years.

what do great educators do differently

Learning from experts

As an educator, I constantly keep in touch with other teachers. Watching diligent teachers in action always helps me gain new effective teaching methods and skills, regardless of how many years of teaching experience they have. Every teacher always has some invaluable knowledge and your homework is to grasp as much as possible.    

This is natural since teaching is not a dogmatic science to study once and get satisfied with your knowledge throughout your life. Everything changes. We change, students change too. To keep up with the latest teaching methods, we need to be engaged in networking with teachers outside our school walls too. This is the reason why I constantly attend conferences and workshops around the country. I can’t describe how many incredible teaching practices I discover during each travel. My co-teachers also benefit from my travels since I always share my new experience with them.

I am determined not to miss any tremendous conference or workshop during this year as well. No wonder, I was so excited when three of my good friends and professional educators shared the big news with me. They are hosting a new conference in June. Last year I had the pleasure to attend another conference hosted by them, and I find it difficult to describe the whole bunch of knowledge and inspiration I received there. The inspiration I got during that conference carried me throughout this year. The idea to go even further and gain new experience from them makes me pretty excited. How can you resist attending a terrific seminar held by educational leaders who have inspired thousands of educators all over the world? I guess it is impossible especially when it will feature such interesting topics as educational technology, digital literacy, effective grading and assessment practices, libraries of the future and much more. Exciting!

Besides talented hosts, you will have the pleasure to hear interesting topics by presenters and keynote speakers who are all nationally recognized for their practice in education. The big news is that I am invited to make a speech during this amazing educational event. Being among these keynote speakers makes me really excited and obliges me to make my speech as engaging as possible.
