From their founding in 1943, the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD) has focused on one goal: supporting whole child education by supporting educators. Each year, ASCD hosts an education conference, bringing together thousands of educators to learn, collaborate, and develop as leaders. This year, the ASCD Empower 19 conference takes place March 16-18, 2019, in Chicago, Illinois.
A Robust Conference Empowering Teachers
ASCD has been at the forefront of education for more than 75 years, helping to shape the American educational experience in ways that benefit all students. As the employment landscape has radically changed over the past few decades, education has also had to change in order to prepare students. ASCD brings together educators from around the world to create the environment of learning and leadership that students need.
The annual ASCD education conference is one of the oldest and largest of its kind. Three days of pre-conference institutes and three days of conference sessions mean that attendees can choose from a vast selection of topics.
Forbes magazine recently named Empower 19 one of the five most innovative conferences for educators to attend in 2019.
During the three days leading up to ASCD Empower 19, pre-conference institutes offer an in-depth examination of topics relevant to today’s educators. These institutes allow attendees to experience immersive learning on a single topic, including leadership, school culture, and curriculum development. Additional, separate events during this time period include school site visits, museum tours, and a global learning summit.
Pre-conference sessions are separate from the ASCD Empower 19 conference and require separate registration. Pricing for pre-conference activities can be found here. Separate events pricing can be found here.
