We’ve all been eager for months to be able to be together to learn, talk, and grow collegially. Come join your colleagues at the Richmond Marriott on Friday, November 19 and Saturday, November 20 for this year’s Instruction and Professional Development conference, called “Rebuilding Schools: Addressing Unfinished Learning.”
At the IPD Conference, you’ll be offered a timely and immediately applicable lineup of training sessions, including workshops on trauma-specific practices, teacher evaluation, culturally responsive teaching, collective bargaining, ESP professional issues, and more.
You’ll also hear from keynote speaker Eric Carbaugh, a professor of middle, secondary, and mathematics education at James Madison University. Dr. Carbaugh has worked with educators at over 100 schools and districts in areas of curriculum, instruction, and assessment and is the co-author, most recently, of Designing Authentic Performance Tasks and Projects: Tools for Meaningful Learning and Assessment.
In-person registration is now closed. You can add your name to the waitlist or register to attend virtually here.

“Like most conferences sponsored by VEA, I’ve come back inspired. There’s so much networking going on, and it gives me ideas of what I can take back into my local to make a difference. You never know what’s going to happen at IPD Conference. You’ve got to be there to see it!”
