Martin Institute Summer Conference in Memphis,TN

Looking for a great professional development opportunity this summer? Want to visit the home of Elvis, BBQ and Rock & Roll? Well, you can combine both by attending the Martin Institute Summer Conference in Memphis, TN. The conference offers world-class professional development for teachers and administrators at public and private schools. Thanks to significant philanthropic support, the institute offers its outstanding conferences and programs at heavily subsidized rates.

Topics will include: higher-order thinking skills, assessment, evaluation, life skills, critical thinking, communication, collaboration, creativity, learning environments, and more. In addition to the many general education sessions, there will also be two special strands focusing on literacy and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math).

If you join us in Memphis this summer, I would be happy to help you find a great part of town to stay in and lots of great things to do, just post a comment.

  1. It's going to be a great event. Bill Nye the Science Guy and Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam are among the fantastic lineup of speakers.

    Thanks for sharing this, Carolyn.
