Education conferences are a great way to learn tips and tricks for your teaching, find out more about new instructional products, and make connections with other innovative educators. They’re also a fantastic place to get those professional development hours you might be short on! These days, many conferences are either partially or fully virtual, and/or provide access to recordings of the sessions for a period of time afterwards. This makes attending one easier than ever before.
