SCHEDULE & LOGISTICS

​No matter how experienced you are, everyone can learn. Often being isolating, and without exposure to a variety of points of view, we can miss new ideas and trends that can impact future results.  Conferences provide a great opportunity to network and collaborate with others while discovering innovative products and services necessary to uncover ideas and spark innovation.  So prepare and plan so you can get the most out of the time you spend here. 

KEYNOTE ANNOUNCEMENT

Additional information and announcement of the keynote speaker will be coming soon.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

"Thanks for the opportunity to speak at SLATE. I enjoyed the time, and had some very informative discussions with some of the folks I met there. It's a very good group. Thanks for doing everything you do to sustain it."

“I have been to a ton of conferences. We return to SLATE each year because it has had the greatest impact on changing teacher strategies towards more engaged learning experiences for students.”

"Thank you very much for great conference. I really gained new knowledge and met wonderful people. I am in my office in Lawrence, KS, remembering those two days. I am grateful for all your meticulous arrangement. See you next year."
