2021 NIET Conference: Next Level Learning

2021 NIET Conference: Next Level Learning

NIET's 2021 Virtual National Conference, "Next Level Learning," will be March 3-5, 2021. The 2021 conference will be entirely virtual, given the continued challenges and uncertainty the COVID-19 pandemic presents, and NIET is designing our event with that reality in mind.

Registration is open through December 31, 2020.

The conference will offer participants the opportunity to participate in interactive sessions that are focused on the immediate needs teachers and leaders face and learn how to transform their instruction and leadership practices to reach the next level – no matter where they are now. NIET will provide educators with strategies and practical tools for virtual, in-person, and hybrid learning environments that they can use immediately, and specialists will also help educators to plan and strengthen long-term goals and practices.

NIET team members will facilitate learning through six key strands. Each strand consists of three sessions that build over the course of the conference through 90-minute workshops each day:

  • Strand 1: Maximizing Student Ownership of Learning – Whether In-Person or Virtual
  • Strand 2: Planning, Teaching, and Assessing with the Learner in Mind
  • Strand 3: Coaching as the Game-changer         
  • Strand 4: Connecting the Dots between Curriculum and Instruction
  • Strand 5: The Leader as the Lead Learner
  • Strand 6: Raising the Bar for Teacher Preparation 

The conference is open to all educators in both K-12 and higher education settings. There are two registration options for participants:
