Mar 10 - Mar 11, 2022

Gaylord Texan, Dallas, TX

Registration is now open for the 21st annual NIET National Conference, which will be held on March 10-11, 2022, at the Gaylord Texan outside of Dallas.

The two-day event will include a variety of full-group and breakout sessions focused on our theme: Accelerating Educator Impact.

The 2022 National Conference website and agenda are available here.


About 1,200 K-12 and higher education educators from across the country will dig into strategies and takeaways they can use to accelerate their impact through:

  • Supporting diverse learners
  • Excellent instruction and student ownership
  • Effective use of instructional materials and curriculum
  • Creating positive school culture, character, and environment
  • Leadership and collaborative teams
  • Strengthening support for new and aspiring teachers

NIET's national conference is always a time of collaboration and deep reflection, as well as a time to celebrate growth and learning, and these aspects will be especially true this year as we return to the in-person modality. 


When: Thursday, March 10 to Friday, March 11 [The conference will open at 8:30 a.m. CT on Thursday and conclude with a boxed lunch and optional afternoon team work time until 3 p.m. CT on Friday.]
