2019 TAP Conference Overview

The National Institute for Excellence in Teaching will host its 19th Annual National TAP Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana, on Friday, March 22 - Saturday, March 23, 2019, at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans. 

The National TAP Conference is a dynamic gathering of practitioners, policymakers, federal, state and district administrators, organizations, foundations and businesses who play a key role in the implementation of TAP: The System for Teacher and Student Advancement and other educator effectiveness best practices across the country.

The conference is a powerful venue, both for those new to and experienced in NIET's initiatives, to learn more about them in practice and their posititions on the national pulse of advancing educator effectiveness.

Attendees experience a range of opportunities to gain a deeper understanding of NIET's systems of teacher leadership, professional development, educator evaluation and performance-based compensation. Networking with other participants allows them to strengthen their own implementations.

In addition to practitioner-focused breakout sessions, trainings and hands-on workshops, the TAP conference connects NIET's proven principles to critical issues facing America's K-12 system today.
