What people are saying…

Attendees to our conferences come away energized and able to implement ideas and best practices they learned right away. But don’t just take our word for it! Read below to see what actual attendees thought about the conference, and read more on our testimonials page.

Excellent Workshops and Speakers

Workshops and speakers were excellent - presenters were all knowledgeable and mostly very charismatic and compelling. The range of topics that relate to equity provide a wide spectrum of learning experiences - from the mind-changing, 30,000-foot view on issues of race, gender and society - to the nitty-gritty details of how to structure a classroom to accommodate a student with a particular disability.

Welcoming to First-Time Attendees

The entire conference was excellent! As a first-time attendee, I felt nothing like a first-time attendee! The NAPE team was very welcoming and eager to broaden my scope of knowledge! The workshops were well connected to the work I do and the work my institution focuses on! I am looking forward to April 2016!

Wonderful Like-Minded People

The conference, as always, was amazing. I was able to learn new information and techniques as well as meet wonderful like-minded people from across the country.
