Testimonials from 2015 conference evaluations:
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. —2015 participant
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 lerning 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. —2015 participant
