The Highlander Institute and the Christensen Institute are excited to partner for our 6th Annual Blended & Personalized Learning Conference on April 1, 2017. The goal of this convening is to share proven practices from the best classroom, school and district success stories across the country.

With a focus on sharing the most effective implementation examples, participants will hear from district, building, classroom and student leaders to understand the critical elements behind their blended and personalized learning success. Participants will have the chance to attend presentations, simulations, and workshops on topics such as:

  • Developing a Blueprint for Blended & Personalized Learning
  • Edtech Product Efficacy and Short Cycle Classroom Research
  • Project-Based, Competency-Based and other Personalized Learning Models
  • Blended and Personalized Professional Development Models
  • Hands-on Blended Learning Classroom Simulations

Between sessions, participants may visit our EdUnderground technology playground to explore the latest and greatest edtech tools under development for teachers, visit our hand-selected vendors for demonstrations and engage with presenters in intimate settings. All participants are invited to stay for a complimentary beer in the EdUnderground room from 3:30 - 5pm.

Currently, our conference program is under development. Please check our conference website regularly for updates at Participants are not required to register for specific sessions, but will have the chance to attend sessions of interest on the day of the event.

On Friday, March 31 from 8am - 4pm, the Highlander Institute will hold an invite-only conversation among conference presenters and local leaders in a smaller setting. Approximately 150 pre-conference participants will focus on implementation and explore models and strategies that have been critical to successful blended initiatives. With support from our featured presenters, pre-conference participants will work in both large and small groups to design solutions for unique and complex challenges.
