The Families Learning Conference is the premier event focused on innovative strategies and practices in family literacy and learning, two-generation education solutions, and parent and family engagement. Attending the conference will equip you with tools and strategies to use right away with the students, families, and communities you serve.
WHY THE FAMILIES LEARNING CONFERENCE?
Variety of professional development content presented by country’s top experts: Each day’s schedule is thoughtfully assembled with sessions in early childhood education, adult education, English learners, American Indian education, two-generation programming, library programming, policy, and research.
Unique focus on engaging all members of the family: The event organizer, National Center for Families Learning, recognizes that in order to break the cycle of poverty, all members of the family must be engaged in academic achievement. The two-generation focus during the Families Learning Conference equips attendees with education solutions to issues commonly encountered in educators’ work with underserved families, practical ideas that you can take back and use right away in the classroom, and ideas for community-based partnerships that enhance your work.
Networking events that inspire action: With all Conference sessions and events located at the Fort Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa, it’s easy and convenient to network and idea-share with education professionals throughout three days together. Networking events include the Banquet Celebration and Closing Brunch, both of which are included in the full registration price.
