SIOUX CITY, IA (May 31, 2019)—Northwest AEA will hold the Collaborative Instruction Summer Symposium on June 17-18 in Sioux City. This conference is a combination of the former Northwest AEA Literacy Symposiums and the TICL conference held in June of each year. The conference has been reimagined and will be a great opportunity to connect with peers and experts who share similar commitments and challenges. Pre K-12 teachers, technology directors, teacher leaders, counselors, and administrators will all benefit from this conference. 

Rushton Hurley will be the keynote speaker. He is the founder and executive director of Next Vista for Learning, which houses a free library of videos by and for teachers and students at NextVista.org.

***May 31, 2019, UPDATE: 

Northwest AEA will host if we reach 100 participants. The final deadline for registrants to register is June 3rd by 4:30 pm. If we do not reach the conference registration minimum we will cancel for 2019 but hope to bring this collaborative symposium back even better and stronger for 2020. 

Let us know if you have any questions. In the meantime, please promote the conference to your teacher friends/colleagues/acquaintances/etc. It is much appreciated!
