The Martin Institute Conference is an annual two-day professional development experience for educators from around the country.
Conference sessions and speakers represent local and national leaders in the field of education.
The goal of the conference is to not only create inspiration, dialogue, and engagement among educators but to delve deeply into teaching excellence and what that looks like in high-quality classrooms. The wide variety of attendees from public, private, and charter schools is a source of pride and impact for the institute as we seek to perforate barriers and mindsets about how we interact as professionals.
The conference sessions are interactive learning sessions where participants have to question, grapple, reflect, discuss, explore, and create around the topic being presented. Our model is active learning not passive “sit and get” listening.
Attendees choose from over 30 workshop sessions each day in learning blocks of 1 ½ hours long. Session topics typically include Common Core integration, literacy instruction, assessments, math instruction, differentiation, working with urban populations, fostering higher level thinking for all ages, customized learning, critical and creative thinking, teaching for understanding and developing excellence and grit in students.
The New Teacher Network supports new teachers beyond the typical new teacher orientation that most schools provide. Connecting teachers early in their careers to strong learning habits, reflective teaching practices, and other teachers sets new teachers up for greater success and satisfaction in their work.
Providing new teachers with outstanding professional development early in their career can help to curb the teacher turnover rate. The New Teacher Network offers support, collaboration, and a chance to openly discuss what’s happening in the classroom.
Designed and led by the Martin Institute for Teaching Excellence, the New Teacher Network is a series of seminars that supports teachers in designing and leading highly effective classrooms.
New Teacher Network seminars are held from 4:00pm to 6:30pm on the campus of Presbyterian Day School, home of the Martin Institute for Teaching Excellence.
Capacity for these afternoon seminars is 100 teachers.
A light dinner is provided.
