Course Description

Whole-Teacher EclecticCon 2021 is a five-day, online professional development event where elementary teachers engage in training on a wide range of topics. Sessions are aimed to meet teachers where they are (literally & figuratively) to help them implement rigorous, innovative, and standards-based lessons. The session list reflects our belief that great teaching includes core academics, but there’s so much more involved than that. The training offered will benefit teachers in any grade-level assignment.

Throughout the conference, teachers gain access to video training as well as live panels and interviews with the presenters and special guests. Attendees will have multiple opportunities to interact with presenters to have their questions answered and to engage in discussion.
