What Really Works!

The Center for Teaching & Learning’s biennial What Really Works conference focuses on practical strategies for improving teaching and learning while supporting our educational community and students. While research and theory certainly inform our practices, this conference is about providing participants with concrete tools, strategies, and techniques to take back with them to their districts, schools, and classrooms. Our presenters are local and national experts in their fields and we provide sessions perfect for novice & veteran teachers, counselors, special service providers, administrators, and even parents! This conference is for YOU!

This year’s What Really Works in Education 2019 conference is focused on Universal Design for Learning (UDL). Our keynote speakers most certainly know what really works with learners! Rebecca Mieliwocki was the 2012 National Teacher of the Year, Katie Novak is an international speaker and author about UDL, and Bradley Upshaw was recently inducted into the National Teachers Hall of Fame! In addition to hearing from them and a panel of local teachers of the year, each attendee will be able to attend sessions taught by the chapter authors of the 2019 book “What Really Works with Universal Design for Learning.” They will also get their very own hot-off-the-presses copy of the book for free, courtesy of the CSUN Center for Teaching and Learning. Register here and get ready for a great day!
