The LLI Difference

What is the LLI Difference?

A Mission of Student-Centered Learning

LLI believes that student-centered active learning is the most powerful way to prepare kids for the challenges of the future. By combining strong strategies that assess and develop knowledge and skills with an active teacher who guides students to deeper learning and curiosity, active learning provides both personalized and engaged classrooms.

Teachers Teaching Teachers

Our conferences focus excellent teachers you want to share their knowledge, creating an environment of collaboration and growth instead of "expert" presentations. LLI actively promotes developing regional professional learning networks of active teachers who want to grow and professionalize, thus creating dynamic classrooms throughout the country.

Active Learning Conference Sessions

LLI understands that teachers are learners too, and conference sessions reflect our mission of hands-on, collaborative learning. Instead of leaving a conference with ideas for future research, attendees are provided the time and guidance to develop artifacts they can implement in their classroom the next day. Our popular "fishbowl" class observation sessions give insight to how these strategies are used with real students in a real classroom.

Just Enough, Just in Time

Our sessions focus on the practical strategies and classroom activities that create an active learning environment, from using Google Docs for collaborative writing to paper crafts for Makerspaces. We love talking about the big ideas, but know that teachers want to fill their toolbox to ensure that learning occurs every day. You'll leave an LLI conference energized and excited about using your new skills as soon as you return to your classroom.
