At LLI Southwest, faculty leaders want to empower their colleagues through hands-on understanding of the learning process. Visible learning is seeing engaged students and teachers interacting in real time and imagining transformation in their own school.
Making learning visible means not only talking about best strategies, but actually witnessing the practice together. Come see a true PD experience where students and professionals can learn together.
What is LLI Southwest
LLI Southwest is a two-day professional development conference that is designed for teachers to share their practical classroom skills with other teachers in the southwest region. Featuring fishbowl classrooms, active learning sessions, and collaborative events, LLI Southwest is the new generation of authentic, effective teacher training.
Why LLI Southwest?
Observable classroom practices with expert teachers
LLI Southwest was one of the first teacher conferences to provide live classroom observation of innovative learning at work. This year, we'll have over 40 fishbowls at all age levels, focusing on content from math to science to Makerspaces. Simply the most authentic professional development possible at a conference.
Hands-on Learning for Teachers
Active learning sessions mean that we practice what we preach. Presenters are asked to limit the Powerpoint time and develop hands-on strategies for session attendees. The gives time to create plans and artifacts with an expert guide instead of leaving the heavy lifting for later. You are guaranteed to have three or four actionable items to use on day one.
Quality, Affordable Professional Development
LLI Southwest brings the quality of a national conference with the value that all schools can appreciate. Featuring hands-on professional development, breakfast and lunch for all attendees, access to top regional thought leaders, and membership in LLI's national network of educators, schools will discover what it really means to engage, empower, and transform.
