Blended and personalized learning practices are often in flux in classrooms, schools, and districts. Practitioners aren’t just trying to learn the latest from peers, but to share and develop the tactics that can make learning more student-centered and equitable.

Enter our annual Blended and Personalized Learning Conference in Providence, Rhode Island. This year’s conference offers the opportunity for educators, leaders, and innovators around the country to convene for three days of sharing, networking, and learning—to walk away with blended-learning strategies that are both inspiring and replicable.

The Highlander Institute, the Christensen Institute, and The Learning Accelerator have recruited over 50 practitioners to showcase the best classroom, school, and district practices from across the nation at the BPLC18, from Thursday, April 5 to Saturday, April 7. Our conference program includes three strands of information—one for district leaders, one for principals, and one for classroom teachers.

If you missed last year’s event, we summarized the most impactful conversations in a report, From maverick to mainstream: Takeaways from the 2017 Blended and Personalized Learning Conference. Among the trending topics from expert practitioners at the conference were:

  • Modifying models to foster relationships and collaboration

  • Steps to bolster student agency
