Pepperdine GSEP Hosts Better Together: California Teachers Summit At West Los Angeles Campus
California Teachers: Register Today for Unique Day of Learning
LOS ANGELES – June 12, 2016 – On July 29, the Pepperdine Graduate School of Education and Psychology will host the second annual Better Together: California Teachers Summit, a unique day of learning led by teachers, for teachers, at Pepperdine’s West Los Angeles Graduate Campus. California teachers are invited to attend as registration is open now at cateacherssummit.com.
The Better Together: California Teachers Summit will bring together teachers at nearly 40 locations across the state, including Pepperdine’s West Los Angeles Graduate Campus, to share ideas, network, and learn effective strategies for implementing the new California Standards in their classrooms. The program will feature keynote addresses by education leaders, TED-style EdTalks presented by local teachers, and EdCamp discussions around timely topics such as the California Standards in English/Language Arts and Math, and the Next Generation Science Standards. Teachers will walk away with access to new resources and concrete tools that are already working in classrooms across the state. The Association of Independent California Colleges and Universities (AICCU), the California State University (CSU), and New Teacher Center (NTC) have partnered to organize this gathering.
Last year, teachers described the summit as a powerful day of learning that made them proud of what they do, and reminded them of the important difference they make in the lives of their students. Teachers left the summit energized for the upcoming school year and prepared to take their teaching to the next level.
The summit is free to all California PreK-12 teachers, teacher candidates, school administrators, and other educators.
