Panel Discussions


This year's conference is going to feature a series of panel discussions.  The panels will include some of Alabama's top educators discussing specific topics, asking questions of each other, and reacting to others' views and opinions.  As a member of the audience, you will have an opportunity to interact with the panelists by asking specific questions to improve your practice.  

The following topics will be a part of our panel discussions:

  • Teacher Leadership
  • Standards Based Grading
  • Advocacy
In the following weeks, we will introduce you to the panelists in each discussion.  You will be provided with their background and a brief description of their views on their topic.  That way, you will have time to prepare specific questions.  Our goal is that this time will unite us as educators, stir our thoughts to try new things, and improve the quality of our teaching practice.
