Northridge event to educate on education

February 16, 2013 by  

The annual ‘What Really Works in Education’ conference at the California State University is scheduled to take place in about a month’s time in Northridge.

The program is presented by the Center for Teaching and Learning, and it will take place in the university’s Student Union. The conference will feature a number of vendors, presentations, guest speakers, and more.

The conference focuses on various strategies to aid in the implementation of teaching, as well as learning, while continuing to support students and the educational community. While theory and research are always an important aspect of teaching, the conference is designed to provide those in attendance with a number of concrete and proven techniques and tools that they can take back to the classroom and their community. Rebecca Mieliwocki, who was the recipient of the 2012 National Teacher of the Year award, will be the keynote speaker at the conference.

Conferences and other such informational events may use brochure printers or flyer printing to provide participants with essential information. Advertising for such activities may be done through poster printing or other kinds of advertising means in order to raise awareness about the event.

Registration for the conference is now available by visiting the California State University website. Discounts are available for CSUN students and groups of five or more. The conference fee is $90 and includes a light breakfast, as well as lunch. DTL Partnership Schools, CSUN students, and groups of five or more individuals are eligible for a discounted rate of $60 for the Friday, March 22 event.
