Education Conversations

Watch our Facebook feed for Upcoming Education Conversations

AIER convenes both virtual and in-person conversations with local, regional and national educational thinkers, experts, and program representatives.  These conversations are more informal and ad-hoc and tend to focus on specific issues of innovative educational practice.

Example conversation topics:

  • What does real educational innovation look like?

  • How do we create schedules that meet student needs?

  • What is Project Based Learning anyway?

  • What is a "choice school?"
