In event evaluations, participants said the following about aspects of the day:

  • The keynote speaker was absolutely fascinating and inspiring, as well as frustrating to a degree. I wish the road ahead was smoother, but presenters such as the keynote speaker and organizations like AEC will likely make the journey more passable.

  • Having the chance to hear others talk about what we do and how we do it is inspiring and motivating.

  • All of the breakout sessions were extremely relevant to my everyday teaching life.
