Aurora Institute Symposium

This conference is an annual gathering around K-12 competency-based, blended, and online learning. The event, run by one of NGLC’s founding partners, is held in the fall, typically October. Educators, ed leaders, experts, and researchers navigate through 200+ sessions. NGLC often organizes a session or two and hosts a reception. You will find many NGLC grantees in attendance and presenting, alongside other innovative educators and partners. A highlight is a student panel plenary, reminding us why next gen learning is so important. And we value the Aurora Institute's ongoing commitment to making equity an integral conversation throughout the event. Learn more.

SXSW EDU Conference & Festival

This annual event in Austin, Texas takes its cues from the iconic entertainment, culture, and technology festival it precedes each year. Held in March, attendees participate in a mix of the traditional sessions and workshops with more unique learning experiences like startup competitions, interactive exhibitions, film screenings, and more. SXSW EDU attracts educators as well as people from business and industry, government and non-profits, even students. This diversity and the “Keep Austin Weird” vibe makes it easy to be creative and embrace the innovative spirit. It's the right kind of environment for next generation educators to learn, connect, and rejuvenate their own innovative spirit. Learn more.
