  • "Academic Diversity"
    August 6-8, 2018 on the campus of Virginia Episcopal School.  Explore the best practices of teaching and learning. This particular opportunity will focus on Academic Diversity, otherwise known as “differentiation”.  Geared more toward educators of grades 9-12, many of these principles are easily applicable to earlier levels.  We are happy to announce that internationally renowned author and  instructor, Dr. Carol Tomlinson, will be facilitating many of the sessions during this three-day professional growth event.
