Join us!

NEASC Annual Conference and Showcase

December 5-6, 2019
Burlington, MA, USA

#NEASC2019 #designed4learning

With a new name, new location, and revised format for our 134th annual event, we are excited to bring you fresh and relevant content guided by this year's theme, Designed for Learning. Inspired by the growing interest in and adoption of Design Thinking within the K-12 education community, this event will be a two-day exploration of how a design-based approach can increase engagement, enhance collaboration, and unlock meaningful solutions for improvement and problem-solving in your classroom, your school, and your learning community. 

The conference will be a unique opportunity to hear not only from the visionaries behind Design Thinking, but also from colleagues who have immersed themselves in the design process to reboot their mindsets and creatively address challenges in their schools. Their real-world stories will be showcased alongside prominent speakers from the design and education worlds. We look forward to seeing you in December!
