2021 Summit

An Expanded Learning and Networking Experience

In just seven years, the Summit on Improvement in Education has grown from 400 attendees at the inaugural conference in 2014 to more than 2,000 registered attendees in 2020. While the Summit community continues to grow in size, it has also grown in thought and practice by developing into a diverse and vibrant learning community of educational professionals.

The 2021 Summit will be a virtual event. While we are taking this direction due to the pandemic, we also see it as an opportunity to offer expanded and innovative learning and networking opportunities.

2021 virtual Summit

To start, the 2021 Summit will span two weeks. The first week, April 19–23, will be focused on pre-recorded sessions and posters that participants can view on demand. Pre-conference courses will be offered as standalone sessions on Sunday, April 25, and the live Summit—expanded this year with an extra day—will run Monday, April 26 through Wednesday, April 28.
