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.

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. Check out the Summit schedule for more details.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve all been called to address unexpected and unprepared for challenges. Now more than ever, we need to come together and exchange our experiences, concerns and solutions in the context of the current circumstances. With this in mind, the 2021 Summit has been designed to help you meet your ever-evolving challenges, deepen your improvement skills, gather new actionable strategies, and join in community with improvers and innovators from across the globe.
