The top reasons to attend a conference:
- Multiple sessions - Attending day-long PD sessions is important, but a full day on one topic can be overwhelming and tiring. A 3-day conference provides sessions over a longer time period, allowing attendees to have time off between sessions to reflect on the information. Furthermore, a wider range of topics provides attendees choice that fits their needs. Multiple presentations on the same topic also allow for different perspectives to consider. I love taking bits and pieces from each presentation to build my personal ideal that best fits my students and classroom.
