April 18-20, 2017


The ERS National Conference is taking a new, fresh approach!

The conference format will include learning community sessions on focused topics along with an introductory ITERS-3 training and a lunch presentation on the soon-to-be-released ECERS-3 validity study. For those who don’t know, learning communities are small groups of peers sharing experiences, seeking feedback, and contributing to the learning of others. These learning community sessions will include a series of mini-presentations from leaders in the field followed by small group discussions to expand knowledge and skills.
