Summer Conference on Education

Conference Overview

The 2016 UT/TASA Summer Conference on Education, sponsored by TASA and The University of Texas at Austin’s College of Education, is planned for June 26-28 at the Renaissance Austin Hotel.
Join us for the conference for updates on some of the biggest issues of the day — assessment and accountability, school finance, teacher-student relationships, and more — and a strand dedicated to the “Science of Learning.” In these sessions, you’ll have the opportunity to explore how brain research applies to 21st century learning and school transformation, and how it relates to new state initiatives for professional observation and evaluation as well as to next-generation assessment.
Dr. Henry Roediger, cognitive scientist and co-author of Make it Stick: The Science of Successful Learning, is among the keynote speakers on the conference agenda. The book offers techniques for becoming more productive learners, and cautions against study habits and practice routines that turn out to be counterproductive.
