Session Types

Deep Dives: A signature DL conference experience, Deep Dives provide immersive experiences that aim to support you in experiencing deeper learning for yourself. Will you dive into outdoor education, explore the power of AI, or develop ways to engage families and students as agents of change? The possibilities are transformative.

Community Advisory: Intentional small-by-design sessions throughout the event create an opportunity to build relationships, process experiences from the event, and discuss, plan, and act toward the future. Your Deep Dive colleagues will become your small group for three sessions during the event.

Workshops: Two rounds of 90-minute workshops offered on Day 1 (April 2) and Day 3 (April 4) of the event will connect you with practitioners and highlight promising practices. Session descriptions and details are posted in Sched with topics ranging from student agency to culturally responsive pedagogy to school transformation.

Den Talks: Opportunities for attendees to engage in deep conversations on issues that matter in education. No slide decks, just real talk–-the den is a place for attendees to connect with luminaries, hear transformative stories, and ask questions. The DL Den is the place to be!

Selecting Sessions

When do we select sessions?

Sched Preview Week will start on March 10th, when you can look at the session descriptions and make a plan for sessions you are interested in. During this week, Sched will be view only. You’ll want to ensure you are able to log into your Sched during preview week so you are ready for session selection. 

On March 17th at 5pm Pacific Time, you may select your sessions. Sessions hold a maximum of 25 participants by design, so some will fill up quickly. You will want to have 3-4 options in mind in case your first choices are full. There will be no waitlists.

Why is the deep dive so long?

We believe that deeper learning requires time to build relationships, and fully engage with topics. Deep Dives offer participants a chance to go deeper, which may include, research, reflection, creation, and collaboration. Some Deep Dives are project slices, where educators can experience a project as students, notice powerful teacher moves, and be inspired to transform your practice and schools. We recommend perusing the Deep Dive descriptions at preview week and selecting 3-4 options in case your first choices get filled quickly. Lunch is included with each deep dive.

Why should I attend Community Advisory?

If we are to learn deeply together, we have to know one another. Community Advisory offers a glimpse into ways we design our schools to build relationships among students. Participants will experience opportunities to make connections with other attendees, reflect on their learning, and make a plan for bringing back some of the DL goodness to your contexts. Your advisory group will be the same as your Deep Dive group, so you will have multiple opportunities to connect and collaborate.
