2023 Winter Workshop

Our Winter Workshop is a unique opportunity for educators, test prep professionals, and consultants to come together, learn from one another, and participate in interactive sessions. Unlike our summer conference, which focuses primarily on presentations, our Winter Workshop is designed to foster active engagement through group exercises, panel discussions, and hands-on workshops.

Why Attend?

At the heart of our Winter Workshop is the belief that the best learning often comes from each other. You’ll have the chance to:

  • Engage in interactive group exercises that stimulate thought and discussion
  • Participate in panel discussions, hearing from and questioning a diverse range of experts in the field
  • Take part in workshops aimed at improving your skills, techniques, and strategies
  • Network with fellow professionals in a collaborative and friendly environment
