Learn from colleagues, share best practice and take home practical strategies for immediate application.

These teacher workshops are real nuggets of gold that nourish my experience as a life-long learner.
They were amazing. I walked away doing self-reflection on my teaching.

I loved each and every day and left feeling rejuventated and eager to use all the new things I learned.

Our thoughts and sympathies go out to the victims of the terrorist attacks that took place in Sri Lanka on April 21, 2019. As the Shangri-La Hotel in Colombo (the planned venue for the 2020 NESA Spring Educators Conference) was one of the locations affected, regrettably, we can no longer hold the conference in Colombo.

The new venue is the Shangri-La Hotel in Bangkok, Thailand. The SEC dates remain April 2-5, 2020.
