THEME: Learning from the Past, Reflecting in the Moment, and Building for the Future… Engaging in the Cycle of Inquiry
This is the 50th anniversary of Washington Education Research Association. The conference focuses on the importance of learning communities and their use to impact instruction, assessment, and standards in fostering student learning and professional growth for educators. By focusing on the use of district and building teams that use cycles of inquiry to foster growth, the theme acknowledges the importance of trust, high quality data, and appropriate formative and summative assessments. Authors of proposals are encouraged to incorporate this theme into their presentations.
Conference Breakout Sessions - December 8-9, 2016: Traditional breakout sessions are 75 minutes. In addition, this year we are accepting proposals for 30 minute sessions or 75 minute round table discussions.

Use of technology and/or materials to engage and connect participants is encouraged. Rooms will be set in theater style. LCD projectors, laptops, and screens will be provided. All presentations will be uploaded by November 21 so that attendees will have access at the conference.
