Conference Highlights – Masters’ Series

By Tim Webster

In addition to the Grants and Research supported presentations announced via e-blast last week, be sure to add these additional Masters’ Series (MS) classes to your list of “must see” options.  You may be asking yourself, “What makes a “Masters Series” workshop or presentation different from the others”?

The Masters Series provide the following consistent elements to ASPE attendees:

  • Experienced presenters who are known as experts in their field
  • Presenters have been invited by the conference committee to speak about current and relevant topics because of their knowledge
  • Content of the presentations reflect accepted standards in SP Education
  • The topics target veteran SP educators yet invite growth of any curious members. All are welcome.
