Winter Conference 2015
Our Leadership Stories: Nurturing the Seeds of Change
The OALA Winter Conference is more than a conference with great speakers, it's a vehicle to develop, support and mentor the next generation of Oregon educators in a more diverse and challenging learning environment.
Held annually, the OALA Winter Conference offers intensive exploration of the field of innovative instructional and learning strategies for Latino students, best practices for parent involvement, closing of the achievement gap for English language learners, and profession development training for aspiring administrators. Participants can expect a hand-on curriculum which includes presentations by nationally-recognized authors and educational officials.
