    NATIONAL RETREAT FOR ACADEMIC LEADERS

    This unique event is for academic deans, deans of faculty, deans of study, assistant heads of school, department chairs, teacher-leaders, or anyone tasked with leading initiatives on curriculum and assessment in schools. Featuring a hybrid "unconference" with exciting and relevant keynotes from ICG executive director and blogger Peter Gow and thought-leader and hands-on expert Jonathan Martin, the Retreat combines a beautiful setting with unsurpassed opportunities to share and collaborate with peers from around North America to enhance and invigorate your PLN, your personal practice, and your school's strategic work.

    Held at the beautiful Whispering Pines Conference Center on the W. Alton Jones Campus of the University of Rhode Island, the National Retreat for Academic Leaders will be an extraordinary experience for educators committed to transforming schools both to build powerful connections and to explore pressing questions as they create the future of education.
