2016 AASSA Educators’ Conference




Colegio Franklin D. Roosevelt Lima, Peru

April 13 – 16, 2016



Looking for Learning

Next year’s AASSA Educators’ Conference, hosted by Colegio Roosevelt, will be novel in many ways: there will be a one-day Pre-Conference followed by a 3-day Main Conference. The first day will feature a keynote and an entire day of Practitioner-Led Workshops. The subsequent two days will feature main presenters and Learning Lab classes of FDR students being taught by teachers who will volunteer and be selected: small groups of observers will debrief the class “looking for the learning.”

The Looking for Learning theme will be supported by the following impressive group of keynoters and workshop leaders:

  1. Kevin Bartlett

  2. Mike Johnston

  3. Laura Lipton

  4. Ewan McIntosh

  5. Howard Pitler

  6. Scott Poland

  7. Martin Skelton

  8. David Willows

  9. John Zola

Conference information will be posted on the AASSA site in August and registration is scheduled to open in early October.




Teacher and Exhibitor Workshop Proposals Currently Being Accepted for Lima




Teacher workshops have become an integral part of the AASSA Educators’ Conference and teachers in the region are encouraged to put themselves forward as presenters. At the Lima conference, teacher workshops will be the feature of the first day, with no competing sessions from hired presenters!

Please see the requirements and submit an online proposal at: http://www.aassa.com/page.cfm?p=437



Presentations must be evaluated by a panel at each presenter’s school and the head of the school must submit the ranking sheet to me. We will then schedule the top-ranking presentations.

If you need any information on this process, please contact either Esther (enicolau@aassa.com) or Paul (ppoore@aassa.com).




The absolute deadline for submission by teachers is October 13, 2015. Heads’ rankings are due by October 27, 2015. Associate Members’ workshop proposals are due October 13th
