2011 OSEP Project Directors' Conference

On Monday, July 18, 2011 Laura Atkinson presented at the 2011 Office Special Education Programs (OSEP) Project Directors' Conference. Her poster session, Arizona's Urban Professional Learning Schools Initiative: The Power of Transformative Education, presented on the partnership between ASU and Tempe School District #3 to create professional learning schools where theory and practice could come together to increase learning for Arizona State University teacher candidates, Tempe teachers and, most importantly, Tempe Elementary students.

The OSEP Project Directors' Conference brings together OSEP-funded projects to explore issues regarding preparation, research, technical assistance, technology, and policy and their implications for improving results for children with disabilities. The conference will address current issues and concerns in the field, share information and knowledge across projects, and provide an opportunity for project directors and staff to network and form alliances.
