The moment is finally here: The Instructional Coaching Group is proud to announce this year’s Teaching Learning Coaching Conference!


Last year, TLC became a virtual event for the first time ever, and the experience opened up brand-new opportunities which were never possible in previous years — like avoiding travel costs, attending every single session of the conference, and providing on-demand access to TLC content far after the days of the event itself. In fact, it went so well that we’re doing it again. This year’s event will be a 100% virtual experience.

Join other educators from all over the world on November 2-4, 2021 to engage with education experts and practitioners as they lead keynote presentations and learning sessions focused on high-impact teaching strategies, proven instructional coaching practices, and system-change strategies designed to lead to high performance schools.

Registration includes live keynote presentations, expert panel discussion, access to on-demand breakout sessions for 90 days, and more.
