One Amazing Event, Two Engaging Ways to Attend
[ Scottsdale, AZ ]
July 6th - 9th, 2021
[ Virtual Institute ]
July 19th - 22nd, 2021
LONG + LIVE + MATH: The National Institute is unlike any other education conference. Whether you join us onsite or on your sofa, you’ll come away feeling empowered, energized, and equipped to make a difference in your students’ lives.
You’ve managed to teach through a global pandemic, so there’s no better time to bring together the smartest, most passionate (and understandably exhausted) educators and leaders. Together, you’ll share insights and strategies with the common goal of helping every student reach their full potential in mathematics, whether they’re at school or at home.
LONG + LIVE + MATH has always been about transformation and the educators who are making things happen. Take control of your TNI experience by selecting the interactive workshops and networking opportunities aligned with your professional learning goals.
We’re excited to make this year’s Institute even more engaging, inspiring, and accessible than ever before! (It’s the most dramatic season yet!)
We’re offering both an onsite experience and a virtual experience. You choose what’s best for you and, as always, you’ll design your own completely customized experience by selecting from a plethora of interactive workshop sessions and networking opportunities. Your professional learning is in your hands!
Blasts from Institutes Past
Going virtual last summer allowed us to offer even more opportunities for attendees to invest in their professional learning; including more content choices, an increased number of opportunities to network, and synchronous and asynchronous learning experiences across time zones. All attendees received access to recordings of every breakout session and resource for the entire 2020-2021 school year.
Hundreds of passionate educators attended the 10th annual conference in beautiful Bonita Springs, Florida. Featuring top-notch speakers and engaging sessions, the 2019 conference was nothing short of stellar.
