Educators and researchers from across the country will gather at the University of Memphis for the National Association of Laboratory Schools (NALS) annual conference April 1-3.  The conference is hosted by the U of M’s Barbara K.

NALS is an international association of university-affiliated and laboratory schools that are engaged in teacher training, curriculum development, research, professional development, and educational experimentation. The Lipman School and Campus School are members.

The national conference showcases the collaborations in teacher preparation and research that is done at lab schools.  This is the first time the University of Memphis has hosted such a prestigious group.  

Workshops and presentations will be held in the Fogelman Executive Center. Topics will include decoding young children’s thought processes through the use of documentation; supporting students with learning disabilities in a competitive mainstream environment; supporting faculty research in a laboratory school setting; and designing and building learning through a multi-age, project-based approach.
