GEDTS 2022 Annual Conference Preview
Our annual conference is one month away, and we’re excited to see all of you in Atlanta.
During the conference, July 13th through 15th, we’re offering opportunities to network with fellow educators, Administrators, and the GED Testing Service team. We will also provide the latest professional development workshops and information sessions related to the GED test program.
Our keynote speaker will be renowned author and NYU professor Daniel Lerner. He is a celebrated positive psychologist whose work is helping individuals fuel their work and life with passion. For over a decade, Daniel has been researching and applying positive psychology and how it impacts the performance of students, athletes, executives, and teams. He brings out the best in individuals by helping them strike a balance between stress and anxiety while discovering their strengths and a path to long-term success.
Professional Development Sessions
The annual conference is an opportunity for us to share insight on the best ways to prepare your students for the GED test subjects from who better but the creators of the test!
Our workshops and sessions will cover tips and strategies for teaching GED students, share some of the latest postsecondary outcomes data and student research and offer chances for you to ask the GED team your burning questions about the test.
The very popular Corrections track will also return this year with sessions designed to cater to the unique instructional needs of educators in the Corrections environment. In addition, we’re also launching the brand-new Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I) track with sessions dedicated to sharing inclusive learning techniques and other information to help you incorporate DE&I in your instruction and across your adult education program.
