Catholic schools strive to be inclusive of all learners, and teachers and administrators are seeking strategies, best practices and resources to help serve the needs of exceptional learners in the classroom. Ergo, it is with great pleasure that we announce the NCEA 2017 New Directions Exceptional Learners Conference (NCEA 2017 ELC), which will take place June 19-21, 2017 in Evanston, IL (Chicago area).
Focused around the Six Tasks of Catechesis, this unique conference brings together religion teachers, campus ministers, administrators and service coordinators to discuss the latest information and best practices in religious education and social justice. Utilizing a variety of best practices in adult learning such as small group dialogue and analysis of real-life questions, participants will engage in discussion and activities with one another and experts in the areas of adolescent development and discipleship. The conference will take place June 23-25 at the University of Dayton.
