In early June, over 100 innovative educators will gather at Traverse 2019 in Portland, OR, to re-imagine school as a hub for real-world learning. They'll be inspired by leading speakers, engage with forward thinking peers from across the country, and head out on learning expeditions that offer hands-on experience with new ways to engage students in real-world problem-solving. 


Traverse is a different kind of professional experience for educators. It's hands-on, real-world, and built on the expertise of the people in the room. It's a small group of innovative educators learning together and building relationships that last beyond the event. At Traverse, you'll be challenged to try things, take risks, make connections, and leave inspired to lead your school toward the future of learning. 


Imagine a workshop where you head off campus in a bus. Imagine a conference where you're one of the experts. Imagine exploring new ways to teach by actively doing and learning. Imagine brainstorming with Post-Its and a local microbrew in hand, as you sit on a patio in grove of Douglas firs. Imagine an experience where you leave not only with new ideas, but with new collaborators.


Imagine Traverse. Be one of the 100.
