Fortify Conference 2017

Fortify Conference 2017 is in the past.

Lipscomb's Ayers Institute presents its 2017 Fortify Conference on Wednesday, Sept. 13, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Lipscomb University. This year's theme is "Learning in the 21st Century," and topics are relevant to current-service, pre-service and higher education teachers and leaders. 

The Fortify conference is a unique opportunity for collaboration among K-12 and higher education professionals in Tennessee and beyond. This annual event combines expertise, experience and knowledge from both arenas of education; strengthening the practices of both. Fortify seeks to build bridges between K-12 and higher education in order to benefit both entities.

The vision for Fortify is to be a highly anticipated event that brings together K-12 and higher education faculty for authentic collaboration focused on topics relevant to both groups, including state or federal policy changes. It is student-focused, practical in nature and innovative in its offerings. The conference is driven by choice of participants and provides not only networking opportunities, but also reflection time and research sharing.

Tickets are $125 for professional educators and $25 for education students, and lunch and snacks are included. To register, click here
