Constructivist Educational Strategies


The Constructivist Design Conference for Educational Improvement is hosted on the beautiful St. Lawrence University campus in Canton, New York annually each July. Join us at the conference the week of July 17 – 21, 2017.

No long lectures. Be immersed in constructivism, empowered by experts and resources, and leave with a product that will help improve your classroom or school.

Focus on your own needs. Come with a task that you want to work on during the week. Leave with a product and plan for its immediate use.

Past tasks have included:

  • Writing, mapping, or aligning curriculum and assessments to standards
  • Creating, modifying, or developing implementation plans for professional development or school improvement
  • Preparing for ELA, Math, Science, or Social Studies assessments

New ideas from great teachers. Attend workshops that expand your knowledge of student-centered learning, educational technology, and more.

Extended work time. Focus on the task that is important to you and your team of coworkers.

Family-friendly atmosphere. We are proud to be a family-friendly conference. We offer childcare for the little ones, and activities for older children.

“We were expecting to gain a few tidbits on teaching, but we left with strategies that have the potential to change the culture and attitude of our school forever.” —Participant
