It’s about that time of year…
The time when everyone in the Illuminate community—from employees and clients to partners and peers—gathers together in one place to connect, learn, and simply have a good time.
Many of you have already registered. Still, there are some of you who are undecided about attending. Is this conference really worth the investment? you might be wondering.
Yes, it really is!
We’re obviously a little biased, but we believe strongly in what we do and the people we’re doing it for. This conference gives us a chance to bring the two together in one jam-packed event.
Here are five reasons why you should consider attending this year’s user conference:
1. Learn from great educators
Learn directly from Illuminate Education masterminds on hot topics like ESSA, MTSS, social and emotional learning, equity, data analysis and more. We’re featuring some keynotes (including our CEO Lane Rankin) and sessions that will inform you of the current landscape of education while providing best practices and other tips to implement in your district or classroom.
2. Check out the latest developments in product
Be the first to see all the new features we’ve developed in our DnA, ISI and ISE products. Gain mastery of the tools embedded in Illuminate’s platform with some hands-on workshops and in-depth training. Also, you’ll get a chance to ask those lingering questions you’ve had throughout the year and see what’s on the roadmap for development.
3. Connect with our community of experts
Take advantage of a unique chance to meet face-to-face with our staff, including Implementation Managers, Professional Development, Support Agents and Data Specialists who can walk you through your experiences with Illuminate. They will be available to share insights on how to best support you with information, data, assessment, and reporting systems to promote educator and student success.
4. Network and hear from customer success stories
Teacher, administration and district leaders from all over the country will be coming to this event. What better place to be for a chance to network with like-minded peers who can give you insight into your roles? Meet new members in the learning community and seek encouragement and inspiration from other educators who are walking in your shoes.
5. Enjoy all the fun activities in San Diego
Throughout your two days, you’ll have a great opportunity to explore the wonderful sights, sounds and bites of San Diego. Whether it’s taking a tour of historic aircraft carriers, hitting the nearby beaches, or just hopping around in the Gaslamp Quarter, you’ll be able to enjoy the vibrant culture this beautiful city has to offer. After all, it’s always sunny in San Diego! (We’re aware of many worse places to be in February.)
