* Tuesday: "Flipping the Classroom: Getting Off the Stage" will be held in the GPS Caldwell Commons from noon to 3 p.m.

The forum discusses an environment that personalizes learning, increases student-teacher and student-student interaction, with a goal of greater student understanding of key concepts.

This workshop is free to TAIS member schools, $25 for all others. Reservations are required, since lunch is included. Email Kristi Bryson at

* Friday: "Engagement 2.0" will be held from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
