Training, Collaborating, and SharingTDOE Calendar of Events
In an effort to support educators in implementing various initiatives, the department hosts and organizes many training events and conferences throughout the year for Tennessee educators.
The annual Tennessee Educational Leadership Conference gives school and district leaders the opportunity to share and discuss effective practices happening every day in their districts and schools. With valuable first-person examples, educators from across the state share their best ideas for preparing Tennessee’s students for college and careers.
Tennessee directors of schools gather each year for a conference and professional development workshop in Gatlinburg.
We believe that students are general education students first, and additional support is part of the continuum of services offered to meet the needs of all students. The PIE conference feature sessions and workshops on providing support to all students.
Institute for CTE Educators
Career and technical educators and administrators gather each year for the Institute for CTE Educators in Nashville. The institute features sessions, workshops, industry tours, and industry certifications for educators to prepare students for college and career readiness.
