University of Minnesota faculty and staff come together for this one-day workshop to offer a unique opportunity for school staff and colleagues to learn about current reading research and its practical applications in the classroom directly from the experts, and get feedback on how to meet the needs of K-12 readers and apply research in the critical area of effective reading instruction.
The workshop will feature a keynote address by Kristen McMaster, Associate Professor of Educational Psychology, along with breakout sessions led by other U of M faculty and staff from the College of Education and Human Development. The day will conclude with a Q&A panel discussion with the presenters.
