The future offers exciting opportunities to embrace new learning environments and emerging technologies. To adapt and thrive, we must be Agents of Change. As Educators, Trainers and Leaders, we play an integral role in adapting to changes that meet the needs of the global lifelong learner. Immersive experiences using virtual and augmented reality, analytics, and adaptive learning, are just a few of the trends that challenge thinking and inspire innovation.

Supporting this challenge, the 2018 TxDLA Conference features sessions and activities on trends in educational technology, inspiring innovation, best practices, gamification & virtualization, PK-12, accessibility and universal design, and cybersecurity and data analytics. Cultivate leadership and administrative skills through sessions on faculty and student support, educational outreach and workforce development, administration, leadership and policy, and research. Join us as we strive to inspire innovation as Agents of Change.
