The main focus of Workshop will always be the training.
After two tumultuous years that have tested all of us personally and professionally, the New Jersey School Boards Association is thrilled to be back in-person for Workshop 2022, Oct. 24-26 at the Atlantic City Convention Center. It is co-sponsored by the NJSBA, the New Jersey Association of School Administrators and the New Jersey Association of School Business Officials.
At Workshop 2022, there will be program formats that appeal to different learning styles. Whether you enjoy listening to expert speakers in a large group setting, want short informational sessions that focus on specific topics, or prefer being part of a small group participating in hands-on activities, Workshop 2022 has every option for you to learn at your pace.
Action Labs These are structured to not only teach attendees best practices, but also provide the opportunity to put those theories into practice. These 90-minute sessions will provide attendees with in-depth learning and engaging activities. They are held in the convention center’s small group rooms to allow for highly interactive, hands-on sessions.
Group Sessions These are 50 minutes in length, take place in a lecture hall setting and often feature a panel of experts or multiple presenters. Among this year’s Group Sessions are programs covering topics such as technology, student achievement/learning, finance, alternative funding, governmental relations, curriculum, legal, policy, shared services, school safety, leadership, board governance, mental health and professional development.
Learning Labs These special sessions will be offered at various Learning Labs throughout the Exhibit Floor. Learning Labs introduce a topic of study and offer participants the chance to decide if they want to dive deeper into training. These sessions are 30 minutes long, content-focused and less formal than the Group Sessions. The Learning Lab setting will offer a wide variety of topics and give participants the opportunity to learn and ask questions in a casual setting.
