Sheraton Gateway Los Angeles HotelThe Pepperdine University Graduate School of Education and Psychology will host the fourth annual Better Together: California Teachers Summit at Sheraton Gateway Los Angeles Hotel, on Friday, July 27, from 8:45 AM to 12:45 PM.

The summit will bring together new and seasoned teachers at more than 30 locations across California to strengthen the state’s teacher network, share resources, and experience the concept of personalized learning.

Sir Ken Robinson, an internationally acclaimed expert on creativity and innovation, will deliver this year’s keynote address. In his remarks, Robinson will challenge the way California-based institutions are educating children and champion a radical reconsideration of the state’s school systems.

The event will also feature a TED-style EdTalks presentation given by teacher leaders, which will offer a variety of discussions in an Edcamp format led by teachers for teachers. This format encourages peer-to-peer dialogue and empowers teachers to lean into their own learning.

The summit is free and open to all California pre-K-12 teachers, teacher candidates, school administrators, and other educators, including instructional assistants, school psychologists, and school librarians.
