Professional Development

In addition to the professional development events that The Riordan Foundation hosts, we look out for opportunities hosted by other organizations that may be of interest to our network.

Attending any of these events? Let us know how it goes!

  • The UCLA Writing Project and Center X invite you to the 25th annual With Different Eyes Conference. We focus on access and equity for all students, with English learners center stage. And we define English learners broadly: newcomers to the United States, long-term English learners, speakers of African American English and indigenous languages. Rooted in a social justice stance and aligned with the Common Core State Standards, our conference poses questions and sheds light on the joys and challenges of teaching and learning in urban classrooms.
