A Message From Conference Co-Chairs

Hello Nebraska Literacy Educators, Scholars, and Advocates in Nebraska (and beyond!), 

As we all deal with the trying times of the pandemic, we invite you to recharge, refresh, and re-engage with your passion for literacy via our 2021 virtual speaker series (in lieu of our regular in-person conference). We have listened to our members and past-conference attendees and planned a conference series based on your needs! For five consecutive Thursdays, beginning February 4th, national literacy experts will be addressing some of your biggest professional development requests. Find a comfy spot, grab your favorite beverage and snack, and queue up your computer to learn about setting up conditions for all students to learn, selecting quality multicultural literature, teaching remotely, building a strong reading foundation, and creating digital learning environments. 

We are excited to announce this 5-part virtual series is completely free to our members! We have many generous speakers and sponsors who have offered to provide these experiences free of charge to members as a way to say “thanks” for all of your hard work this year. If you are not a member, we would love to have you join us for the yearly membership for just $35. Want a taste of the collegiality and professional development offered by NSLA? Join us for a free (for all) event on Jan. 21 with well-known storyteller, Pippa White, and honoring some of our members during our NSLA Awards Night. Click on the conference tab above to register and learn more! We look forward to sharing some relaxing and insightful Thursday evenings with you!
