   Forums:  Peer to Peer Teaching   

These free regional/local events are planned and presented by the TAIS Teacher Services Committee and other volunteers from TAIS member schools.  They address issues of interest and/or concern to local teachers and administrators, and may take the form of a roundtable discussion, a workshop, a presentation, or a combination of all three.  Typically held after school, occasionally they take a half- or full-day format.  The Teacher Services Committee develops and schedules 7-8 Forums for each of the state's three regions each year.

Forums are always a work-in-progress as volunteers organize them.  As details arrive, they are posted. 

If you plan to attend a forum, please send an email to the designated contact person who's listed.  Then you simply arrive at the designated school at the designated time.
