An ACADEMIC DAY is an event to which different speakers from either the city or other parts of the country come, in order to share their knowledge with the local teachers.
A REGIONAL CONVENTION is similar to an Academic Saturday, but longer and more exciting. Usually different publishing companies participate with academic and commercial presentations. Lunch is usually included, so participants can build their professional networks! These events take place only once a year, so they are the most important academic event in the State.
A NATIONAL CONVENTION is the most important academic event in the country. It usually occurs in October, starting on a Thursday morning and finishing the following Sunday afternoon. Practically all publishing companies and book distributors attend and display their materials for teachers to have the opportunity to compare and decide. Workshops, plenaries, demonstrations and papers are presented all day long from 8:30 a.m. to around 8:00 p.m. This is the best opportunity to learn about the latest techniques, methodologies and activities in the field. Also, since this event gathers over 2,000 people from all over the country, teachers can learn how things are done in other states and implement changes in their schools.
