​Design the Revolution: Blending Learning, Leading, and Innovation

Watch our conference theme come alive in this welcome video.

Independent education plays a leading role in the revolution changing the way the world thinks. The myriad ways we can learn and innovate knows no bounds thanks to new patterns of innovation, an emphasis on instructional systems, and increasing interaction with new people and ideas around the globe. This freedom comes with a responsibility to design a plan for success that includes thinking creatively, problem-solving differently, defining 21st century learning, and leading students into a future we’ve only glimpsed. Join us at the 2015 NAIS Annual Conference in Boston to learn how design thinking techniques can reinvigorate and transform your school into a cutting-edge center for learning in a new age. Together let’s build a plan to prepare our 21st century students to embrace the challenges of higher education, global citizenship, and the workplace with flexibility, grit, and resilience.​​​
