2017 Conference Theme: Laboratory Schools - Sound Theories Into Sound Practices

For over 100 years laboratory schools have led the way in innovative teaching and learning, conducting research on best practices, inspiring teacher preparation. In so doing, lab schools have also influenced social learning including leadership, social justice, establishing the importantce of the arts for holistic learning. The 2017 conference at the University of Memphis will explore those lasting tenets while enjoying the rich musical heritage of the city of Memphis.

The IALS Annual Conference is our most important event of the year.  It's the time for us to come together, get to know each other and learn from our successes and from our failures.  It is an incredible learning opportunity you do not want to miss.  For an idea of what to expect, check out the 2016 Conference Documents (the conference program, pictures and videos) under the 2017 Conference menu above.
