About #KDPconvo18Convocation, or Convo, is more than just a conference—it’s one of KDP’s longest-standing traditions. The workshops, idea exchanges, keynote speakers, and networking opportunities make Convo truly a one-of-a-kind experience. Attendees have an opportunity to meet education rock stars including members of the Laureate Chapter, present workshops or poster sessions, and get training as chapter leaders. Convo is also where chapter and individual award winners are recognized. It is an event that every Kadelpian should experience at least once.
Innovative Learning Formats
This carefully designed conference models best pedagogical practices—with all presenters leading by example. Innovative learning formats facilitate knowledge exchanges and reflection, and allow you to personalize your learning to your own level, needs, and interests. As you design your education experience with your professional objectives in mind, be sure to explore new formats and find fun in your learning.
Attendance at Convo sessions may earn you Continuing Education Units. Each state has different requirements, so KDP cannot guarantee you will obtain a certain number of credits. Please keep your Convo Certificate of Participation and your program book, because they may be needed as proof of attendance.
