ARCHDIOCESE — The annual conference of Lasallian educators will be held in Cincinnati from Nov. 18-20. Nearly 100 Lasallian educational institutions throughout the United States will be represented at the Huether Lasallian Conference, now in its 37th year.
Themed “Promoting Innovative STEM Initiatives in Lasallian Education,” the conference will explore how Lasallian education can effectively prepare students to succeed in the 21st century, providing educators with a wide-range of information in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, which they can use in the classroom.
A pre-conference session on Thursday afternoon will highlight new approaches to math and science education, integrating digital resources, in addition to those available through the National STEM Digital Library.
Dr. Jim Rigg, superintendent of schools for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, will welcome participants at the opening ceremony that evening. Keynote presenters include Jesuit Father George Coyne, president of the Vatican Observatory Foundation; Alex Cirillo, formerly vice president at 3M; and Story Musgrave, retired NASA astronaut.
A banquet honoring several outstanding Lasallian educators will be held on Nov. 20 at La Salle High School on North Bend Road.
Conference sessions will be held at the Hilton Netherland Plaza, 35 West Fifth St., Cincinnati. This educational event is open to all educators.
