  • DLD National Conference Philadelphia - October 24, 2008

    As seems to happen every year, DLD's meeting in late October in Philadelphia was well received by participants. A quick perusal of the evaluations showed that nearly all of the people who submitted their evaluations rated sessions as well above average. One respondent spontaneously told president Rollanda O'Connor that it was the best conference she had ever attended and another told past president Kathleen Marshall that he had called his principal after the Friday sessions to tell the principal how much he was learning and would be able to share with his colleagues.

    As soon as we can get them ready, we'll add pictures and other comments to this page. So, watch this space to see what you can experience when you attend DLD's Bridging the Gap Between Research and Practice.
