Welcome Deeper Learners!

We are excited to welcome you to Westwood, MA at the end of September. The Deeper Learning Boston conference has a rich history. Although this is our inaugural year of the conference, the Deeper Learning movement began in the Northeast region and spread domestically and globally from there. Please enjoy this short background on the conference itself, where we honor "On Whose Shoulders We Stand: A Brief History"

This digital program is for all things DL Boston! Be sure to select one Deep Dive for Day 1 and two Den Talks for Day 2. You will only be able to sign up for one Deep Dive! These sessions have capacity limits and will fill up. To see an overview of the event and session types, check out the event flow.

We can’t wait to see you!
