Festival of the Minds

Professional Learning Conference

The Festival of the Minds professional learning conference occurs annually and provides a diversity of sessions for all PK-12 instructional staff to hone their instructional practice. At Festival of the Minds, APS staff share their knowledge, skills, and experiences as presenters and facilitators. Staff register for morning, afternoon, all-day, or several day sessions in ERO.


This year’s Festival of the Minds will be held August 20-22 at Washington Lee High School.  If you have an APS Google Account you can view the digital 2018 Festival of the Minds Program (you must be logged into your APS Google account to view).  If you do not yet have an APS Google Account, you can view the 2018 Festival of the Minds Schedule PDF.  In the program, you can view the schedule for each day.  You can also view sessions by intended audience.


Check back in August for 2018 FOM session resources.

Presenters were invited to share the documents and resources related to their presentations so that attendees would be able to access them after the conference had concluded.  To access any of the resources that were shared at the 2017 Festival of the Minds Professional Learning Conference please click here.  You must be signed in with your APS Google account in order to access the resources.
