Gathering to Celebrate the Learner.
The CDL4: Virtual Gathering is an online, virtual conference for CDL practitioners to come together and celebrate the learner, learn from experts and each other, and network around Christian teaching and learning.
At our Virtual Gathering on February 19th, 2021, all participants are invited come together to worship, share our good work during our PD Package time at our schools, learn from experts and one another, and experience what has been a highlight at our last two CDL conferences: a student presentation of learning.
Free tickets are included

The experts behind the PD packages will join us for the Virtual Gathering to deliver keynotes and a live Q&A with the audience.
Students will be presenting us with inspiring showcases displaying their Deeper Learning work “for real people that forms the self and shapes the world.”
Networking & Collaboration

World-Class Keynote Speakers
CDL4 Virtual Gathering is a continuation of the Professional Development conversation.
Our vision for CDL4: Virtual Gathering is that it will be a continuation of the professional development experience. We are thrilled to announce that our Professional Development speakers are joining us to lead our discussions on the Virtual Gathering day as well.
We encourage you to consider that the likelihood of truly implementing deeper learning practices is greatly enhanced with the participation of your whole school. If this is not possible, we hope that your key teaching and learning leaders will be able to participate in the Virtual Gathering.
