Since 1985, we have had the pleasure of meeting teachers from around the world. Here are some of the comments our past participants have said about their experience here at Exeter.
"This conference is something every teacher should attend."
"Wonderful experience. Great opportunity to meet colleagues from all over the world and discuss relevant classroom issues."
"The conference is awesome. I hope to come back year after year. I feel privileged to have been here."
"Easily the best conference I've been to. The combination of courses, CWIC sessions and speakers allows individuals to have a highly focused area of study while also experiencing a variety of different presentations."
"I recommend this conference to any mathematics teacher I meet!"
"I really liked the conference as a new teacher - it was a warm environment to network with people in my field."
"Everyone, leaders, "students", and staff are so willing to share. Even though my school year ends the Friday before the conference starts, I am reborn, rejuvenated and recommitted to teaching."
- Participants register for 2 courses of their choice. We fill our courses on a first-come, first-served basis, so register early.
- Each course meets for one hour on Sunday, two hours each day Monday through Thursday, and one hour Friday.
