Four hundred general and special education teachers and administrators from across Virginia gathered in the Williamsburg Marriott to participate in the 19th Annual Symposium on Professional Collaboration and Inclusive Education on Nov. 10 – 11. The College of William and Mary’s School of Education and the Virginia Department of Education Training and Technical Assistance Center co-sponsored the event.
The symposium offered “a unique collaborative professional development opportunity for general and special educators,” education professor Sharon deFur said in a press release. “This professional development model promotes sharing ideas as well as exposure to research-based practices and tools that the team then integrates into their classroom practice.”
