Event Description

AUDIENCE: Grades TK – 5

The CTA Good Teaching Conference (GTC) – Elementary Home Edition! is a complimentary virtual conference for CTA members with a special focus this year on grades TK – 5. Due to COVID-19 and restrictions on large scale gatherings, GTC will be virtual this year.

The CTA Good Teaching Conferences continue to support excellent teaching and learning practices for classroom teachers via peer-to-peer instruction. GTC offers a variety of diverse workshops focused on relevant curriculum content areas.

Your experience at the Good Teaching Conference is equal parts educational and transformational.  You’ll learn new skills and find solutions to real-life challenges.  You’ll leave the conference feeling inspired, motivated and with a knowledge of what you need to do to be even more successful on Monday morning in your classroom.

If you have any questions, please email the conference staff at

University Credit: The University Credit Season Pass is a new benefit to members attending CTA Statewide Conferences. CTA Members, through attending online conferences live or through watching recordings, will be given the opportunity to accumulate the hours of professional growth needed to qualify for university credit units (15 hours per one unit) across the entire season of statewide conferences. As a benefit to members, CTA will cover the cost of enrollment with CSU Chico, normally $75/credit. The Season Pass begins with the 2020 LGBTQ+ Issues Conference and ends with the 2021 CTA Special Education Conference in April.

Click here for more details on the University Credit Season Pass.

Professional Growth Hours: Professional Growth credit will be available at no cost for CTA members and will be based on the number of sessions you attend. Confirmation of professional growth hours will be emailed within two to four weeks after the conference.


The Good Teaching Conference will host an optional virtual game night for you to network with fellow educators on Friday, February 5th from 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm. Please check back for more information!
