Event Description

*January 11, 2022 Update*

The CTA board voted to transition the upcoming 2022 CTA Good Teaching Conference – North scheduled for January 28-30 to a virtual format. We are working out the details for the virtual conference, and plan to hold the virtual version of 2022 CTA Good Teaching Conference – North on the same date as the in-person event.  We will post additional details regarding the virtual conference as they become available.

 All registered attendees as of January 11th were sent an email regarding the transition of this conference to a virtual format.

 For those not registered for the in-person conference, registration for the virtual event will be available on this page in the next few days. Please check back soon.


The CTA Good Teaching Conferences continue to support excellent teaching and learning practices for classroom teachers via peer-to-peer instruction. Offering a variety of diverse workshops focused on curriculum content areas for K-12 teachers, the conferences provide opportunities for professional development and offer time to network and share ideas with colleagues and experts in the field of education. Join us on Friday for two newly updated and timely pre-conferences.

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
