Upcoming and Recent Presentations

Beyond working within our own walls and with professional organizations on partnership initiatives, Winston Innovation Lab works towards influencing the field of education by sharing our philosophy, research, and implementation models with educators on a global scale. 

Members of the Winston Innovation Lab have been invited to professional learning conferences to present on a range of topics that serve to both challenge the status quo of traditional education and illuminate the possibilities of innovative approaches backed by the science of learning. These conferences are attended by educators, learning specialists, advocates, clinicians, researchers, and parents from all over the world.
