The College of St. Scholastica hosts its ninth annual Teaching and Learning Conference, a professional development event for current and aspiring teachers. The one-day conference is meant for making connections with leaders in the field of education.
Presentations will include hands-on workshops and research-based “best practices” in teaching, learning and leading. Ann Bancroft, polar explorer, educator and lecturer, will provide the keynote address: “Dare to Dream: The Power of Teaching.”
Bancroft is one of the world’s pre-eminent polar explorers and an internationally recognized leader dedicated to sharing stories from her expeditions to inspire youth and people around the world to follow their dreams and create change.
She is the first known woman to have crossed the ice to both the North and South Poles, led the first American women’s crossing of Greenland east to west, and became the first woman to ski across the continent of Antarctica with Norwegian explorer Liv Arnesen.
Her expeditions have been featured by media outlets around the country and the world, including the BBC, CNN, National Public Radio, Time, People, USA Today, National Geographic, Outside and Sports Illustrated for Kids.
