Get a Head Start with Character Development Workshop and Indy Walking Tours

Registration is now open for the preconference workshops at the 2023 AACTE 75th Annual Meeting in Indianapolis on February 23 – 24. Preconference sessions are fee-based events that provide in-depth discussions, deliver knowledge, and link participants with a community of learners who share common interests.

This year, AACTE is pleased to offer half-day preconferences ($49), full-day preconferences ($99), and special tours (pricing below).

Limited seating is available, so register today for these interactive events. Arrive early to discuss issues with peers who share similar academic and research interests on complex education challenges and solutions.

If you’ve already registered for the conference and would like to add a preconference offering, contact our registration team at gjones@aacte.org. Registration for the 75th AACTE Annual Meeting is not required to attend pre-conference events.

Indianapolis Tours

Walking Tour of Downtown Indianapolis’s Black History
A hardcore history buff, Sampson Levingston decided to bring people together — during the height of protests over Black Lives Matter last summer — by leading outdoor walking tours of traditionally African American neighborhoods. Join him on a 90-minute walking tour that starts right outside the hotel’s front doors. Special tour rates are $25 per person.

Guided Tour of Eiteljorg Museum 
The Eiteljorg tells the stories of the peoples of North America in all their diversity and complexity. It is a place for historical context, artistic expression, new ideas, and individual perspectives. Special tour rates are $18 per person for a 60-minute guided tour, with additional time to continue to explore the museum at your own pace.
