ISABC Virtual Professional Development Conference 2024
Join us for the Pro-Development Conference on Friday, February 16th 2024.
Attendee Registration opens on January 15th, 2024 at 9am.
At ISABC, we believe in the power of professional development to inspire growth, foster collaboration,
and drive innovation in the field of education. Our Pro-D Conference is a unique opportunity for educators,
administrators, education professionals, and parents to come together and expand their
knowledge base, exchange ideas, and enhance their practices.
The conference will focus on raising awareness, providing information and support,
and elevating the conversation around:
Mental Health and Wellbeing
Importantly, the day will provide practical support and information for those in the
education field and parents in their engagement with young people – as well as support
for adults in their own mental health and wellbeing,
environmental sustainability, and Indigenous education journeys.

The Professional Development Conference will be held virtually allowing convenience for participants across the ISABC community. We anticipate hosting nearly 1500 attendees at the conference.

We are thrilled to have Dr. Binfet as the keynote speaker this year. Dr. Binfet is an associate professor in the Faculty of Education at the University of British Columbia. His research focus is the investigation of kindness in schools including how children, adolescents, and teachers understand what it means to be kind within a school context. Dr. Binfet’s goal is to create inclusive spaces where students are challenged to think differently and move forward through the world in creative and meaningful ways.
