2014 LD Innovation Symposium
The theme of the one-day 2014 LD Innovation Symposium at Landmark College is "Diverse Technologies for Diverse Minds." Early-bird registration is now available. Details about workshops and presenters will be available soon.
Through innovation and accommodation, every classroom and workplace can be focused on people's strengths.
