Catholic Education Summit Focuses on Innovation

The seventh Catholic Education Summit will bring together teachers, principals and other stakeholders June 21 at the University of Dayton to discuss the future of Catholic education.

“The summit provides an opportunity for Catholic educators to exchange ideas and find energy to create solutions for new challenges faced by Catholic schools and in society,” said Susan Ferguson, director of the University’s Center for Catholic Education. Nearly 1.8 million children attend Catholic schools nationwide, according to the National Catholic Educational Association.

Three keynote speakers will address attendees: Timothy Uhl, superintendent of Montana Catholic Schools and creator of the blog and podcast Catholic School Matters, on innovative models and curriculum; Peg Dubrowski, author, consultant and former teacher, on sustained learning; and the hosts of The Armchair Catholic — Sean Costello, Richard Budd and Craig Pohl — on creating their podcast.

Several alumni of the University’s Lalanne program will also present. The summit coincides with Lalanne’s 20th anniversary. The program allows future teachers committed to serving under-resourced Catholic schools to earn their master’s degree while benefiting from mentors and a faith-based living community.

More information, including how to register, is available on the summit website.
