In addition to our impactful workshops, speakers and networking opportunities, we are excited to bring a new session to Huddle. We are offering a half day pre-huddle session designed for affiliate members new to the CAPS model.

Who is coming?

CAPS Network affiliates (instructors and directors), supporters and ecosystem partners are attending, as well as current students and alumni. The events and workshops are specifically designed for our Network affiliate partners. However, Huddle is great opportunity for educators and ecosystem practitioners to learn more about profession based learning.

In addition to these partners, we will be joined by presenting partners from Apple, Coffee Lunch Coffee, Northeastern University, Open Way Learning, and the State of Utah, among others.

Where are we headed?

Education Elevated is hosted by our Utah affiliates in Provo, UT. The event is at Nu Skin HQ, the location for our Provo CAPS program!

Provo is just south of Salt Lake City where the nearest airport is to our event.
