The TestOut Experience Conference

A Different Kind of Conference

TestOut has created a conference like no other. Come learn from educators and industry experts in a setting that combines engaging sessions and workshops with unique excursions… Oh, and did we mention, your family is invited too. During morning sessions, we'll take your family out to explore Utah. Then in the afternoon you'll join them for some truly memorable experiences. Read a letter from Noel (CEO of TestOut) about how it all began.

Learn and Grow

Become a Better Instructor

Learn from a diverse group of educators and experts in a series of sessions and workshops. Learn how to be a more effective instructor, keep students engaged and improve results. Stay ahead of the curve by learning about current trends in education and technology and hear about upcoming TestOut products and features. You'll gain insights that you can take back to your classrooms that will make a lasting impact in the lives of your students.

Attendees also receive .8 CEU's or 8 contact hours of Continuing Education according to the guidelines set forth by the National Task Force on Continuing Education for participation in the conference.

 

Network and Connect

Network and Learn from Others Just Like You

Meet fellow instructors in the TestOut community and build meaningful relationships with each other. You'll get to know others through fun activities and excursions, not just hallway conversations. Interact with TestOut's leadership team and be a valuable part in helping to shape and improve TestOut products and services.

 

Excursions and Activities

Experience the State of Utah with your Family

Experience Utah in some of the most iconic settings. We'll take you to experience the thrill of racing down a bobsled track at high speeds, and the awe of watching aerial flips and twists from the flying aces. Experience first hand pioneer life at This is the Place heritage park and breathe in some fresh mountain air on a hike as you take in breathtaking views and vistas. Get to know each other and your TestOut friends in a truly unique way.
