2017 National Direct Instruction Conference Keynotes Available Online

A video of Siegfried Engelmann and Robert Pondiscio's keynotes are posted for viewing on YouTube or accessed through the NIFDI website.

In his opening, Zig spoke about maximizing student success in DI programs and the importance of training and practice.

Robert Pondiscio, writer and speaker on education issues, spoke on the lack of education policy makers attention to the importance of curriculum. Pondiscio cautioned that student performance outcomes are frequently measured without consideration of what is actually going on in classrooms in terms of instruction.

Each keynote is about 30 minutes in length and well worth the time investment.
