APOST Fall Conference: Thank you!

A huge thank you to everyone who attended, presented, and contributed to the APOST Fall Conference last week. This year's 2019 APOST Fall Conference had over 130 attendees, even more than last year! Special thanks to the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust Arts Education Center for hosting us, and to the APOST-ers who kept everything running smoothly.

We've also put together a special blog post with all of the slides, handouts, and resources from our conference workshop presenters.
