Academic Festival 2015


With an array of insightful talks and breakout 
sessions showcasing TC’s commitment to strategic innovation and our 
global impact, Academic Festival 2015 
will ignite our collective passion for learning, 
inspire us with new and emerging research, and explore the
ways TC plans to 
in 2015 and beyond.



The butterfly commonly symbolizes transformation, innovation and rebirth. With wings alight, we hope that Academic Festival 2015 will ignite our minds and help us blaze an important trail forward into a year of Strategic Innovation at Teachers College.
