BYU Education Week is a cherished opportunity for faculty members to share their insights and research with the community.
Each year, BYU hosts Education Week, a week-long continuing education conference open to the public (ages 14+). Topics range from religion and family life to psychology and linguistics. This year’s conference will run from August 16–20, with classes available throughout each day.
Education Week is returning to in-person classes after hosting a virtual lecture series in 2020. To purchase an Education Week pass, visit https://educationweek.byu.edu. Prices are $82 for the week or $36 for a day pass.
