About the Event

We invite you to spend your summer with Sphere and catch some of the best professional learning and development experiences around from the convenience of wherever you may be. Up first will be a session with Jameel Jaffer, the executive director of the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University. Streamed live from Sphere Summit, the conversation will touch on the importance of free speech, academic freedom, and some of the challenges in both K12 and higher education. Join us Monday, July 15, 2024, from 8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. EDT.
