Typical Conference Program
As a peer conference, edACCESS does not have a traditional roster of speakers to view in advance. At edACCESS, you won’t find yourself shuffling from ballroom to ballroom with hundreds of other nameless attendees. Instead, edACCESS follows a unique structure – the peer conference model – where attendees plan and develop the conference program on the first day of the conference. Our founder, Adrian Segar, pioneered this model in the early days of our program, and more information can be found at https://conferencesthatwork.com.
edACCESS sessions are attendee-led and focused on discussing and solving real problems that attendees are experiencing at their schools. This peer conference model guarantees that when you attend edACCESS you’ll leave with actionable advice and solutions that can be implemented on your first day back in the office. Learn more about peer conferences and how they work.
Specific health protocols will be in place if deemed necessary at the time of the conference.
Below is the usual schedule for each day. Topics will be selected by attendees through a collaborative discussion process on day one.
