ATTENDEE INFORMATION

 

Read on for the latest news and information you need to make the most of your time at the ASCD 2022 Annual Conference: Recharge & Reconnect. Be sure to bookmark this page because we'll be updating it as we get more information.

The in-person conference takes place March 18–21, 2022, in Chicago, Illinois. All sessions (coming soon) will be held at the Hilton Chicago. Hotel and Travel information will be available soon.

We will be hosting the virtual ASCD Annual Conference on April 20–22, 2022.

 

COVID-19 Response

Out of an abundance of caution and so that we can be together in person, proof of vaccination or proof of negative COVID-19 test within 48 hours is required to attend the live event. You can also read about the health and safety measures at our venue, Hilton Chicago.

As the event approaches, we will continue to monitor the trends nationally and in Illinois. Your safe return to your family, community, and especially the students in your schools who are not yet eligible for a vaccine, is essential. Learn more here.

 

Certificate of Attendance and Academic Credit

A Certificate of Attendance will be e-mailed to all conference participants about one week after the conference. Participants who attend our pre-conference program will receive 5.5 clock hours on their certificate. (More information to come on the pre-conference offerings.) And as an ASCD professional development program participant, you may qualify for academic credit (ASCD does not provide academic credit directly).

 

Using Technology at the Conference

We ask that all participants

  • Be mindful of the parameters of shared bandwidth.
  • Use only one device at a time to access the web when possible or in areas with high network traffic.
  • Avoid using a MiFi device or mobile hotspot.
  • Use the established wireless network SSID or 4G connections.
  • Avoid downloading large files on-site; please download items overnight at your hotel or before you arrive on-site.
  • Fully charge devices before arriving on-site.
  • Avoid using daisy-chain power strips in public spaces or meeting rooms. Unapproved items may be removed by union or facility representatives.

Meeting rooms will have wireless access and limited electrical outlets, so be sure your devices are charged each day. There will be charging stations on-site.
