Know Before You Go


We are so excited that you will be joining us for the 2021 ASCD Leadership Summit! Starting this Friday, January 22, you will be able to log in to the conference platform to familiarize yourself with the program and all the great networking opportunities available. Here are a few highlights of the great things we have in store for you January 27–29, 2021.


Before the Summit 

  • Build Your Personalized Conference Agenda: Don't miss the first 5 minutes of a session while you scroll through all of the available content to find what interests you! Select the sessions you would like to see now and create an agenda tailored to your needs. Once it's showtime you can relax knowing that you are right where you want to be.
    • If you need a transcript to show what sessions you attended, add them to your schedule and download the PDF.
  • Remember that all summit live session times are U.S. eastern standard time (U.S. EST) and plan accordingly.

During the Summit

  • Spark community & connection: Enhance your Leadership Summit experience by scheduling 30-minute small group meetings with your colleagues, all within the virtual conference platform.
    • Attending the conference as a group? Use this feature to debrief from sessions and share your takeaways with your peers.
    • Attending the conference on your own? Use this feature to catch up with a colleague or meet new educators who share your unique interests and goals.
  • Connect with Us! Use the hashtag #ASCDLeadership to share your favorite moments from the event and connect with fellow attendees. Post a comment on Twitter or LinkedIn using our hashtag and it will be visible on the Social Wall.
    • Want to take a picture of all the fun you are having during the conference? Visit the Photo Booth and show us what you've got! As a bonus, post using the #ASCDLeadership hashtag and you could win free registration to the ASCD Annual Conference—three lucky winners will be randomly selected.
  • Start Day 2 with a Zen State of Mind:
    January 28, 9:30–9:50 AM EST
    Join Laura Hayes in meditation and gentle yoga flow as you come back to your intentions of why you signed up for this conference. The only flexibility that you need in this practice is the flexibility in your mind. Experience connection of community as we do this practice together.


After the Summit

  • Although ASCD does not provide continuing education credits for attending the Leadership Summit, we will provide you with a list of sessions you attended during the conference. You can submit this list of sessions to your state department to receive renewal credit or give this list to your principal as documentation of the educational content you participated in here at the conference. This is a great record of the meaningful professional learning you acquired while attending ASCD's Leadership Summit!
  • Meeting attendees will have full access to the recorded sessions after the summit has concluded. All sessions will remain available until 11:59 p.m. U.S. EST on February 28, 2021.
