About Virtual Symposiums

A Deep Dive into Content

Each ASCD virtual symposium features a deep dive into a timely, relevant issue affecting educators right now. A symposium provides all the benefits of an in-person event, like engaging with peers and presenters in real time. The best part? You get to do it all from the comfort of your home and access every session, even after the event has concluded.

Certificate Course Program

The ASCD certificate course program gives you the opportunity to demonstrate your mastery of the skills you learn at ASCD symposiums and gain the equivalent of 5 contact hours. This optional certificate program allows you to assess your knowledge of issues that affect your classrooms, schools, and districts. Check each symposium's page for program specifics.

An Unbeatable Value

Starting at just $79 per event, ASCD Symposiums are designed to uplift and empower every educator and give you the strategies and skills you need now, alongside experts and your peers. 

And the optional certificate course program is only an additional $25 per symposium.

Know Before You Go

We have put together the following resources to help you prepare for the online meeting environment.


Before the Symposium 

  • Register for the symposium so that you can access the virtual platform (all attendees including speakers, presenters, exhibitors, and press must be registered). If you need assistance with registration, please email us or call 1-800-933-2723 and press 1.
  • Be sure to familiarize yourself with the program ahead of time! This will help you plan out your experience with us.
  • A week prior to the symposium, each registrant will receive a "Know Before You Go" email with important information about the meeting.
  • Check the internet connection, sound, and camera settings on your computer. We suggest checking your computer audio and video settings before joining the meeting.
  • Make note of your username and password. You will receive an email with your log-in information the night before the conference. Keep this email handy, you will need it in order to access the virtual meeting.
  • Remember that all session start times are U.S. eastern time (ASCD follows U.S. eastern daylight time from mid-March to early November) and plan accordingly.


If you have any questions, please email us.
