We invite schools to register a large group for the conference and strategize which sessions make sense for each individual to attend.  Some sessions (our opening keynote and the affinity group times, for example, will not be recorded). The majority of the sessions will be recorded and also available asynchronously. Our team and conference planning committee recognize that most people will not be able to attend everything across all four days of the event, and we are committed to keeping the conference at an affordable price point with generous group discounts so that attendees feel the value of the event and conference experience is incredibly high even if there are parts of the week that they are not able to attend. Please be in touch should you have any questions!
