2020 Virtual Conference

Location: Virtual

Attend the 2020 Virtual Conference

A Re-Envisioned Conference with the 21st Century Learner in Mind

Please join us for the CT COLT Virtual Fall Conference from Sunday, October 18 – Thursday, October 22, 2020, an online virtual conference.  This year’s conference will be a virtual one, held completely online.  This year’s conference will have a number of changes, including a panel discussion with students from around the state, workshops offered in the afternoon and evening, and lengthening our virtual conference to a five-day event.  We are thrilled to share this year’s conference sessions with you, so that you can plan ahead to learn and share with colleagues presenting from not only Connecticut, but from experts in our field from across the country. The CT COLT five-day virtual conference is organized with the same three goals in mind that we always have: (1) to offer in a wide-variety of workshops for professional growth (2) to provide opportunities to visit exhibitors and network with colleagues, and (3) to listen to and to be energized by not only our keynote panel, but to the many voices of professionals who freely share their time and expertise.

Conference Schedule:  Sunday, 10/18-Thursday, 10/22

All sessions are in the afternoon and evening, so attendees can teach during the day and attend the conference after school.  Members of CT COLT will receive access to all workshop materials and recordings through 12/31/20.  There is a virtual exhibit hall Monday-Thursday from 5-6 p.m.
