Chuck Poole has done it again with another edu-all-star packed virtual conference for professional learning. In year's past, participants were able to watch live and then review recorded sessions at their own pace.
The virtual conference begins on Monday, October 19th and runs through Friday, October 23rd. The sessions will be on a schedule that will be posted. If you sign up to have access to the sessions, you can do it at your earliest convenience and you'll be able to replay them.
The format for each session is easy to fit into your work schedule as sessions are between 10 minutes and 30 minutes with actionable takeaways.
