ASCD Virtual Events

When you attend ASCD's virtual conferences, you'll have a front-row seat to each presenter and the ability to engage with the presenters and your peers in real time—all from the comfort of your own home. You'll also be able to watch every session, whether it's one you watched before or one you missed, at your leisure after the event. Save the dates for our half-day symposiums, where you'll deep dive into the topics that matter the most to educators today. Gather with your peers and learn the strategies and skills you need to teach and lead at the ASCD Leadership Summit or our ASCD Annual Conference. Priced from $49–149, each meeting offers a certificate option for an additional $25.
