You must order any additional AV equipment directly from Freeeman AV and must pay Freeman directly. Complete the Presenters AV form to place your order. You may complete only one form if you are presenting multiple sessions, unless your AV requirements are different for each session.
All AV forms must be submitted by February 8, 2017. If you have changes or additions to your AV requirements aft ethis time or once on-site, there may be a charge for the changes.

You will receive an e-mail with instructions on how to upload your presentation materials (handouts) to the ASCD conference app on March 3, 2017.
The Reflection Pool will consist of multiple group meeting spaces that are designed to promote and support post-presentation meetings and work sessions. Our aim with the Reflection Pool is to give attendees a place to start drafting plans for implementation once they arrive back in their schools. If you would like to volunteer in the Reflection Pool, please respond to this short survey and indicate your preferred days(s) and time(s). You may also drop in at your leisure.
During your time in the Reflection Pool, you may engage with attendees in their discussions and offer feedback, or you may simply allow them to ask you questions about your research and/or practice.
A schedule listing all presenters and their assigned times will be published closer to the event date.
