Conference and Pre-Conference Institute attendees will receive an attendance certificate electronically approximately one to two weeks after the event. ASCD does not provide continuing education credits (CEUs) for the ASCD Empower18 conference. Clock hours are awarded only for participation in a Pre-Conference Institute. This certificate includes 5.5–16.5 clock hours that you can use toward continuing education credit in most states.
Selected colleges and universities currently offer graduate credit.
Although ASCD does not provide continuing education credits for attending ASCD Empower18, we offer badge scanning for all concurrent sessions (excluding general sessions) in order to provide you with a list of sessions you attended during the conference. You can submit this list of sessions to your state department to receive renewal credit or give this list to your principal as documentation of the educational content you participated in here at the conference. This is a great record of the meaningful professional learning you acquired while attending ASCD Empower18!
Look for volunteers with barcode scanners outside of each session. Be sure to scan your badge as you enter each session. Simply place the barcode on your name badge under the scanner until you hear a beep (similar to scanning an airline boarding pass). The volunteer will confirm they see your name on the screen.
Approximately one to two weeks after the conference, all registered attendees will receive an e-mail with instructions to log in, view the sessions attended, and print an attendance certificate. You'll be able to access your session attendance records for two years.
Please ensure that ASCD has your correct e-mail address to ensure timely delivery of your attendance certificate and list of attended sessions. You can call our Service Center at 1-800-933-2723, send us an e-mail, or stop by the registration area while in Boston to update your e-mail address in person.
Bring your team and save when you register as a group!
Attendees must be 18 years of age or older to attend ASCD Empower18 and the Pre-Conference Institutes.
