How Online Conferences Work Collaboration for Preschool Language and Literacy
Learning—Whenever and Wherever
You're bound to love the benefits of attending an online conference! Online conferences are:
- Convenient. Listen to sessions whenever and wherever—even on mobile devices!
- Comprehensive. Get relevant, apply-today information and techniques that will help you work with children better than before.
- Concise. These short, 1-hour sessions easily fit in your schedule!
- Effortless. Relax—there's no test! Sit back, listen to the lectures, participate in the live chats, and earn lots of CEUs!
Plus, you'll have access to lectures, discussions, course handouts, presenters, and other participants—without the trouble and expense of travel. All you need is a device with Internet access.
To get a better sense of the online conference environment, check out our Welcome and Orientation.
This online conference includes:
- Recorded lectures—available on demand while the conference is in session. Unlike in-person conferences with concurrent sessions, you can "attend" all the lectures!
- A discussion thread related to each lecture. Post your comments and questions, and get reactions from other conference participants and presenters.
- Live, text-based chats with presenters. During these scheduled 1-hour chats, you can interact directly with presenters.
- Handouts and other resources. Download and print or save handouts from all the lectures, as well as related resource documents.
- Networking opportunities. Post a professional profile and find others with similar professional interests and specialties.
How To Access
Online conferences cannot be accessed prior to the first day of the event. Paid registrants will receive an email with detailed instructions for logging in and accessing the conference materials on or around the first day. Beginning on the first day, you can also find instructions for logging in on the conference main page.
Note: Online conferences work differently than webinars and other ASHA Professional Development courses. You do not access online conferences through the Enrolled tab in your ASHA Learning Center. Rather, online conferences appear in your ASHA Account under "ASHA Courses and Orders" beginning on the first day of the event.
