Powerful, Accessible Learning

Session formats allow presenters and participants to interact and share ideas in one of eight ways designed to create active useful learning experiences.

Thought Leaders


TCEA Thought Leaders represent and array of expertise throughout education. Selected to give you new perspectives on teaching and learning, these inspiring presenters are sure to bolster your professional learning with powerful tools, as well as remarkable personal and professional insights and experiences. Be sure to catch these must-see sessions.

Solution Circles


Build and expand your learning networks with peers taking on similar initiatives. During these facilitated, roundtable conversations, we will discuss common problems, explore solutions, and share resources.

Exhibitor Showcase Presentations


These 60-minute sessions are presented by exhibiting companies to further explore the products and services available in the Exhibit Hall in an in-depth, informative, and non-sales atmosphere.

Hands-on Experiences


Hands-on virtual experiences are intended to provide an in-depth review of the content being delivered and help participants discover more of a topic than a standard convention presentation. These experiences may be content- or platform-focused, and may not require specific devices to participate.

Networking and Special Events


This format allows you to develop a long-lasting network of peers with common interests and goals through social activities. In addition, this format allows you to experience education through gamification, app smashing, and events that develop deep learning in unique ways.

Panel Discussions


In this type of presentation, a panel, consisting of 3–5 people (including the submitting moderator), presents their views on a common theme, issue, or question, and then discusses them with the audience.

Robert Knight Exhibit Hall


At our innovative virtual exhibit hall, you can discover the best of the best in education, technology, and innovative learning. For more information on the exhibit hall, including a list of participating vendors, click here.

Self-paced Learning


Prior to and during the live event, TCEA will release packages of on-demand content to experience in a self-paced format. Join the Twitter chat discussions during dedicated self-paced content timeframes, and collaborate with a virtual watch party.

Poster Sessions


This format encourages meaningful conversations regarding ideas, implementation, tools, and projects that attendees can immediately incorporate in their classroom, campus, or district. Sessions are grouped around a common theme, such as STEM, leadership, or coding.
