Welcome to Atlanta

New This Year: Attendance Tracking

    Although ASCD does not provide continuing education credits (CEUs), this year, we are offering 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 development you acquired while attending ASCD 2016! All registered attendees will also receive a Certificate of Attendance just for being here.
    Look for a barcode scanner on a table outside of each session. Be sure to scan your badge as you enter each session. Simply place the barcode on your name badge on the table under the scanner until you hear a beep (similar to scanning an airplane boarding pass). Be sure to confirm that you see your name on the screen.
    By April 11, all registered attendees will receive an e-mail with instructions to log in, view the sessions attended and print an attendance certificate! IMPORTANT: please ensure ASCD has your correct e-mail address. While in Atlanta, be sure and visit our On-Site Registration desk (GWCC, Level 1, Registration Hall) to update your e-mail address, or call our Service Center at 1-800-933-2723, press 1. You'll be able to access your session attendance records for two years.
