Below you will find a schedule for all three breakout workshop periods. For each, please choose one to be part of. Remember you will have access to recordings for every session offered at this event through September 15, 2021. If you have any issues while joining or need additional help the morning of the event, please contact us at:  [email protected], or call/text 310-739-4394.

Please try and join your session at least 2-3 minutes prior to the start time. Resources from the sessions will be posted in the chat rooms and located on the “D & C Symposium resources page, which will be emailed to you next week. Enjoy the training!

PLEASE BE AWARE: We had to cancel both sessions led by Clint Rodriguez due to an unforeseen personal issue. You will still have 6 sessions to choose from in each breakout period.

** FOR WASHINGTON STATE EDUCATORS ONLY: If you are in need of clock hours, we recommend watching the following two sessions (both offered in Breakout 3) as recordings and not attending live: Digitizing D & C AND Coordinating the Coordinators. While both incredible sessions, they are the only two not approved for live clock hours during the Symposium. You will have full access to both video and all others the others, for six months following the live portion of the training.
