Addressing the needs of all learners

2021 Virtual SIMposium 

Technology Enhanced Professional Learning

Difficult times force innovation and expansion of our skills. We look forward to sharing what we have learned during the Times of Covid that can help move SIM forward in online environments. 

Although we will miss seeing you in person, this online conference presents us with tantalizing possibilities, like hosting a Keynote Speaker we could not have brought to Lawrence, and taking advantage of synchronous live time together and asynchronous at-your-own pace learning. 

With this in mind, the 2021 SIMposium will provide a SIMposium Cue Up running from June 21 to July 12, that will enable our shortened synchronous time online together to be engaging, purposeful, and aimed toward sharing experience. Asynchronous prework through Canvas learning management system will give you an opportunity to delve into offerings of interest to you at your own pace and allow presenters to Cue-up their synchronous presentations July 13th and 14th.  

An optional synchronous conference day on July 15 will offer sessions about specific strategies and routines, perfect for Micro-credentialed Specialists who want to get started with a new LS or CER, and the Professional Developer who wants to refresh knowledge.  You are welcome to invite a teacher/guest to attend this day or for the entire conference.
