Last year we hosted our first digital conference. This year, we’re bringing it back—and there’s something for everyone. We know that there’s major change happening in every corner of education, so we’ve partnered with education’s leading voices to articulate today’s trends and predict what’s next. But, this online education conference isn’t complete without your voice. 

Make sure to join us live for our keynote addresses, designed to provoke new ways of thinking about education and the role of the learner today. Adora Svitak will bring the perspective of a college student to the main stage, drawing on her experience as a student voice advocate, TED speaker, and Huffington Post contributor on Wednesday July 22 at 9:15AM Eastern. On Thursday, July 23 at 9:00AM Eastern Peter Diamandis will drive breakthrough thinking with new perspectives on innovation and education. He was recently named one of Fortune’s Top 50 World Leaders and we couldn’t be more excited to hear what he’s thinking about education today.

Check out the below tracks and pick your sessions—don’t worry—you can mix and match to create your perfect schedule. Live streaming will kick off on June 20 at 9:00AM Eastern and we’ll be adding content daily through Thursday July 23. Miss something you wanted to see? Have no fear.

    The closed-captioning on the replay is impressive. As a realtime captioner (CART provider), I naturally looked for the closed-captioning toggle during the live presentation, but could not locate the toggle switches. However, I noticed that immediately following the presentations, the very clean captions appeared with the recorded video. (Compliments to the realtime captioner!) Thank you BlackBoard for providing the closed-captioning, especially for a conference on reimagining education.
