Standard 75-minute concurrent sessions
These sessions are set in theater-style seating with a podium and screen at the front. Presenters should arrive 15 minutes before their scheduled session to set up their laptop at the podium.
Multiple tables will be set up in one room and presenters will be given a specific time to “host” their tables, share information, and respond to questions. Attendees move from table to table as they wish. Presenters should stay near their tables throughout the duration of their designated time, but their materials will be displayed throughout the entire day.
Ed Talk sessions
These sessions are along the lines of “TED Talks.” Three presenters share a 75-minute session. Each session will have a facilitator who will introduce each speaker, act as time keeper, and conduct a 15-minute Q&A session with the audience at the end.
For your convenience, we’ve developed a Powerpoint template for presenters. While use of this template is optional, it promotes a cohesive look throughout the Families Learning Conference.
We advise packing presentation materials in your luggage; however, you can ship directly to the FedEx store located at the hotel if needed. Please go to the FedEx website for more information.
Check in at Registration during the following hours:
Hotel self parking is $35 daily and valet is $41.34 daily.
