edACCESS has held an annual conference each year since 1992. We use the peer conference model, making each edACCESS conference small, responsive, and participant-driven.
The peer conference model is based on the Conferences That Work model, developed by co-founder, Adrian Segar. The goal of a peer conference is to provide an experience that is maximally meaningful and useful for each individual attendee, and the peer conference process encourages active participation—each attendee affects what takes place. Through four days of presentations, panels, roundtables and focused discussion, our conferences address pressing issues in the education arena, while also allowing time for informative chat sessions, vendor exhibits, and a lot of fun. At an edACCESS conference, attendees leave with hands-on, tested solutions to technology challenges, ideas about approaches used at other schools, and a network of technology “gurus” with whom they can discuss topics in the future.
