What is an Educational Session?

Educational Sessions include those sessions that were formerly known as Concurrent Sessions and Sessions of Special Interest. They must fit into one of five strands as well as one of three session learning formats. They offer value to the conference by means of education, information, or professional development to attendees.

All educational sessions are listed here with their descriptions!

What are strands?

Strands are similar to the educational tracks featured in previous years! You can learn more about strands here--please make sure to expand the Strands section!

How do you define “learning formats”?

All Educational Sessions must fall into one of three learning formats: lecture, panel, or experiential learning. Expand the "Learning Formats" heading on this page to learn more.

Who decides what is in the conference program?

All sessions are evaluated based on merit by qualified reviewers, and Educational Sessions are blind-reviewed. Proposal submitters were informed of their proposal's status on January 17th, 2020. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us at
