Teaching and Learning Livestream

  • We are pleased to announce a new feature for the 2017 TASA Midwinter Conference that provides an opportunity for registered attendees to extend their learning experience to district and/or campus administrators and teachers back home through an online livestream.

    The focus of the sessions selected for livestreaming is on teaching and learning, and the sessions are offered at no additional cost to conference attendees; simply provide the passcode, provided to registered attendees via the Midwinter Conference Daily e-newsletter, to teachers, principals, and other members of your leadership team and direct them to this webpage, where they will be able to view four key Midwinter Conference sessions in real-time at the listed times or on-demand from the Midwinter Archive.
