Access to Education


  • Same great conference, new interactive platform - Access to Education 2020 is going virtual!

    To ensure the health of all attendees, the Access to Education 2020 conference will be held online, November 18 and 19, 2020. Plus, a pre-conference educator panel will be held on November 17, 2020 at 7:30 pm EST featuring previous PATINS Starfish Award recipients and a special #PatinsIcam Twitter Chat at 8:30 pm EST.

    While the platform is different, dedicated educators, who are focused on ensuring that every student has equitable access to the curriculum, will still come together to experience motivational keynotes, local and national presenter breakout sessions, opportunities to view the latest assistive technology, networking, and so much more!

    Sessions will be designed around the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework and Accessible Educational Materials (AEM). There are no vendors at this conference.

    If you have any questions, please email Jen Conti, PATINS Event Manager.
