November 19 & 20, 2020

CTAHPERD Virtual Fall Conference 

Registration is Now Open!

Dear Members:

No matter your teaching situation this year, more than ever it is vitally important to stay connected and grow within our profession. As a Health, Dance or Physical Education specialist you are responsible to provide many new, engaging and innovative learning activities to increase student success and the effectiveness of your program. The CTAHPERD Virtual Fall Conference will provide a wide variety of engaging sessions and presentations to enhance your teaching practices. This unique professional development opportunity will allow you full access to all of our sessions without having to make difficult choices of only some, as in years past. Our partnership with Innovative CEU’s (ICEU), learning platform will allow you to complete sessions at your leisure. Upon completion of any and all session(s) you will receive a certificate of attendance as proof of your professional learning experience.

So, how does the CTAHPERD Virtual experience work?

The conference will be held over two days starting at 8:00 am Eastern Time, November 19, 2020. CTAHPERD has invited two dynamic keynote speakers who will present live at 8:00am each day. After the keynote’s presentations, our platform will provide a variety of pre-recorded and some other live sessions for you to choose throughout the day. You are welcome to come and go as you see fit and all sessions will be available to you for 30 days post conference if you do not view them all within the two-day period.
