2021 Virtual Educator Symposium

February 8-25, 2021

A dynamic virtual experience for Virginia leaders, educators, and practitioners who support youth with disabilities.

About The Educator Symposium

Virginia educators, we hope you can come and interact with us during this 3-week symposium. Our team has built an experience that we think will fit our current situation, with self-paced modules you can complete whenever you want, plus live sessions where you can meet, discuss, ask questions, and connect with other educators and youth who are implementing self-determination practices. 

To receive access to the modules and live sessions, you must register for the event.

 

Intro Module

Start with an introduction to self-determination and the I’m Determined Project. This module will get all attendees to the same level of understanding so that you can make the most of the event.

Self-paced modules

Each week you will get access to one module focusing on a topic. This year’s topics are:

*Student Involvement in the IEP Process

*Self-Determination in the Classroom

*Post-Secondary Transition

More info on modules below.

 

Live Sessions

Live Sessions are opportunities for you to meet other educators and youth who are practicing self-determination skills. Each week there will be live sessions that relate to that week’s module topic.

Live session links will be available in the Canvas platform after everyone has registered.

 

Featured Module Topics

Each week runs from Monday-Thursday. You decide when to complete the module throughout that week. We encourage you to find others from your school or with similar roles to go through the modules with!

Modules contain resources, videos, and interactive opportunities that will leave you with the tools you need to start practicing self-determination in your classroom.
