Workshop & Learning Lab Schedules

You have received your workshop times and locations in previous correspondence. If you have any questions or have misplaced the earlier messages you can locate the session information on the conference website at:

If you need to submit changes, add photos/bios/handouts, or make corrections, visit the workshop submission tool, login and update. 
Note that any changes submitted after April 23,
2018 might not be reflected in the on-site program/guide.

Workshop Handouts & Presentations

We are including the workshop evaluations in our mobile app rather than the paper copies. We ask that you include the attached slide at the end of your presentation or if you do not have a power point, PLEASE REMIND ALL ATTENDEES TO COMPLETE SURVEYS IN THE MOBILE APP (below is a link for both a PowerPoint template and the Evaluation Reminder slide by itself). We base our selection of workshops on these reviews, and need attendee feedback to ensure quality content.

If you need to submit changes, add photos/bios/handouts, or make corrections, visit the workshop submission tool, login and update.

During Your Workshop

Should you have an issue with your room set up, please check with one of the attendants outside of your  session room for assistance.

If you have any technical difficulties during your session please ask someone in the back of the room to grab an audio visual tech in the hallway. We will have audio visual techs positioned in each of the hallways and will have LTEN staffers roaming the hallways as well. We do ask that you put the room back in order for the next presenter.

Audio Visual for Workshops

LTEN provides the following A/V package for each workshop at no cost:

  • One table for handouts
  • One flipchart with markers
  • One screen, one LCD projector and stand
  • One lavaliere wireless microphone

If you would like additional AV beyond this, please click here to place your order.

Learning Lab Room Set-Up

Theater Style Seating includes:
A monitor, flip chart and one lavalier microphone. Presenters should bring their presentation on a memory stick.

Due to tight timing between Learning Labs, we ask that presenters take any additional questions or extended conversations outside of the Lab in order to allow the next presenter time to set-up.
