How do the Online Conferences work?
The Online Conferences are not merely a substitute for “live” conferences. Rather, they are a re-imagination of what a teachers’ conference can be. They utilize audio files of lectures, slideshows of student work, and training films that allow participants to closely follow a master teacher’s detailed approach to Form Drawing or painting, games or songs, and demonstrations of Physics or Chemistry. Lecturers are not bound by the 90-minute limit of a live conference presentation, so they are free to take as much time as they need to range broadly and delve deeply into a subject. The online lectures are then divided into very digestible 15-20 minute segments so that any content that may have been missed can easily be found again. Imagine being able to “pause” and “replay” a lecture as often as needed, while taking notes on your word processor as you listen!
And how much do they cost?
No other teacher conferences offer as much content as the Online Conferences, and no other teacher conferences give teachers 14 days in which to participate at their own pace. These are also the most affordable teacher conferences in the world, with fees ranging from USD $250 for the Grades One and Two Online Conferences to USD $350 for the Grade Seven Online Conference.

Teachers participate in the Online Conferences from their home or school computer (or Wi-Fi capable mobile device) and that means there are no expenses incurred for travel, accommodations, or meals. A teacher taking part in an Online Conference, rather than a live conference, can save anywhere from USD $500 to USD $1000.
