For more information about the conference, check out the TYCA-SW Fall 2020 Newsletter and Janet Zadina’s website.

We only have 250 virtual seats for Janet Zadina’s sessions and 100 virtual seats for the other sessions. The first individuals and groups to claim their spots via the Registration Portal will be the first served.

If your department would like to remotely host or provide a social distanced room to reach more instructors, we would appreciate a lead contact person’s name, a list of attendees, and email addresses for each who attend. We suggest that this session can be used as a formal professional development opportunity for faculty in a time of social distancing.

If needed, TYCA-SW will send formal recognition of participation/attendance for the sessions. Registering groups should include names and email addresses for attendees to ensure they receive needed documentation. Email addresses will strictly be used for links to attend this TYCA-SW session and to confirm the links for this event.
