ITAC4 Digital Conference

This year, individuals and organizations around the world who are not able to join the conference in New York City, will be able to participate online through a live stream of plenary sessions, curated interviews and conversations, along with access to special web-only content. All of these online sessions will be archived on the ITAC website after the conference, so you can relive the excitement of this vibrant community long after the conference ends.

How can I engage with others at ITAC4 through the Digital Conference?

There are multiple ways to engage with ITAC4 online. Here are a few suggestions:

  • Get online and join ITAC4 to watch the live stream of keynote and plenary sessions.
  • Watch special web-only “backstage” content, including interviews with keynote presenters and conference delegates.
  • Watch the live stream with your friends and colleagues. Organizations around the world are planning Teaching Artist workshops and training sessions to coincide with the ITAC4 conference. They will watch plenary sessions together through the live stream, and then conduct their own breakout sessions and content specific workshops.
  • Tag #ITAC4NYC and follow @Itac_Conference on social media for updates.
