April 15-17th, 2021

Registration is free of charge

The 61st annual CTEBVI conference will be held online, April 15-17, 2021.

Our conference brings blind and visually impaired students and their families together with the professionals who meet their educational and rehabilitation needs.

The event features 80 professional Workshops, Youth and Parent Institutes for students and families, and a Virtual Exhibit Hall to showcase innovative products and resources.

It is a unique opportunity for teachers, transcribers, students, families, and vendors to come together, to share techniques and best practices, and to build a supportive community.

how will it work?

All conference events will be held on Zoom, and links will be emailed to registered attendees prior to the beginning of the conference.

Since we are not able to be together in person this year, we've adopted Slack to support the vibrant CTEBVI community outside of our scheduled conference events. Slack is where we can have casual conversations, trade contact info, get announcements, and ask questions. Think of it as the hotel corridor outside the workshop sessions, or the café where you bump into a long-time colleague or make a new connection.

We've put together a Virtual Conference Guide to help you get up and running, and to answer questions about how to prepare for the conference weekend.
