Your session description(s) along with participant outcomes will be loaded in the app. If you would like to view the information, please use the SESSION BROWSER. If you need to make changes, please communicate the change(s) to Renee Glasby,  CEC reserves the right to edit all materials submitted.

Information on recording your session was included in an email sent the week of December 21, 2020.

Please be sure to use a platform that includes captioning. We will have individuals online that need captions. Please use one of the following options. Links with helpful tips for adding captions are shown below.

  If you prefer a different platform, that is fine. Please include captions.   

The Whova app organizers will send all registered attendees download instructions on March 4, 2021. You have been assigned a date and time for your presentation. We encourage you to be logged into the Whova app on that date and time to monitor the Chat and Q&A boxes that will be open for attendees’ comments/questions. You may see comments and questions prior to and after your assigned presentation date and time. Please check back often to add to the conversation between March 8 and May 31, 2021. Many attendees will need to view sessions as time permits rather than being online during regular conference hours. To access the chat and Q&A for your session, simply click on the agenda tab, then find your day and time and click on your session title. The chat and Q&A will be on the right-hand side of the page.

There is an embargo period and recordings cannot be shared until after March 13, 2021. This will allow CEC Convention & Expo registered attendees to have access first. Presenters are welcome to share their recorded presentations publicly after March 13, 2021.
