2014 Global Education Conference - Day Two!




Tuesday, November 18th, is day two of the fifth annual Global Education Conference. We had a great opening day of sessions and keynotes, and the recordings of any sessions that have taken place are accessible on the conference recordings page.

The list of Tuesday's sessions, in US-Eastern Standard Time, is below. Unlike our opening day, Day two actually starts at midnight, US-Eastern Time! To see the the full conference schedule in your own time zone, with the direct links to session rooms, go to the conference schedule page. Follow the conference through Twitter using the hashtag #globaled14. Session recordings are posted immediately following each session.

We do still need more volunteers to help moderate sessions! Sign up and information here. It's a ton of fun, you'll be doing some good, and you'll have the undying gratitude of the conference organizers!
