2021 I&TLC Session Schedule

Full schedule

This year, we offered as many sessions as possible in a hybrid format. Our hope was that attendees could attend virtually, in person, or both, as they felt comfortable and able. All concurrent sessions scheduled in Varsity Hall II had in-person presenters. We we encouraged in-person attendees to bring a personal device so they could engage with colleagues virtually as well as in person.
