A virtual, blended learning experience

We practice what we preach: all sessions are available online in a blended learning format. In addition, to live sessions on June 21-22, 2021, you'll be able to interact with presenters and attendees asynchronously to build your knowledge and network and improve your instructional leadership skills.


Not just a conference. Also a competition!

We believe learning should be active and fun! We're rewarding the most engaged participants with prizes throughout the conference. The more you participate in each session, the more points you'll earn on the Sibme Leaderboard.

"I really appreciated that I could go back and watch sessions that I was unable to watch the first time. I also enjoyed that it was digital, so I could enjoy the conference from the comfort of home. I feel like finding conferences with so many amazing speakers close to home can be difficult, and it was great I didn't have to travel and stay the night anywhere."
