Experience the New ATD TK

Do you want to be the person who awkwardly says “no” when someone asks if you went to the preconference?

Meet up, learn up, and tech up at the TechKnowledge preconference! We’ve handpicked some awesome education courses that will get your brain cogs spinning before the main event. The sessions will be more intimate, more interactive, and possibly more fun (shh, don’t tell the non-preconference attendees). You’ll network with peers who also see the benefits of attending early. And you will earn a certificate to show your pride, or you can use it for bragging rights—your choice.

Here are the preconference tracks you can take:

  • Education programs designed to teach the latest instructional strategies that promote application and organizational impact. Course topics include e-learning, instructional design, and learning technologies. Learners earn a certificate of completion.
  • A one-day workshop that demystifies how the brain really works and what makes learning stick.

Don’t miss out! Register for a TechKnowledge preconference ASAP. Space is limited.

These programs are not included in the full conference registration and you must register separately. To purchase a preconference program and a TK conference registration, you will need to add both to your shopping cart during the checkout process. If you have already registered for TechKnowledge and would like to add a preconference program, please contact our professional development specialists at 855.404.2783.

Preconference learning programs are one-, two-, three-, and four-day classes that run February 1-4. All programs require an additional fee.
