We hope the following can answer your questions. Any others, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call or text Kevin Walsh at 248-408-6715.
Q. Are the 2021 Teacher and Student Symposia on-campus or virtual this year?
A. Both! Our hosts, Motion Picture Institute, can safely and easily share up to 80 teachers on December 3rd and 120 students on December 10th (reduced capacity from our normal attendance maximum-size). We will provide registered schools access to the Zoom links for sessions that may be attended virtually. Note: Not all sessions will be able to be carried virtually, but each block will have at least one-session that can be joined remotely.
Q. Are masks required?
A. Yes. Aside from food-breaks, masks are required for the duration of the session.
Q. How many students can I bring?
A. We are asking schools to limit students to 10 per school through November 20th, then we'll notify registered schools about extra room.
Q. Will the sessions be posted ahead of time?
A. Yes. We'll have the schedule posted soon via a link on this page and other locations once we've finalized our presenters. Sessions are subject to change.
Q. Can teachers get SCECHs (State Continuing Ed Credit Hours) for the December 3rd Teacher symposium--even via Zoom?
A. Yes. Once again, we have been approved through Oakland Schools for up to 5.5 hours of SCECHs. Remote attendees must log-out and log-in between each session to accurately register their attendance in each session.
