Navigating DLAC

Table talks, coffee conversations, Pecha Kuchas, short talks, poster sessions, workshops…with all the interactivity and moving around, a little pre-planning will go a long way!

We’re here to help.

There IS a lot to understand, so we have created several different tools and resources to help you think about topics, speakers, and session types. We suggest that you look at all options to better understand what will work best for you.

  • First, the video below provides a main overview and may be a good starting point.

  • Second, if you haven’t already downloaded the mobile app, please do so. We will not have a printed program so the app and website will be your main tools.

  • You can download here, or by using a QR code when we are in Austin, or by searching the app store on your phone for “DLAC” or “digital learning annual”. The web-based app interface also provides tools for searching and creating your schedule.

  • This new “Navigating DLAC” pdf provides a view into the agenda through a lens of times and session types.

  • The detailed program page on the website provides the full descriptions of sessions in a browsing-friendly format, and pairs well with the conference at a glance page.

  • Reviewing the hotel floor plan may help. The opening and closing plenaries will be in the Texas ballroom, which is on the second floor. Many other breakout sessions will be in the Big Bend and Hill Country rooms, which are on the first floor. Workshops and some panel discussions are in the Foothills rooms, which are on the 17th floor. Walking between Big Bend, Hill Country, and Texas rooms will take no more than a couple of minutes, but getting up to the Foothills may take 5 minutes, which is why we put the longer sessions there. Finally, the Zilker Ballroom will hold the exhibit booths and posters—and don’t forget to check out the Zilker Lounge, our best conversation and networking area, on the walk over to the Ballroom. A floor plan will be provided with your badge and is in the app, so no need to print this out!

Finally, we will have a DLAC information booth at the reception on Monday and Tuesday afternoons, so please visit us with any questions!
