Ready for an insightful, discovery-rich experience at ATA18? Our education team is putting final touches on our best education program yet! Check back in December for our full program planner. We're rolling out new and enhanced programming formats - see our session formats below! 

Pre-Conference Workshops

A supplemental hands-on session offered in 3-or 4-hour segments that offer a personal, in-depth exploration of a particular topic, tool or resource in a smaller group environment. Attendees are required to pre-register and pay additional fees.


Seminars are 60-minute in length, and may have a single presenter or a lead presenter with up to three co-presenters. These sessions are to inform and educate participants on a specific clinical, scientific or other telehealth topic related to one of the conference tracks.

Learning Labs

New this year: Learning labs are 75-minute interactive and experiential sessions designed to engage a group of participants in an activity related to one of the conference tracks. Learning labs are not your typical didactic sessions! Presenters will guide participants through a concrete challenge, working collaboratively to design a meaningful solution and help them leave with relevant deliverables. These labs are designed to highlight applied teaching and learning within an active learning space.

Facilitated Roundtable Discussion

Roundtables provide an opportunity for informal conversation on a specified topic. Each roundtable is hosted by an expert on the subject and facilitated by an ATA representative.

ePoster Presentations

ATA's ePoster presentation provide an opportunity for presenters to share their timely, innovative information and findings on original research and/or projects. Presentations will be displayed on a screen at a kiosk where attendees can stand for viewing and interaction. There will be multiple electronic posters being presented at the same time in the area.

Ignite Sessions

New this year: Presenters will have exactly 5 minutes to present during ATA18 Ignite Sessions using 20 slides. Slides will automatically advance every 15 seconds. Ignite talks are limited to future topics and will be presented in the exhibit hall.
