Conferences

There are many conferences you can attend virtually or in person. Clayton R. Wright maintains an excellent international conference list of Educational Technology & Education Conferences.

You'll want to exercise your own due diligence about which conferences you may want to attend or submit a paper to.

We suggest you assure yourself that the conference is legitimate by checking its website for credible information:

  • dates and locations
  • conference organizers
  • conference sponsors
  • fees
  • submission dates
  • editorial committee
  • program and venue details

If you're not certain whether a conference is legitimate, consider using the Think, Check, Attend tool to confirm its academic credentials.
