Come Join Us...


The Access 4 Learning (A4L) Community, and its Special Interest Group the Student Data Privacy Consortium (SDPC) is partnering with numerous other educational organizations to bring you and your organization a set of Annual Meeting webinars that actually work in your calendar – no all-day blocks of time!

Connecting & Securing Effective Learning EcoSystems is a month of “tactical” data interoperability and privacy conversations with real-world strategies and examples to support the work of schools, states and marketplace providers.   It makes sense since the A4L Community is the ONLY place where end users and providers are addressing BOTH interoperability and privacy of student data.

Put in your calendar today and plan on joining us for five informative, interactive 90 minute sessions to find out from your peers how to ensure and support your own ‘connected & secure effective learning ecosystem ’.

This is not your typical set of virtual webinars.  You will receive “pre-session” resources, hear from practitioners in the field on what works and what challenges they have had in creating their ecosystems, how to use multiple standards together, effective privacy stewardship and even roll up your sleeves working sessions to create resources from the 3,000 member A4L collaborative.  You will walk away from sessions with tools and practices to immediately use in your own institution.

Now that IS a different type of Annual Meeting!
