Please check in with Jeff at the registration desk when you arrive between 8 and 8:30.
Our official day at the MACUL Conference on Friday, March 22nd will run from 8:30 until 2. We recommend that you attend the Closing Keynote (Steve Dembo from Discovery Schools on “Building Bolder Schools”) from 2:30-3:30 if you can stay. We expect that all of you will attend at least two presentations, though we also encourage you to make time to visit the exhibits.
Remember that although we have paid for you to be there as a group, you do not need a name tag or to check in at the MACUL desk. Should someone inquire, identify yourself as being from the UM School of Education.

To gain admittance to the exhibits, you need one of our two floating exhibit passes. To ask for one or to return the exhibit pass, check in with your classmates or via one of these means:

- Text Jeff (see above)

- Tweet with #smac504 as the hashtag

Recommended Dress Code:

School clothes (e.g., khakis and a shirt with a collar). Avoid Casual Friday temptations like a hoodie, t-shirt, or denim.

Here's a link to the MACUL Conference Program with some recommendations from us included--plan ahead and choose the sessions that you want to attend. You will not get a program at the conference ... try putting this in your Evernote or Dropbox account if you have a smartphone so you can access it during the conference!
