Plenary Sessions are included as part of the Gold sponsorship of Tech Pizza. Please do not submit a Plenary session until you have confirmed your Gold sponsorship.

Sponsorship Details

Presentations

  • Plenary: 60 minute session to the full attendee group on a topic of your choosing. Each Gold sponsor provides a plenary session. Time slots chosen by sponsors, first come, first serve (see agenda above)
  • Speed Meeting: Quick presentations to a small group of attendees. The attendees will be assigned to a group. Every 8 minutes, groups will rotate so that in the course of an hour, you will meet every attendee. All Silver sponsors will present simultaneously.
    • Speed Meeting presentations will take place in the same room(s), and generally be at separate conference tables. Assume no projection (you can use your laptop if you like), no audio (it’ll be loud since there are multiple presentations happening), etc.

Duty of Care

COVID-19 Readiness: Keeping You Safe & Healthy

The leadership at Vita-Learn has developed the following Duty of Care for Tech Pizza which will help keep you safe when attending the event in person.

As of May 10, 2022

Vita-Learn is excited to continue to host in-person events this summer. Our concern for your health and safety is our top priority, and we want to make your experience at the meeting positive, and as professionally successful as in pre-COVID days. To that end, we are implementing the following guidelines that we hope will make you and your colleagues comfortable and safe. These guidelines are subject to change if new guidance is issued on, before, or during the conference by our host venues,  State of Vermont, the city of Burlington, the city of Springfield, or the CDC.

Guidelines:

  • All attendees must adhere to the following guidelines while participating in this event. Vita-Learn reserves the right to enforce these directives, including requiring individual attendees to leave the event for failure to comply with these rules.
  • All attendees must be fully vaccinated and boosted to participate in the event. Attendees will be required to submit this information in advance of physical check-in at the conference. Organizers will notify registrants as soon as possible if such measures are adjusted or amended.
  • You will be required to review and sign off on a waiver prior to attendance. The waiver will be included in the vaccination upload process.
    • Submission of your documentation as well as an electronic waiver acceptance will be done through the secure site, WellCheck. You will receive email/text messages with specific instructions prior to the event. 
    • As of May 10, 2022, participants who have already completed their WellCheck submission for a previous Vita-Learn event will need to acknowledge the Waiver here, but will not need to resubmit any COVID-19 documentation. 
    • If you have symptoms of COVID-19 or have tested positive for COVID-19 within 10 days of the event, you may not attend the conference.
    • If you may have been exposed to the coronavirus 10 days prior to the Event must not attend the Event unless they provide a negative PCR test taken within 3 days of check-in.
  • Masks are required in all indoor spaces. Masks may be removed while eating and drinking. 
  • Social distancing will be adhered to, when possible, in meeting spaces and in meal spaces.
  • Attendees should self-monitor their health.
    • If you begin to feel unwell during the event with symptoms consistent with COVID-19, out of an abundance of caution, we ask that you leave the conference, isolate yourself with others, notify Jeff Mao, and seek medical attention. If you test positive for COVID-19, please notify Jeff Mao so that Vita-Learn can follow up with contact tracing notifications to other attendees. Remember that many of our attendees teach and work with young students who may not have completed their vaccinations.
  • Hand sanitizer and masks will be available at at the registration desk if needed.

The staff at the registration desk will have a list of locations in the Burlington and Springfield areas where attendees can get COVID tests, if necessary.
