Tuesday  |  Wednesday  |  Thursday


Join us at the Gaylord Opryland each evening (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday; 9-10pm, Delta Pavilion) for Campfire Gatherings. After the days events (and with ample time for you to go grab dinner first), we will be hosting themed get-togethers as a venue to meet with friends, start up new collaborations, or just unwind from a day packed with innovative ideas.


Tuesday Night: Crafting and Making

We will break out the knitting needles and crafting supplies and challenge the divide between crafting and ‘making.’ Knitting and crocheting experts from the Nashville area will join in to coach anyone who wants to learn a new skill, and they will also provide patterns for crafts that can be donated to local charities. Champion knitters are more than welcome to bring their own supplies, and we’ll have supplies on hand for those new to the endeavor.

We’ll also have the supplies to make swaps as part of our new Swap + Meet initiative.  

Can’t join us on Tuesday, but want to jump in on the crafting effort?  We’ll have the supplies available at the SWAP+MEET area inside the Exhibit Hall (Ryman Hall B1-B3, Conference Center Level 0) throughout the conference to give you a chance craft for a good cause.


Wednesday Night: Gaming

We’ll roll out the twenty-sided dice, shuffle the decks, and calibrate the joysticks for a night of games. Whether you’re a subject matter expert on role playing games or you want to try your hand at a virtual cow milking competition, we’ll have a game for you.


Thursday Night: IDEA Night: Inclusion, Diversity, Equity & Advocacy

Join us for a special networking event celebrating diversity and inclusion within our field, with a focus on the intentional support of all voices in online leadership.  Bring your colleagues for community, camaraderie, and new collaborations to support advocacy for equity in our field.
