We Conference Different.

An Entire Conference Totally Online.

Participate from home.

As this conference is 100% online, you can participate from the comfort of your living room anytime during the conference window. You can watch, pause, and replay any presentation.

The BEST presenters.

We’ve invited some of the best presenters in the CI business who will share with you their knowledge and expertise. Each presenter will have their own Q&A area to engage with you.

No schedule conflicts.

Because all of the presentations are recorded, there are no scheduling conflicts. You can watch the presentations in any order, at any time during the conference window.

Real students.

We’ve gathered real teachers with real students in real classrooms and videotaped them for your viewing pleasure. See for yourself why CI students are some of the best students around.

What is Comprehensible Online?

Comprehensible Online is an online conference dedicated to bringing together highly-skilled CI presenters and teachers who want to learn about comprehensible input and implement it in their classrooms.

Comprehensible Online is innovating a new format in conferences and professional development with a 100% online experience. All presentations are videotaped so that participants can watch, pause, and rewatch at any time during the conference window. Because of the online video format, there are no conflicts with presentation schedules. Participants are able to participate in all presentations without the fear of missing one scheduled at the same time—something not possible in traditional conferences.

Comprehensible Online will not only offer presentations on TPRS/CI activities, reading strategies & activities, classroom management, and grading & assessment but also offer views into CI teachers’ classrooms where you can witness CI in action in real classrooms with real teachers and real students.

Each presentation will have a discussion area where participants can actively engage with each other, pose questions, and interact with the presenter. All of these discussions will be visible to all participants.

We’re excited to bring you this unique conference experience and are confident that you’ll come away with a better understanding of comprehensible-input strategies and practices that you’ll be able to bring back to your classroom and enhance your instruction.
