The updated Program is now available! Any final changes will be listed in the conference platform, PheedLoop, as a digital errata sheet.
Please note that all times listed in the Program are in Eastern time.
While we had hoped to use this space to welcome you to Montreal, we’re still thrilled you’re joining us for NCPH 2022 in virtual spaces. This conference was originally planned as a hybrid in-person and virtual model, with the in-person conference in Montreal in March and the virtual component scheduled for May 4-6, but the Omicron COVID-19 variant had other plans. If you’d like to read more about our thinking on the in-person cancellation and pivot to a more robust virtual conference, you can do so via our blog post at https://ncph.org/history-at-work/why-ncph-is-going-virtual-again/.
NCPH 2022 will be primarily hosted on the PheedLoop platform, which will be familiar to anyone who joined us last year for NCPH 2021. PheedLoop uses Zoom integration, which makes it familiar to attendees and presenters alike and allows for virtual sessions that prioritize the flexibility, interactivity, and dialogue that you expect from NCPH content. We’ll also be working with the team from Hutchinson Design Group again; an invaluable resource to us, they’ll provide additional planning and tech support for NCPH’s small staff.
Sessions will be available in three formats. Most of the scheduled sessions in the Schedule at a Glance in the front of the program are fully live. Some, marked with two asterisks, are “Simulive”; the session content itself is pre-recorded, but presenters will be on-hand when the session airs to talk to you and answer questions in the PheedLoop chat. Others, found in the Pre-Recorded section of this Program on page 25, will be available asynchronously for the duration of the conference and beyond.
You’ll notice that some mainstays of the NPCH conference, like our Speed Networking event and our usual run of workshops, aren’t in this Program. We’ve decided to rethink content that isn’t well-suited to the virtual space, or which we think you’ll have more capacity for at a different time. Keep an eye on NCPH’s social media for announcements of additional programming in the rest of 2022!
