2021 MATSOL Virtual Conference

The 2021 MATSOL Virtual Conference brings together educators of English Learners from across the Commonwealth of Massachusetts -- and beyond -- to share expertise and best practices. 

Conference Recordings

Registered participants have access to conference recordings via the Whova conference platform, which will be open until Sep 30, 2021. We are working to share the recordings but it will take 2-3 weeks to upload them all. Please look for an email update when the all recordings are posted. Thank you for your patience. 

Use the email address submitted with your conference registration to create a Whova account and log onto the web platform or mobile app. Please look for an email form MATSOL (via Whova) with directions. Once you're signed up, you will be taken directly to the conference!

* If you are not registered, we are accepting online registrations with credit card payment ONLY. Registrations must be received by 8:00 am on Tuesday, June 1 to access the first session of the conference. Registrations received later will be processed daily as soon as we are able.

* If you need assistance, write to [email protected] for the fastest response. Include your full name, school district or affiliation, email address, and a description of the problem or error message. Do not call MATSOL. Thank you.
