Conferences and Professional Learning

The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) conferences (n.d.) have been an anchor in my professional learning. Traditionally I attended the ISTE conference at the end of every June from 2012 until the pandemic. While there were many conferences on blended learning and microcredentials which influenced me the relationships I found and nurtured over the years were most impactful.

One relationship was with a vendor whoeventually moved to another vendor we did not use, but because of our strong and continuing ISTE conference meet-ups we stayed connected. She helped me connect with the ISTE Conference Review Committee from 2015+. This connection allowed me to review 30-40 applications per year. From these applications, I was able to get a sense of what was happening in the educational technology community very well. I was also able to establish new relationships with other reviewers and make deeper connections to other educational technology experts nationally.
