Instructional Technology Strategies Conference
through Sheraton Portland Airport

OETC would like to invite you to attend our annual Instructional Technology Strategies Conference.

The Instructional Technology Strategies Conference is an opportunity for educators to think, explore, and develop strategies to enhance student achievement through the effective use of technology.

The subject is technology in the classroom, but the focus is on you. ITSC is specifically designed to be an active learning conference. Participants come away from ITSC not with a high level overview, but specific strategies and increased opportunities for education-related connections. Whether you are a teacher looking to improve K-20 classroom instruction or an administrator looking to support technology in your school or district, you will come away from ITSC with solutions that can be implemented right away.

Balancing tradition with 21st century innovation. We held on to the values that past attendees covet (active learning time in three-hour workshops, 90-minute sessions, two thought provoking keynotes, two vendor expert sessions, four quality meals and exhibit halls) and at the same time have added innovative opportunities (Unconference, Soiree of Slides, Schedule App that publishes in all platforms at once) to play and/or dive deep into the education questions that consume us.

If you want to learn, question, create, and engage in meaningful, authentic professional development then our conference is the right opportunity for you!
