Welcome to SITE 2018!

Posted by Denise Schmidt-Crawford on March 20 2018 at 3:50 p.m.

I am excited you are joining us for SITE 2018 in the nation’s capital, Washington DC. For 29 years, the SITE conference has become the place where teacher educators and others interested in technology and teacher education report research findings, share innovative practices, and network with colleagues from all over the world. SITE 2018 will not disappoint, as we have a program full of motivating speakers, exciting professional development sessions, and worthwhile networking opportunities.

Be sure to take full advantage of the “total” SITE conference experience, with events scheduled from morning until night! We have a great collection of pre-conference workshops, keynotes, invited speakers, concurrent sessions and roundtable discussions – all focused on moving the dialogue and scholarship focused on technology in teacher education forward. Plan to attend the evening events which include an opening reception “Disco Night in DC” on Tuesday, the Posters/Demonstrations on Wednesday, and a movie screening or sightseeing riverboat tour on Thursday night. You have several opportunities to see why SITE is referred to as the “Friendly Society”!

SITE has 32 special interest groups (SIGs)! Try to attend at least one SIG meeting so you can meet colleagues with similar scholarship interests and learn about the many initiatives and good work being done by these important groups. Your involvement with our SIGs is key to having a successful SITE conference experience. Also, be sure you complete your Academic Experts profile and use it to connect with others and to plan your daily conference itinerary. SITE 2018 will be ‘paperless’ this year, so it will be important to plan ahead using Academic Experts!

We value your membership and thank you for attending SITE 2018. Please let others know what you were up to during the conference by using #SITEconf!
