The mission of IntegratED is to provide educators with a supportive community where they can collaborate to develop practical strategies for integrating technology into teaching and learning. IntegratED 2018 takes place at the Portland Airport Sheraton on February 22-23.

What if I am a vendor and I want to present?

These sessions are not intended for vendor applications. If you are a vendor and would like to present, you should visit the vendor sponsorship options page and register for the Sponsor Expert session choices.

Facilitator Expectations

What a facilitator applicant should expect?

Prior to your completion of the application you should know the following:

Each year IntegratED brings in presenters and facilitators to complete the professional development offerings. What is the difference between the two classifications?

To illustrate the difference between a presenter and facilitator I’ve used Dirk Funk's explanation.

  • Presenters are expert content bearers who transmit fixed information or content to recipients of knowledge.
  • Facilitators are guides to a learning destination with the goal to equip learners for self-development and continual learning.


Facilitators Presenters
Learners are Active/Passive Active Learners Passive Learners
Control of learning and center of responsibility Shared Presenter in control
Answers, “Why I need to know this?” Learners Presenters
Credibility Based on ability to create and sustain a supportive learning environment. Based on content knowledge, expertise, control of content and delivery.
Focus centered on Helping learners develop skills for knowledge acquisition. Establishing content knowledge in learners' minds.


Which role (presenter or facilitator) do I have the opportunity to apply for at IntegratED 2018?

At IPDX we have two thought provoking keynotes take on the role of presenter (although some of them in the past have played both roles masterfully). In addition, we have several workshops/sessions that are skillfully built by active learning facilitators.

For the purposes of this application you will be applying for the role of session facilitator.
