We work with our membership to invest time and money back into the educational communities we serve. OETC organizes and hosts events that support and connect educators, administrators and leaders.
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.
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.
Prior to your completion of the application you should know the following:
To illustrate the difference between a presenter and facilitator I’ve used Dirk Funk's explanation.
|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.|
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.
All who submit applications will receive an acceptance or rejection letter via email.
The following rubric is used as an application scoring aid for the IntegratED Portland Facilitators All Call. All interested educators (teachers and/or administrators) must complete the application form to have the opportunity to be selected as an IPDX17 session facilitator.
