SITE Interactive 2021 is the fall online-only conference of the Society for Information Technology and Teacher Education (SITE). In 2020, SITE’s traditional annual conference rapidly pivoted to an online format as an emergency response to COVID-19. Spurred by this success, the Friendly Society added an entirely new, online-only conference for our global members to attend each fall!
The autumnal SITE Interactive is distinct from the annual spring SITE Conference by spotlighting the improvement of practice and mentoring. SITE Interactive’s new submission categories reflect this distinct purpose, with sessions delivered in a highly interactive manner to model best practices that can be adopted by participants. SITE Interactive will also provide mentoring opportunities for graduate students and early-career faculty.
Everyone is invited to attend and participate in this fall SITE event! Make the most of the numerous opportunities to network with leaders in the field of teacher education and technology. Join us, share your ideas, and explore best practices for in-person, online, and blended teaching and learning.
The SITE Interactive Online Conference invites proposals from the introductory through advanced levels on topics related to best practices regarding the use of information technology in teacher education, and improving instruction and mentoring using information technology in:
- In-person, online, and/or blended environments
- Undergraduate and graduate preservice and in-service Teacher Education
- Faculty & Staff Professional Development
- K-12 and higher education
Proposals should focus on improving practice in innovative ways.
