METC 2020 Conference Sessions
NEW this year! We are expanding our conference to three full days, with more choices for our attendees to personalize their experience. You will be able to Build Your Own Conference (BYOC) with several types of sessions to add-on for extended learning. Choose to attend one, two or all three days! Choose to add on a hands-on workshop for a deeper-dive in a specific topic or tool or a Specialty Luncheon with a Featured Speaker and a hot buffet. 

BYOC Example: ISTE Certification will be offered as a 3-day conference registration with certification training on Monday & Wednesday of the conference, and Tuesday will be available for attending the Keynote, a Specialty Luncheon, Exhibit Hall, SHOWcase, and Poster or Breakout Sessions.

Workshops will be embedded throughout the three days of the 2019 METC Conference. They offer attendees the opportunity to attend a workshop that is hands-on and in-depth about a specific topic, tool, etc. Each workshop has a maximum number of slots and will be available onsite as a first-come-first-served choice. Workshops may be BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) or may focus on a specific software, application or tool. Read through the descriptions and choose carefully. 

Our staff is currently planning and coordinating with sponsors and interested companies to develop this new personalized experience. We will add other learning experiences for attendees throughout the next months like certifications, micro-badging, and more. METC U will be finalized by September, so all attendees will have an opportunity to review before they register.
