ICTE's First Annual Conference:
A Great Success!

We are thrilled with the turnout, responses, and exciting conversations at our first state conference that was held at Park Tudor School on March 16th, 2019.  Highlights included a craft talk from State Poet Laureate Adrian Matejka, over 20 workshop offerings, tons of free books for attendees, and Indiana's own Future is Now Roundtable session that featured over 25 pre-service teachers and their research.   

Thank you again to everyone--all attendees, workshop presenters, chairs, respondents, speakers, roundtable leaders, and volunteers--for making ICTE's first conference a great success!
