Participants from around IU and beyond gathered at the School of Education last week for the 20thInstructional Systems Technology Conference. The conference is a free, student-run event that offers graduate students a safe venue to gain experience in presenting, organizing and attending professional conferences.
About 145 participants attended this year’s conference in person, with more joining in remotely. Presenters included School of Education graduate students, faculty members, professionals in the field and graduate students from other universities, including Purdue University.
After two decades of holding the event, conference leaders are very proud of keeping alive a great opportunity for the IST community to collaborate together and bring people in the field together. The conference gave students opportunities to showcase their work, and lets practitioners demonstrate their best practices at work while making the connections between the practitioners and the academics in the field.
