2020 ITEC Leadership & Learning Symposium

Update 3/13/2020

At this time, the ITEC Board has concluded that – despite our best efforts to proceed – now is not the time to hold our Leadership & Learning Summit. As a result of the evolving public health concerns around coronavirus (COVID-19) and in the best interests of everyone involved, the ITEC Board made the difficult, but necessary decision not to hold the Leadership & Learning Summit on March 31-April 1, 2020.

As soon as we are able, we will be processing refunds to our Attendees and Vendor partners.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.


The event formerly known as the i11i Conference is now the ITEC Leadership & Learning Symposium. The symposium will feature a half-day leadership event followed by a one day conference full of sessions that support technology in education, as well as opportunities to continue to explore the leadership day learning.  

The 2020 Leadership Day focuses on exploring how openly-licensed educational resources can support all learners and will feature Dr. Jeanette Westfall, Director of Curriculum, Instruction and Staff Development for Liberty Public Schools.
