Dr. Eval will see you now...

Did you know that ISTE has a research and evaluation department that can help you plan grant proposals? Because we regularly work with multiple projects funded through federal and corporate granting streams, we often know what funders are looking for and how to design programs and evaluations that meet their requirements. Ask Dr. Eval will be available for free consultation. Sign up for a 15-minute appointment with Dr. Eval at ISTE Central in the Sails Pavilion.

ISTE Board Inside Out: What's Next for ISTE?

ISTE's new governance model relies even more on the voices and ideas of members to help build our future as an association. At this interactive session, ISTE President Holly Jobe and the ISTE Board of Directors want to hear from you! We'll kick off by sharing information about setting ISTE's strategic course, board service, and other volunteer opportunities. Let's build the future together.
