  • 1.  EdTA conference

    Posted 14 days ago
    Good morning.
    Anyone here participate in the virtual conference? How much did it cost? I need to submit a PD request for next school year, and I would like to include the EdTA conference. I couldn't find that information anywhere and have not received a reply.
    Thanks!

    I do not remember the cost (it was minimal) - but I do think that the goal is now to switch back to in-person events for the future.  I went to the one in NYC, and you'd need to factor in travel, hotel, meals and registration.   There are a few grants/scholarships for teachers that help to cover the registration cost, though.  I see that you are in Portugal - so that may be more complex for you - perhaps there is a way for EDTA to continue to offer a virtual option for those who live abroad or at a great distance from the conference site?
