#GREAT13 Conference


The #GREAT13 Conference  in Galway, Ireland

Two weeks, 21 people, one GREAT conference!  As part of our Technology and Leadership course (CEP 815) my year 2 Masters in Educational Technology (MAET) class was responsible for hosting an educational conference.  Our responsibilities included  everything from planning and preparation to presenting at the conference. We worked together as a class to plan all aspects related to hosting the conference. Our theme was: “Explore Technology: Set Sail to New Horizons.”  With our theme in mind it was our goal to create an informative and engaging experience for our attendees focused on exploration of technology, education and leadership.

We were placed in small groups to plan our session presentations. As a group we were required to create 2-3 presentations.  My group’s presentation focused teaching presentation and organizational skills through the use of technology.  Scroll down to learn more our about our presentations.
