Present at ITEC

The call for ITEC presenters is a continuous process. We need to share what works for teachers! Please consider sharing your Technology Education, Industrial Education, Engineering, STEM, or even Manual Arts ideas with the rest of our membership.

Continuing Education Information

Teachers may receive up to 6 Professional Development Hours (PDH).

Continuing Education Units (CEUs) will be available for the Illinois Technology Education Conference. Each participant will receive, in their conference folder, the CEU sheet and information for obtaining their credit. Please remember that CEU reporting is done at the local level, not through the Technology Education Association of Illinois.

In order to receive your professional development units for ITEC 2022, you must

fill out this form and submit it to TEAI. Each ITEC attendee received an "Evaluation for Workshop, Conference, Seminar" form in your packet; use this form to upload to ISBE. You will also need to upload the Illinois Technology Education Conference

agenda/sessions you attended within your ELIS account at the Illinois State Board of Education website. Illinois State

University is the Provider.

ITEC Professional Development Outcomes

Each teacher can upload the email that they receive from the form, which is exactly the same information that ISBE collects. Each teacher needs to upload the ITEC agenda and indicate how many sessions they attended. All of this is done through each teacher's ELIS account.
