It is with mixed emotions that I write to you for the final time in my term as President. Obviously, holding a position of leadership in a professional organization such as TI:ME can be trying. Everyone who helps run TI:ME is a volunteer, and it is difficult to prioritize volunteer responsibilities for which there may not be immediate reward. Motivating people to participate, and convincing members and potential members that the value of TI:ME is directly proportional to that which you put into it, have been the most difficult tasks of my presidency.
That said, I have certainly enjoyed this position. I have learned a tremendous amount about leading an organization. I have gotten to work very closely with some of my idols in our field, and I will always value those experiences.
On Monday, October 13th 10AM-4PM EST, TI-ME is presenting its first online conference featuring sessions from prominent educators and a keynote by Dr. Jay Dorfman. Sessions will focus on the pedagogy of teaching with technology and will benefit all educators.
Registration is free for TI-ME members so register or join TI-ME today to take advantage of this great opportunity! Participants will receive a certificate for completing 6 hours of continued learning.
