Supported by the National Science Foundation's Advanced Technological Education (NSF ATE) program, HI-TEC is a national conference on advanced technological education where secondary and postsecondary educators, counselors, industry professionals, trade organizations, and technicians can update their knowledge and skills. Charged with educating America’s technical workforce, the event focuses on the preparation needed by the existing and future workforce for companies in the high-tech sectors that drive our nation’s economy.
As a service to the HI-TEC community, and as a way for us to gather and share, work is underway to provide an abbreviated virtual experience, HI-TEC Livestream, during the time participants would have come together in Portland, as well as to provide an opportunity for accepted presenters to disseminate their work asynchronously, should they choose to do so. HI-TEC Livestream will focus on our community's response to the challenges of COVID-19—especially solutions and successes that have grown out of moving our work and instruction online—and on emergent technician workforce needs that have resulted or may result from the pandemic.
There will be no fees associated with these proceedings although you will be asked to register.
