2019 JTC Spring Symposium and Spring Unconference

Are you looking for a dynamic networking opportunity to meet with your peers from across Alberta?  Are you seeking engaging breakout sessions?  Are you interested in hearing from leaders across the province regarding their experiences and successes?

The second annual ATLE JTC Spring Symposium, sponsored by Compugen, will be held May 1, 2019, at the DoubleTree Hotel in Edmonton.  Dana DiTomaso will keynote the day by challenging us to think about the graduating class of 2025 and what we need to do now to prepare them for that milestone event.  The program is now published.  Registration is open.

As was the case last year, the ProLearn Committee is planning an IT/ET Leadership Unconference, sponsored by ACSI/Fortinet, the previous day (April 30) at the same location.  Registration for this event is also open.  For further information, consult the  Unconference brochure

What to Expect at the JTC Symposium

The committee has completed nearly all the planning for the event.  Dana DiTomaso will be the keynote speaker.  Twelve compelling breakout sessions are in the final stages of development.  You may want to bring at least one colleague in order to fully cover the information available for the day. 

Keynote Speaker: Dana DiTomaso

Congratulations Class of 2025!

Preeparing students for the challenges of 2025 is more than just making sure that everyone takes at least one how-to-code class. Our keynote speaker, Dana DiTomaso, will address the changing technology landscape  and what that means for the lessons we teach our students now.

Dana is President & Partner at Kick Point, where she applies marketing into strategies to grow clients' businesses, in particular to ensure that digital and traditional play well together. With her deep experience in digital, Dana can separate real solutions from wastes of time (and budget).

In her spare time, Dana is the past-president of the Advertising Club of Edmonton and is the weekly technology columnist on CBC Edmonton AM. She also enjoys drinking fancy beer and yelling at football players.
