In 2014, six teachers planned and executed a teacher-led half day conference that included a keynote speaker, 21 workshop choices, and time for professional networking. Educators shared best practices for integrating technology into lessons, projects, and classrooms.  For a change, this PD was received positively by teachers and the day was declared a success!    This half-day professional development was replicated in 2015 with a change: more time for teachers to learn from one another.  Participants had the choice to attend two sessions, or one longer, more in-depth session.    Our workshop, Tech PD for Teachers by Teachers,  will take participants through the process of planning a district-wide professional development conference from beginning to end. We’ll share our planning documents and discuss how we involved community and school stakeholders, as well as our tips for success and mistakes we made along the way. A template for replicating this program will be provided.
