IMPORTANT UPDATE FOR THE NCCE 2022 CONFERENCE
For over 50 years, NCCE has looked forward to hosting the largest ed-tech event in the northwest. Regrettably, due to the expected continuation of the current public health climate surrounding Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), we have made the extremely difficult decision to postpone the 2022 annual conference set for February 2-4, 2022.
A FAQ page will be set up on our conference website at www.ncce.org/conference2022

Present at the Largest Ed-Tech Event in the Northwest!
The NCCE 2022 Conference Committee invites you to share your knowledge and expertise by presenting at NCCE 2022, which will be held on February 2-4, 2022 in Seattle, WA at the Washington State Convention Center. The onset of COVID-19 has significantly changed the face of teaching, learning and daily operations of districts across the country. It is difficult to project new guidelines, state and federal regulations that might be implemented or how learning environments will look in February of 2022, but NCCE will continually monitor new information that becomes available pertaining to COVID-19. We want to assure you that NCCE leadership will be responsive to any group size limitations and social distancing requirements that may be in place as the health and safety of our conference attendees will be the foundation of our decision-making.
The NCCE Conference is an opportunity to showcase innovative instructional strategies and technology resources that have a positive impact on learning. Individuals representing all academic disciplines and levels in the educational system and all phases of technology education are welcome to submit proposals. As you consider potential topics, we anticipate an increase in professional development with an emphasis on remote learning and related topics.
Types of Presentations:
The compensation below reflects a face-to-face conference. In the event that NCCE is hosted virtually, an updated presenter contract will be provided for your review.
50-minute Concurrent Session
Sessions are 50 minutes in length and designed for you to share information and interact with attendees on a topic in which you have expertise. Session rooms are typically set up in theatre seating and rooms range in size from 100 to 225 seats. Most attendees will have a mobile device to access resources that you provide or take notes for their own learning. Both the main and co-presenter(s) will receive a discounted registration of $200.
Two-hour Workshop (BYOD)
BYOD Workshops are 1 hour and 50 minutes in length. Workshops are offered to provide attendees with an opportunity to learn a new skill or take a deeper dive into a topic. BYOD workshops are held in a lab set-up with classroom seating for up to 45 participants. Participants bring their own device and install necessary apps or software prior to the workshop. You may have more than one person presenting workshop, but only the main presenter will receive a complimentary conference registration and have the option to be reimbursed for up to $100.00 in materials. All co-presenters will be offered a discounted $200 registration.
Two-Hour Workshop (PC Lab)
We are transitioning PC Lab workshops to the BYOD format. Presenters should include information in the proposal that indicates devices/operating systems/browser required and any software/apps that attendees will need to install on his/her device.
Panel discussions should consist of a facilitator and panel members and are a great format to bring together several subject matter experts representing different regions. Panel members should be provided questions ahead of time and you should also plan for an opportunity for Q and A. The lead panelist will receive a complimentary registration and each co-presenter will receive a discounted registration of $200.
Selections will be chosen based on their interest to conference attendees and relevance to current trends and best practices. NCCE prefers to focus on the teaching and learning with ed-tech applications rather than the device.
- Provide a well-written description of your proposal. This information appears in the conference mobile app and on the conference website. We recommend writing your description offline, so you can proofread, and spell check your document.
- Be specific about the focus of your presentation. Space is limited, so be brief and concise.
- This is your opportunity to generate interest in your presentation, so make your proposal unique!
- Proposals should be new content and should not have been presented at a previous NCCE conference.
- Proposals are reviewed and selected by a volunteer selection committee of NCCE members along with the Conference Program Director.
- You will be notified by email by Mid-October 2021 if your proposal is selected for the conference. You will then be asked to accept NCCE’s invitation to present. Please make sure you have the necessary approvals from your district or organization beforehand.
All proposals will be carefully reviewed and selected by a committee of NCCE members.
- The proposal description is complete, clearly stated and of interest to attendees.
- The topic is current, a proven best practice or an exciting emerging trend in educational technology.
- The proposal description convinces the reader that the presenter has a solid understanding of the topic and has an ability to engage and inspire the audience.
