TechFest is a unique professional development opportunity for CIS Ontario school administrators, information and technology teams, communications and admissions departments and business office staff.  With sessions led by those working in the areas of information and innovation, education management systems, data analytics, privacy and data management, all teams from across your school will benefit from this cross-departmental collaboration and learning experience. 

TechFest 2021 - Community Conversations

We are excited to announce a new initiative, TechFest Community Conversations - a series of FREE virtual, facilitated discussions covering topics that are front of mind for I.T. professionals and data leaders. We also recognize the reality of Zoom fatigue, and as such we are crafting these 60-90 minutes sessions as engaged, community driven conversations instead of presentations.

In celebration of Star Wars Day, the first TechFest Community Conversation - Dataflow Decisions: Best of Breed or One Integrated System - will take place on May 4th from 1:00-2:30 p.m. Is it possible to achieve the elusive centralized system or do we need to embrace the decentralized nature of the future?

In order to keep the conversation going, we are looking for community involvement from CIS Ontario member schools in determining the hottest topics in our industry and so, are asking for you to not only register for the first session, but to share your topic ideas. All ideas are welcome, and submitting your idea does not mean you have to facilitate the discussion. 

Join us in creating a vibrant, virtual community with hopes that we can meet again soon in person.
