NW/MET travelled from the beautiful Blue Mountains in Walla Walla, WA to the verdant city of trees, Boise, ID for the 2016 annual conference, April 6-8, hosted by Boise State University.
We were “perfectly paired” from the Blue Mountains, tasted it’s fruit, and engaged in learning, networking, and technology. In 2016, we were in a place where innovation is constantly used to adapt to rapid change, which is represented by our theme, “Transform, Adapt, and Engage: Reimagining Educational Technology in a Time of Rapid Change”. The tag line, “You never step in the same river twice”, makes reference to being prepared to what lays ahead. New in 2016 was an accessibility track, to inspire, have conversations and share what our institutions are doing in regard to accessibility and Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles.
