April 10th and 11th 2013 Bridgeport WV
The West Virginia Department of Education Office of Instructional Technology will be hosting our annual Network Design and Strategies Workshop, April 10-11 at the Bridgeport Conference Center. The intent of this workshop is to step through various segments of networking and IT technologies, discussing the key ‘need to know’ concepts pertinent to each segment and sharing ‘best practice’ designs. The sessions will allow for interactive dialog (as time permits) to foster discussions and Q & A regarding your real-world experiences. The objective is to provide useful guidelines and technical direction to facilitate sound and consistent deployments throughout the school networks.
This workshop is intended for those within the West Virginia school system responsible for planning, designing and deploying their network and IT infrastructures, such as Technology Directors/Coordinators, Network Technicians, RESA Technicians and WVEIS Staff, and county and school level TSS (Technology Support Specialists). This event will count for at least 12 of the 15 required credit hours for TSS’s.
Registration will be 8:30-9:00 a.m. with sessions running 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Participants will be responsible for their own travel arrangements and expenses. Lunches and breaks will be provided both days.
The maximum capacity for the event is 100 participants, so you must register to attend. Registration will close once the maximum capacity is reached.
Reservations may be made at the adjacent Wingate hotel (304.808.1000) for those needing overnight accommodations, for the nights of the 9th and 10th. The Group Code is WVDEI4 @ a rate of $88.00 per night. You may also consider using the Microtel (304) 808-2000 which shares the same parking lot.
