Instructional TecHnologY Forum 2020 POSTPONED & Rescheduled
Given the current situation of COVID-19 in the region, it is with regret to let you know that the 2020 IT Forum scheduled for Saturday, March 14, has been postponed. The ETF faculty and the GAIT Board plans to reschedule this event sometime in September after Labor Day. It is an unfortunate turn-of-event after a year-long work and planning. However, all accepted presentations and workshops, and paid registrations will be included in the new date unless there is a change in your plan to attend. Also, we will open a new call for additional presentation proposals in the summer. Please send an email to Dr. Baylen at email@example.com if you have any questions related to the rescheduled IT Forum 2020. Thank you for your participation and support to the IT Forum, a GAIT-ETF collaboration.
