For Sponsors: For our sponsors, it is an opportunity to raise awareness of your brand, product, and mission. We want our sponsors can interact with our attendees, knowing that many of our key sponsors have important stories to tell that align with advancing teaching, learning and technology.
Through this event, we hope our sponsors can not only share their brand but also inspire new ways of thinking about education and technology.
Our sponsors are critical in allowing us to provide this symposium at no cost to participants. This provides the opportunity for attendees to participate and engage from the Oregon State University’s academic and student community, the state and region.
