2022 Conference Program!!


2022 Fall Conference

October 14, 2022

Charleston Southern University 

Last year, our SCATE organization began a series of action-oriented conversations focused on the integration of technology; diversity, equity, and inclusion; in tandem with these aspirations, we discussed unique ways to recruit and retain educators. At this year’s conference, we hope to expand these conversations to include a focus on the roles, research,relationships, and responsibilities of professional educators as we work to establish and maintain an educational system in South Carolina that educates ALL learners. We invite you to submit your proposal to the SCATE 2022 Annual Conference in Charleston, South Carolina.
