EdTechTeacher Conference and Workshop Code of Conduct

All attendees, speakers, sponsors and volunteers at EdTechTeacher conferences and workshops are required to agree with the following code of conduct. Organisers will enforce this code throughout EdTechTeacher events. We are expecting cooperation from all participants to help ensure a safe environment for everybody.

Anti-Harassment Policy

EdTechTeacher is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religious beliefs. We do not tolerate harassment of conference or workshop participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference or workshop venue, including talks, hand-on sessions, parties, Twitter, and other online media. EdTechTeacher Conference or Workshop participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference or workshop without a refund at the discretion of the conference organizers.

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

Sponsors are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, sponsors should not use sexualised images, activities, or other material.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, EdTechTeacher, Inc. may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the conference with no refund.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the EdTechTeacher staff immediately, either Tom Daccord (tom@edtechteacher.org, Justin Reich (justin@edtechteacher.org), or Gail Ross-McBride (gail@edtechteacher.org). At conferences, EdTechTeacher staff can be identified as they’ll have blue name tags and there is always someone available at the registration desk.

Conference and workshop staff will be happy to help participants contact hotel/venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference. We value your attendance.

We expect participants to follow these rules at conference and workshop venues and conference-related social events.
