A rendezvous is an
appointment at a specified time and place. In the old American
West, a rendezvous was a time when trappers, Native Americans,
and traders would come together for a few days annually to
exchange goods and services. It was a time when ideas were
shared, when new relationships were formed and old ones renewed.
The 2009 ISTE conference is an opportunity for professionals
from around the world, interested in the betterment and
enhancement of teacher education, to come together to share and
exchange ideas on how teacher education is facing challenges in
the 21st century.
The ISTE 2009 seminar will be held on the Weber State
University (WSU) campus in Ogden, Utah. WSU is located in the
northern part of the state nestled against the Wasatch
Mountains, the western most range of the Rocky Mountains, about
36 miles north of Salt Lake City. The Ogden campus covers more
than 500 acres and offers 37 academic buildings and two
residences. More than 18,000 students study full- and part-time.
WSU prides itself on its excellent teaching, extraordinary
commitment to meeting the needs of students at every stage of
life, and ongoing service to the community.
