At last year’s conference for the National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education Certification (NASDTEC), it was announced that the Educational Testing Service (ETS) would partner with Mursion to provide simulation technology for its new teacher licensure assessment. Today, the company’s technology is being utilized by more than 65 universities and programs to equip K-12 teachers with the knowledge and skills necessary to face the challenges of the classroom. Techweek is enthusiastic about innovation across various industries, therefore, we are happy to welcome Carrie Straub of Mursion to the Techweek Dallas Summit 2016 stage.

Techweek recognizes that Dallas is more than just Cowboys football and BBQ. Dallas has a rich history of business formation and a vibrant tech ecosystem that should be appreciated. With the goal of helping to facilitate conversations and cultivate relationships in the tech space, Techweek knows that Dallas was not a city to pass up. Techweek Dallas (Oct. 31 to Nov. 4) will not only feature thought-provoking panels and an exciting startup competition, but will also provide three nights of concerts with headlining acts Matt & Kim and Purity Ring. Be sure to grab your Summit tickets to hear Carrie share more about Mursion’s innovations in edtech on the Techweek Dallas stage on November 3.

Carrie is the Executive Director of Educational Programs and Research at Mursion. She directs all major activities related to designing and implementing virtual simulations for the company’s 75+ partners, which include higher education institutions, school districts, and charter schools.
