The Technology Education Special Interest Council (TESIC) exists to foster professional growth and development of members of the Newfoundland and Labrador Teachers Association in areas related to Technology Education.

TESIC also advocates for the special interests of Technology Educators and attempts to liason with other partners in the educational enterprise for the welfare of our members as well as the development of our students in areas influenced by technology education.

Our primary activity is the TESIC Biennial General Meeting and Conference which we hold every two years where we have a keynote address the evening before and offer professional learning sessions throughout the next day. A vital part of the conference is the BGM where we review the activities of the council over the last term, discuss issues relevant to TESIC’s mandate, and hold elections to council for the new term. It is an important and significant event in a council’s term in office. It gives teachers an opportunity to connect with each other, helps guide TESIC’s priorities for the coming term, and is an important source of renewal. While our primary activities are the BGM and Conference, we seek to host other smaller events and constantly advocate on our members behalf.
