I'm fortunate to be on the EDUCAUSE Midwest Regional Conference 2013 & 2014 program committee. EDUCAUSE hosts an annual conference each Fall, featuring speakers and presentations about various facets of technology in higher education. There's also a smaller conference each Spring, just for schools in the Midwest.
The program committee is now looking for presenters for the Spring 2013 Midwest Regional Conference. Next year's gathering will be March 18–20, 2013 in Chicago.
Current economic, technical, and political events are changing the world of higher education. IT is viewed as the potential solution to many of the issues at the heart of this change. Contribute your lessons learned, ideas, and experiences to our community of forward thinkers at next year's Midwest Regional Conference.
We need your perspective to create a diverse and content-rich program. Share what's happening on your campus in areas like teaching and learning, data analytics, and the changing nature of higher education IT.
Take advantage of this professional development opportunity to sharpen your presentation skills, grow your peer network, and highlight your institution's achievements.
The Midwest Regional Conference is built on the strengths of each institution in EDUCAUSE. I encourage faculty and staff at the University of Minnesota (or nearby schools) to to consider sharing a presentation about work you've done in the last year.
