Regional Conference Reports
This year marks our biggest year yet for HighEdWeb Regional Conferences. HighEdWeb New England was held on March 18 and was a fantastic success, with 150 attendees attending 23 presentation sessions (watch Link for more coverage– .ed). Next, late April brings us HighEdWeb Florida, followed by HighEdWeb Michigan in May, HighEdWeb West in June, and – wrapping up our Regionals for the season – HighEdWeb Arkansas in July. We hope you’ll be able to make it to the Regional happening in your area this summer.
Hosting a Regional is intense and rewarding, and we want you to find out how great it is firsthand: Submit a proposal by April 30 to host a Spring 2014 regional conference in your area of the world. The 2014 regional conference schedule will be announced at the HighEdweb annual conference this October, so get going – we want HighEdWeb to come to your town!
