Higher Ed Tech Conference 2010: Networking for a Better Tomorrow
February 29, 2010, Maui, Hawaii
Do you spend most of your office time online? Are you surrounded by technophobes at work? Do you need to work on your tan? We have the conference for you!
“How to Look Like You’re Doing Work When You’re Really Doing Facebook.”
Learn to download applications that disguise social networking sites so your nosy boss will think you’re working on this year’s learning-outcomes assessment report.
“I used to be a Twit, and now I’m a consultant!”
Motivational speaker and pretty boy Brad Spader tells how he rose from a tenure-rejected professor to a higher ed hero by writing 150 tweets per hour and presenting at every higher ed conference in existence. Brad will be signing his new book, Be Almost as Blond and Good as Me, at lunchtime.
Bring your Blackberry! We’ll drink coffee, exchange Twitter names, FB friend each other and talk about how lame MySpace is.
Each conference attendee will receive a certificate that says you’ve won a prestigious award for “Progressive Use of Technology to Improve Higher Education” in case your supervisor ever questions the amount of time you spend on AIM.
Make your reservations now. Conference programs are only one day, but we will provide publications that list a 3-day schedule so you can feel free to book extra time for additional “professional development.”
Call for Programs
National FME-CSP Conference
October 21-24, 2009
Future Manager Education in College Student Personnel
This year’s FME-CSP conference team has put together a convention theme that captures the excitement and expectations coming with the change of decades. We\’re putting the F back in FME.
Intentional * On Purpose * Keeping It Real
We hope those three terms give you the feeling of anticipation we had when we developed the theme. We intend (get it?) to make this the best student affairs conference you’ve ever attended.
We need a wide range of programs, especially in the following categories:
- Diversity – The Racial Kind
- GLBT Diversity
- The Creepy Internet and Why Facebook Makes Us Insecure
- Generational Diversity
- Trends in Higher Education
Send program proposals to: editor at cronknews dot com
Include a description of the program and make sure you have a clever title that ties in with the conference theme. Something like \”Intentionally Intending to Keep It Real\” would be perfect.
Proposals due September 1, 2009
