The Higher Education Technology Summit will provide a cost-free venue for educational technology managers to gather for a day of:
- product training and updates provided by non-competitive AV manufacturers including Biamp, FSR, Utelogy and Spinetix
- peer-to-peer panel discussion focusing on the challenges of faculty training, pedagogical modification and student success evaluation for technology enriched spaces. Panelists include: Elaine Mello, MIT, Tim O'Neil, Brandeis University, Mike Lucas, UMass Lowell. Guest Moderator: Margot Douaihy, New Bay Media
- networking component that gives attendees the ability to discuss successes and challenges with their contemporaries
Why: As AV equipment manufacturers often hear that technology managers no longer rely on dealers for product knowledge and training any more. They are technically educated and experienced and are increasingly taking more systems design and installation in house. They are also developing technology standards and specifying products for the AV systems campus-wide. Technology managers typically have limited budgets for training, development, networking and travel.
Details: We know you need to be nourished...this day will include morning coffee, lunch and a cocktail hour with hor'devours and an open bar.
