As a culmination to the three regional f2f meetings, a set of presentations in a 1-day virtual environment (presented in "Collaborate") rounds out CATS2012 on Friday, May 4.
The programs for each part of CATS2012 are being presented independently, so you will reap the most benefit by attending at least one regional and the virtual. event. All events are intended to complement one another.
In addition to the Keynote address, a number of 45-minute presentations (including Q&A) that will focus on Academic Technology & Learning Outcomes and Nuts & Bolts of Technology will be given.
