The 16th annual CATS conference is all about Facing the Future, which points to a combination of challenges — e.g., the rapid pace of change in educational technology, increased demand, and reduced resources — plus the opportunities that technologists have to be creative and innovative in developing solutions that not only work now, but will help pave the way forward.
What will you gain by attending one (or more) of the one-day regional events? For starters, you'll be inspired by the presenters and fellow attendees. You'll also discover new resources, learn from others' experience, and you'll also have an opportunity to share your knowledge and expertise.
Not only that, there is no registration cost for higher education personnel. Please join us!
Meet with colleagues at a 1-day regional meeting near your home campus — no overnight stay required.
Each meeting features a keynote and concurrent presentations, with ample time to network/connect with/learn from other attendees.
Each regional meeting's keynote focuses on how the academic technology function is evolving — three future-facing perspectives.
