Higher ed 2009 events and conferences for web and marketing teams

February 27th, 2009 Karine Joly No Comments

As you probably know if you’ve been reading this blog for a bit, I maintain a Google calendar of higher ed events and conferences where I keep track of anything interesting for web and marketing teams.

It’s a useful tool, but sometimes a good old post does the trick as well – especially when it highlights deadlines for registration, call for proposals and other interesting information like registration fees.
