Now that I’m almost done with conference season (4 down -EduComm, eduWeb, High Ed Web & SIM Tech- and 1 to go – CASE conference for publication professionals), it’s time to share the program I designed with my faculty team from Higher Ed Experts for folks working in institutions.
As I explained last week at SIM Tech to a couple of conference attendees, webinars are a great way to train teams (and bring the right message/gospel home to your boss).
This time again, I’ve tried to put a program to help you do your job even better at a time where you are asked to do a lot more with a lot less (time, money, staff…)
As usual, places are limited, so it’s always wise to register ahead of time if you want to secure a spot for your team. You can register by visiting each of the dedicated web addresses of the series. And, if you have any questions, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org – always happy to help.
