D2L Users Conference at St. Paul RiverCentre in July 2009
This from MnSCU CIO Ken Niemi: "St. Paul’s RiverCentre will be the site of the 2009 D2L Users Conference. MnSCU will co-host the event with Desire2Learn. The event kicks off on Sunday evening, July 12. The main conference will be July 13-15, with post-conference sessions July 16-17. This is a great opportunity for MnSCU faculty, administrators and technical staff to attend an international conference within driving distance.
The 2008 conference was held in Memphis, Tennessee, where an all-day Executive Session was offered for the first time. Given the success of that session, it will be offered again at the 2009 conference in St. Paul. The session will be geared toward an audience of high level planners and administrators, including CAOs, CIOs, presidents, and other executives involved in planning and administering enterprise system technology and learning management systems.
We look forward to co-hosting this event in St. Paul, and we anticipate high numbers of participants from all MnSCU institutions. The conference will include a variety of tracks geared towards teaching and learning, training and support, technical administration, and program management. Stay tuned for more information about the conference in the coming months." (eom)
I'm not modest enough not to mention that the main reason they want to come back to Minnesota is because the conference was such a success when it was held here in Duluth. There may be other reasons, but that has to be #1.
