“This conference intends to strengthen the connection between members of the higher education community in the South Florida region and create opportunities for interdisciplinary conversation, engagement, and learning,” said Morris.
The conference will feature four keynote speakers:
- Kenneth C. Green, founding director of the Campus Computing Project and the director of the Digital Fellows Project;
- Laura Niesen de Abruna, past president and current board member of ACAO and board member of the Council of Independent Colleges (CIC) CAO Task Force;
- Karen Vignare, executive director for the Personalized Learning Consortium at the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities; and
- Todd Taylor, Eliason Distinguished Professor of English and Comparative Literature at UNC Chapel Hill.
Hands-on workshops, individual and panel presentations, poster presentations, and a vendor exhibit are also on the conference’s schedule.
Morris and Bruce have been part of the Digital Fellows Program for the past year and are excited to see what the Digital Conference will bring.
“The conference is intended to provide a space for productive conversations about how to effectively integrate technology into classes across the curriculum,” said Bruce, and “it will also allow for explorations of how technologies impact college campuses.”
