Higher-Ed Tech Professionals to Collaborate at California Conference

Hundreds of higher-education decision makers including chief information officers, campus IT directors and administrators, instructional designers and eLearning program managers from across the country will explore the latest digital solutions and best practices when they convene April 8-9 for Campus Technology (CT) Forum 2014 at The Westin in Long Beach, Calif. 

“The purpose of CT Forum is to cultivate a tight-knit community of technology professionals working at higher-ed institutions,” said Patrick Gallagher, Event Director, Education Events at 1105 Media. “CT Forum focuses on sharing best practices of cutting-edge technology not only for classrooms but also for campus-wide infrastructures.”

The conference includes a variety of general keynote and breakout sessions, poster sessions, technology classroom sessions and case study roundtables where attendees can delve into new technology solutions. Focus areas include distance and online education; IT management, systems and leadership; and teaching and learning.

“CT Forum is one of the most intimate higher-ed tech conferences on the West Coast,” said Gallagher. “Each session is limited in size, allowing for more peer-to-peer networking and engaging conversations with key industry leaders.”

CT Forum 2014 will feature two dynamic keynote speakers: Ellen Wagner and Gary Brown. Wagner is the Partner and Senior Analyst at Sage Road Solutions. She also serves as the Executive Director of the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education. Brown is the Academic Director and Co-Director for Research at the Association of American Colleges and Universities.

Event sponsors for CT Forum 2014 include industry leaders such as Kaspersky Lab, Bitdefender, Lenovo, Time Warner Cable Business Class and Xirrus.

“In addition to providing maximum interaction between attendees and speakers, CT Forum also provides a unique setting for attendees and exhibitors,” said Eason. “Exhibitors are able to show attendees one-on-one how to use their products to benefit campuses and students.”
