Agenda and Program

The EDUCAUSE Annual Conference program is derived from member-driven content organized across overarching IT domains and topical/subject themes. Participants can take part in person or virtually from anywhere.

Attend as an individual, or gather a team together and make it a comprehensive experience including:

Digital Badges

EDUCAUSE will award badges to presenters, online presenters, mentors/thought leaders, successful pre-conference seminar graduates and EDUCAUSE award winners. Badges make accomplishments more visible and signal continued learning and involvement within professional communities. Visit the Digital Badges page for information about the program, review criteria for earning badges, and track your own badges.

Game Changers Business Competition

Come see the future of higher education! During the 2014 EDUCAUSE Game Changers Business Competition, you have the opportunity to see presentations from innovative start-up companies and hear how these new education technology companies are best addressing what they believe to be critical issues and challenges in higher education.

The CIO Experience

The CIO Experience provides on-site intensive networking opportunities, a clearly defined program tailored to higher education IT leadership, and the ability to convene, reflect, and strategize with other CIOs. The CIO Experience includes the CIO Lounge, opportunities to facilitate discussions in peer group meetings, and the Hawkins Leadership Roundtable for new CIOs and those actively seeking the CIO role.

NEW–Senior Leadership Roundtable

New this year, the Senior Leadership Roundtable (SLR) convenes higher education leaders (director level or equivalent) from across the institution to discuss key campus-wide issues, share experiences, and engage in intensive peer networking with experienced leaders.

Innovative Solution Providers

Additional corporate engagement opportunities exist in Orlando to learn about products and services for your institution:

  • More than 250 exhibitors on-site
  • Technology Solutions Presentations
  • Client-Led Sessions and Hot Topic Panels

Digital Poster Gallery

Posters provide an opportunity to share campus experiences through informal, interactive, brief presentations. All on-site poster presenters will recast their posters for online delivery to the Digital Poster Gallery. Participate virtually, share the experience, and explore each topic of interest.

Webcast Sessions

Webcast Sessions, designated by an icon in the daily agendas, will be streamed live for virtual conference participants, and a professional recording will be made available for face-to-face attendees after the event.
