West/Southwest Regional ONLINE Conference Early-Bird Closing: Feb. 18

Online Conference Is a Great Alternative

If you've been struggling to take advantage of the many professional development opportunities EDUCAUSE provides—either because of budget constraints or you can't take the time to leave your campus—consider the alternative...

Attend a regional conference—online.

This year's West/Southwest Regional Conference, February 22–24, has an online component that is open to anyone. Anywhere. And, you'll have access a wide variety of sessions from the face-to-face meeting along with sessions that are exclusively for online participants...without any travel and lodging expenses. (In fact, by registering for the online event, you get access to a free online-only preconference seminar.)

Register before February 18 and pay only $175.

"This is a really great way for more people to have an EDUCAUSE experience. I was able to have more of my staff exposed to latest thinking in technology for higher ed institutions from a wide range of locations."
—Online Participant

What you're getting for the registration fee...

  • One free online-only preconference seminar
  • Thirteen streaming sessions (including three general sessions)
  • Countless people who can participate from your location*
  • Zero cost for lodging and transportation
  • Over 20 hours of content
  • All this equaling less than $9 an hour for professional development

*Your registration fee is for a single login access for one computer/meeting location, so we encourage you to participate as a team. Of course you can attend personally from your desk, but we've found these events create active discussion, builds rapport, solidifies plans, and enriches collaboration among teams.
