Educause Learning Initiatives Annual Meeting: Advancing the Next Generation of Learning

You’re invited to a local showing of the ELI (Educause Learning Initiatives) Annual Meeting next week, February 4-6.  We’ll be projecting a number of online and featured meetings in the Harari Institute conference room.  Bring your cup of coffee or your lunch and join colleagues for a series of lively topics!

The theme of the meeting this year, Advancing the Next Generation of Learning, involves the “orchestration of a broad range of innovations and campus resources.  It focuses on the rapid evolution of learning technology, charting its migration from the desktop to the cloud and highly mobile devices.” More information is available from EDUCAUSE.
