Educause Southeast Regional Conference

This year’s Southeast Regional Conference, "Amp IT Up! Powering Education with Technology,” will focus on key aspects of technology systems and support that enable and enhance the missions of today's higher educational institutions. You'll engage with your peers to learn and share information relating to enterprise systems, new and evolving technologies, applications of technology to the teaching and learning process, and IT career and leadership development.
Add your experiences, innovations, and lessons learned to the discussion by submitting a presentation proposal focused in any of the following areas:
  • Evolving the Enterprise
  • Developing IT Leadership Skills
  • Enhancing Learning with Technology

Why Participate?

Attending an EDUCAUSE regional conference is an opportunity to build your professional network and learn, reflect, and engage with colleagues in an environment removed from the day-to-day pressures of campus. This valuable professional experience directly benefits you and your institution through an infusion of fresh energy and ideas along with validation of current practices.

Why Present?

Providing a content-rich session as an individual or a team is a wonderful way to learn from each other as we share experiences, ideas, and information. Please submit a proposal to share lessons learned from what is happening on your campus, in your system, or in regional networks. Or, submit a proposal that gathers the community together to discuss key issues as move into our collective futures.
Tips to remember as you prepare your proposal to present at the EDUCAUSE Southeast Regional Conference 2013:
  • All those from institutions of higher education and associations interested in higher education IT are encouraged to submit proposals on key topics suggested in the track area descriptions.
  • As you think about the best format to propose, remember all sessions should be designed for both attendees and presenters to learn from interactive exchange.
  • It is very important to clearly articulate intended outcomes—the specific knowledge to be acquired as a result of attending your session.
  • Engaging your audience is one of the most critical aspects of a successful presentation, so don't forget to include specific strategies of how you will build interactivity during your session.
