Each year I run an internal Technology & eLearning Institute for Lesley faculty and academic staff. This year we are want to open it up to regional presenters from other Boston schools and educational organizations. Below is our RFP and link to apply to present at the Institute. Presenters get free registration. We are unable to support transportation costs, etc.
The Institute provides three session formats -A traditional presentation, a BYOL (bring your own laptop) for skills training or how-to’s and a digital poster session. Digital poster sessions are like traditional posters, except we provide you a data projector for you to display your work. Traditional posters are also welcome.
If you have any questions please contact me at rpeterse [at] lesley [dot] edu.
