A Rookie’s Review of #heweb11

by

A HighEdWeb conference rookie myself, I’m joined for this week’s episode by fellow conference noobs Gabe Sanchez and Brandon Croke, of Inigral. We share our first-timers look at the “South by Southwest of Higher Ed” and expand on our takeaways, top presentations and more.

Whether you’re a veteran curious what some fresh meat think of the event, or someone who’s yet to experience the festivities yourself, this episode offers a nice snapshot of what great conferences in higher ed should look like.
