Imagine this with me…
The gas burner hisses and flames shoot sky high. The colorful giant globe begins to rise, tucking at the basket impatiently. Any minute now, it will take to the sky.
West region conference planning committee is firing up the burners and getting ready to take the UPCEA 2016 West Region Conference to a new height!
In 2016, the professional, continuing and online education field is poised to be a strategic player in addressing key issues rising to the top of a national discourse around the future of higher education: access, affordability, flexibility, accountability driven by data, alignment with industry-recognized competencies and more.
We want to know the amazing work you, our members, have done and the lessons learned along the way.
We want to help you connect with the kindred spirits who share your passion for transforming education.
With the return of the popular segments such as the Emerging Leader program, the WestTalk sessions, and the two leadership panels, we want to engage you before, during, and after the conference so the sharing extends far beyond.
Jump in the basket with us. Tell us your journey. See you high up in the sky of Albuquerque.
