WCET 32nd Annual Meeting Virtual Seminar Series | Essential Discussions for Higher Ed In Unprecedented Times

Join WCET for this year's Annual Meeting - a Virtual Seminar Series!

Registration is open!

In these uncertain times, we have decided to move WCET’s 32nd Annual Meeting to a virtual seminar series in lieu of hosting it in Indianapolis. The two-part series of topic-focused virtual discussions and experiences will bring together higher education community members, practitioners, and experts. Each seminar will include strategic work group collaborations and networking events.

Attendees can register for individual seminars or the full series.

The 2020 Seminar Series Topics:

  • November 2 - 12, on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday of each week: The Value of Higher Education and What the Future of Education Could Be

Synchronous activities, including networking, will begin at 8:30 AM MT and conclude by 4:30 PM MT.

Each seminar will take place in our brand-new virtual event platform and will include sessions and experiences interspersed throughout six days to provide flexibility and value:
