An excerpt from the announcement on Tales from Redesignland:

Well, anyway, they don’t have the faintest idea what they’ve signed themselves up for, but in the coming months, they will find out.

Because, yes, I *will* be resurrecting Tales for the duration.

So, get ready for: “Tales from the Redesignland Crypt – The Reanimated Series”. 

We can’t wait! Can you? And yes, we do love our jobs!

Higher Ed Experts to sponsor HighEdWeb West keynote speaker

higheredexperts.comHigher Ed Experts has always been a strong supporter of conferences held by the Higher Education Web Professionals Association (HighEdWeb). With this year’s addition of five regional conferences to the Association’s 2013 schedule, we are pleased to announce that Higher Ed Experts has committed to an even greater support.

Higher Ed Experts will be the Silver-level Keynote Sponsor for all five of HighEdWeb’s 2013 regional conferences:

  • HighEdWeb New England – March 18 at Mount Holyoke in South Hadley, Mass.
  • HighEdWeb Florida – April 22-23 at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Fla.
  • HighEdWeb Michigan – May 20-21 at the University of Michigan-Flint.
  • HighEdWeb West – June 2-4 at Chapman University in Orange, Calif.
  • HighEdWeb Arkansas – July 25-26 at Philander Smith College in Little Rock, Ark.

Karine Joly, executive director at Higher Ed Experts, is truly dedicated to the higher education web profession, as many in the community can attest.

“We want to help you learn and grow in your higher ed career – no matter how you do it,” Joly said, “so we are always happy to support great learning opportunities like the conferences offered by the HighEdWeb Association.”

As a part of this sponsorship, each 2013 HighEdWeb regional conference will give away one full scholarship (worth $800) to one of its attendees. This scholarship will enable the winning attendee to enroll in one of Higher Ed Expert’s four-week online professional development courses. Scholarship winners will be able to choose from several timely and important topics like web analytics or social-media marketing, making this a very desirable and valued prize indeed.

The Higher Education Web Professionals Association is an organization of Web professionals working at institutions of higher education. We design, develop, manage and map the futures of higher education Web sites. HighEdWeb is pleased to lead professional development in the higher education Web sphere through resources such as LINK: the online journal of higher education Web professionals; its regional conferences; the HighEdWeb Leadership Academy; and the HighEdWeb Annual Conference.
