educause-2007-seattle.jpegAs some (or most) of my readers already know, I work as a technology director at a private college. Working in the higher education market has unique challenges and opportunities for technology professionals. And, there are some really great professional organizations for I.T. folk who work at colleges and universities. One organization is Educause.

If you work in higher education (anywhere in the world) and you don’t know about Educause then take some time to visit their website and review all of the free materials available to anyone. I have benefited greatly from my association with and membership in the Educause organization. This week I am attending the annual Educause conference, which is being held in Seattle, Washington (USA).

So far the conference has been great. Today is the last day. This afternoon I will be visiting two colleges/universities in the area. I always enjoy visiting other campuses to see how they deal with I.T. issues and how they have implemented technology. In this case, I know the I.T. directors and will enjoy learning more about their workplace as they have told me many stories about their campuses.

Before I sign off, I must give a shout-out to Judy and her class at Whitworth College (oh, okay I’ll acknowledge you are now Whitworth UNIVERSITY). I hope you are learning a lot about technology.
