Justify Your Attendance

You recognize the value of attending Campus Technology 2013, but how do you communicate that to the campus management team responsible for approving your professional development requests? (We know that travel and training budgets are tight, and it’s difficult to get approval to attend events and conferences, which is why we want to help you!)

One of the best ways to get approval to attend a conference is to connect your responsibilities and department’s goals and challenges to your conference experience.

Listed here are some goals common to our attendees, as well as the ways in which Campus Technology meets these needs, so you can make a strong case for attending.


How Campus Technology
Supports Your Goal

Objectively evaluate the pros and cons of technologies and services

Campus Technology does not advocate particular technologies, products or companies. Instead, through breakout sessions, in-depth workshops and a tech-specific exhibit hall, we help you explore your options so that you can make decisions that are right for your projects and your institution.

Understand the link between your specific campus challenges and IT activities

The most successful projects align specific institutional needs with IT objectives. Campus Technology conferences have a variety of sessions that help make the connection between higher education and IT, with specific options for educators, IT, campus executives and administrators.

Validate the direction of your current campus initiatives

CT13’s 50+ sessions and expert presenters can help you validate the current direction of your campus projects and avoid common pitfalls along the way. Thanks to easy access to session leaders, as well as exceptional peer-to-peer networking, you have many opportunities to discuss the specific challenges you face.

Make a case for your technology project

Often the hardest part of a project is securing budget approval from your department and institution. Solidify your position by learning how to make a sound business case for technology projects. CT13 provides several courses that will help you avoid costly mistakes and allow you to ensure a maximal return on investment, whether it is measured by classroom use, greater ease or innovation.

Stay current on technological advancements and keep your skills up to date

Be sure that your skills keep pace with those of your students! Workshops and sessions at CT13 are taught by thought-leaders in higher ed tech—pioneering experts with experience in applying the latest technologies and techniques at real campuses across the country.  Let them show you how they do it, and how you can, too!

Network and share best practices with your peers

Campus Technology conferences are renowned for superb peer-to-peer networking and a convivial atmosphere. Take advantage of round-table lunches, poster sessions, hospitality suites and the exhibit hall reception to connect with other campus professionals and exchange ideas.

Gain fresh ideas and get inspired

With over 50-plus workshops, sessions and keynotes, access to industry-leading experts, a hype- and hassle-free Exhibit Hall, and many opportunities for networking, Campus Technology 2013 will provide you with a new perspective on your work, its challenges and successes. Get inspired, and return to work armed with fresh ideas and innovative approaches for using new technologies on your campus!
