The Chronicle Technology Forum April 5-7, 2009 Arlington, Va.

About the Forum

Join hundreds of your colleagues in higher education to glimpse the future of technology on campus at The Chronicle Technology Forum.

Brought to you by the editors of The Chronicle of Higher Education, the Technology Forum is the only event that delivers truly comprehensive analysis and insight into how technology is changing higher education.

You'll get mission-critical insights to help you lead your institution into the future. You'll learn new ideas on how to incorporate technology into your strategy for running your institution. And you'll discover how you can keep your institution on the cutting edge.

Among the key topics of discussion:

  • How can you use technology to save money in tough economic times?
  • How are new learning environments competing with — or enhancing — the classroom experience?
  • How can distance education save you — or even make you — money?
  • How can you help your campus avoid a major security breach?
  • How can technology strengthen your relations with faculty members, administrators, students, alumni, donors, and parents?

You'll discover:

  • How to decide how much to spend on IT — and what to spend it on.
  • How you should govern the management and use of technology on your campus.
  • How to review the way your institution makes technology decisions.
  • How to assess if your institution is investing in the right amount — and in the right areas — of technology.

New For 2009

Based on feedback from last year's attendees, we have made several changes to the Technology Forum for 2009:

  • A reduced registration rate, plus new discounts for Forum Alumni.
  • A shorter, more compact program means less time away from campus.
  • Limited size — we have capped the number of attendees this year to allow for a more intimate conference experience.
  • Increased networking time for you to meet your colleagues from around the country.
  • Just 5 minutes from Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) by taxi or subway.
  • Close proximity to restaurants, shopping, tourist attractions, and public transportation.

April 5-7 should be a wonderful time to visit Washington, D.C. — the popular National Cherry Blossom Festival will be in full swing during the Forum.

"The mix of attendees is the aspect that I really like about this Forum. At breakfast, lunch, and during sessions, I engaged in dialogue with presidents, provosts, librarians, and CIO's. The opportunity to discuss issues and similarities is invaluable to me."

Gloria Kunik, Associate Vice President for Enterprise Information Systems, University of Baltimore

"The Chronicle Technology Forum provides a unique opportunity for CEO's and CIO's to come together in a common endeavor to strategically envision the role of technologies on their campuses."

Thomas H. Carnwath, Chief Information Technology Officer, University of the Arts

"This really is the place to come for access to the most well-informed and on-the-cutting-edge technology experts — there's no fluff."

Ernie Nolan, Vice President for Academic Administration, Madonna University
