We’re starting to shape the program for edUi 2017 and we want to hear from you. Tell us what workshop topics you’d like to see at edUi. What are you hoping to learn in the coming year? Know someone who’d be great at leading that workshop? Tell us that too!
Did you enjoy edUi? What did you learn? What did we do well? What can we do better? We’ve got questions, you’ve got answers.
The final day of edUi 2016 is almost here, but there’s still a lot ahead of us. Don’t miss Jen Golbeck’s keynote, “The Curly Fry Conundrum.”
Are you ready for another day of edUi? Here is a glimpse of what you can expect for Day 2. Don’t miss the opportunity to go on a morning run with Couch-to-5K creator Josh Clark.
We’re looking forward to kicking off edUi 2016! Here is a glimpse of what you can expect for tomorrow. And don’t forget about the pre-conference meetup tonight at WillowTree’s office in downtown Charlottesville.
