The League for Innovation Announces Call for Proposals for First Annual STEMtech Conference
Replacing the fall Conference on Information Technology (CIT), STEMtech is an interactive learning experience with a strong focus on STEM disciplines – science, technology, engineering, mathematics – in general education and workforce training and in technology use across the institution. In addition, STEMtech continues the 25-year legacy of CIT and its predecessors as the fall "tech" conference: the place to explore the intelligent application of information technology in community and technical colleges.
Phoenix, AZ, January 28, 2010--The League for Innovation in the Community College is accepting presentation proposals for the first annual STEMtech conference to be held October 31 - November 3, 2010, at Orlando’s Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin, the gateway to Central Florida's greatest theme parks and attractions.
A handful of presentation slots are reserved for League for Innovation Corporate Partners, who are strongly encouraged to submit proposals and exhibit at the conference. This conference will provide an excellent format for showcasing the latest and greatest products and services to community college educators. League for Innovation Corporate Partners also have the opportunity to sponsor various activities, including the Conference Program, keynote speakers, receptions, coffee and refreshment breaks, and more.
The tracks for this ground-breaking conference are:
- Health and Science: innovations in health and science disciplines.
