1999 C.I.T. Forums & Roundtables


1999 Conference on Information Technology

The heart of the conference program is found in the breakout sessions presented by more than 1,000 practitioners from hundreds of community colleges throughout the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and around the world. The nearly 500 sessions offered as the centerpiece of the 1999 conference will be conducted in the following formats: 1) forums–hour-long programs featuring successful practices, programs, or key issues related to information technology or demonstrations of technology applications, that are intended for audiences of approximately 50-75 people; 2) roundtables–hour-long sessions in more intimate settings of 10 to 12 participants.
