“The conversations, both in and out of session, provided me with validation of choices we’ve made in the past year, new insight on issues our school is facing, as well as an introduction to new tools and ideas”Jonathan M.
“The depth of knowledge and experience represented by the participants and their willingness to share both makes this by far the most effective professional development experience I have ever found.”Robin B.
“edACCESS provides peer-led sessions for everyone on your team, from Directors to Helpdesk and Academic Technology, all discussing similar issues and sharing applicable solutions that can be implemented realistically. For me, the days of being herded like sheep from one cavernous conference hall to another to be told about solutions that my institution cannot afford are over. This conference allows me and my team to visit an actual working campus and participate in real discussions with peers, all for a fraction of the cost of a big-box conference. edACCESS is inclusive, insightful, rejuvenating and by far the most immersive and effective IT conference you and your team will experience.”Bhavin P.
“For about five years, I looked at the edACCESS conference mailer and wanted to go. Though it is always tough for technology people to get away in the summer, the price was reasonable, and the concept of having a say in how the days unfolded was intriguing. Finally, 13 years ago I registered for my first time, and now edAccess is the best professional development event of the year for me.”Eric L.
“It’s a wonderful opportunity to network and discuss topics casually one-on-one or via a group in a manner that is more effective than via email. I’m not a fan of the term “safe space,” but the cathartic nature of this event allowed by its semi-private nature is invaluable.”Jonathan M.
“Best conference. One tidbit of knowledge pays for the entire trip.”Dave V.
“This is a great place to meet other people who do my job, where we can discuss common issues and solutions, and realize that we’re not alone.”Hal K.
“I do think the format is great and provides access to lots of information and people who can get right to the issues concerning everyone this year.”
“This is still the best peer conference…bar none.”John J.
“It feels really good to know our schools isn’t the only school struggling with the issues we struggle with.”Hal K.
“This was a chance for me to discuss my problems, listen to others’, brainstorm solutions and provide feedback to others. I gained confidence in what I’m doing but also picked up a ton of great information to apply to the work I do.”Tie W.
