HigherEdCamp is the only unconference dedicated to the improvement of higher education through democratic professional development. Innovating in higher education requires an understanding of emerging technologies, adoption of open standards, and participation in evolving communication channels. Every voice is needed to create greater opportunities for post-secondary excellence and that includes you!
Colleges and universities face a challenging economic environment. The pace of pedagogical, organizational, and technological development is not slowing down. We are a gathering of full and part time faculty members, administrators, technologists, students, and researchers from the Philadelphia area and beyond. This is a day of open discussion on the advancement of higher education and the technology that powers it.
