The 2011 Social Learning Summit
Please join us for the first annual Social Learning Summit, brought to you by the American University Social Media Club.
This weekend conference, April 1-3, 2011, aims to bring together students, educators, and professionals to learn from each other and with each other about the broad swath of topics at the intersection of education, innovation, and social media.
We hope to make the inaugural Social Learning Summit accessible to everyone, and all proceeds from the conference will go toward conference expenses and for future programming of the American University Social Media Club. All are invited and encouraged to join us for the event, whether for one workshop or every session throughout the course of the weekend.
Guest speakers for the conference hail include speakers from local companies such as Clearspring, media companies such as the Washington Post, American University and other schools, and some of the most prolific Twitter-ers in DC.
