EDUCAUSE 2021: Back Together Again

Linda Feng,
Principal Software Architect

After what has seemed like an eternity, it feels great to be planning to attend EDUCAUSE in person! While we have managed to stay current with colleagues through virtual gatherings over the past 2 years, nothing beats being in the same room (with masks on, of course!) ;-)

The agenda this year is filled with relevant and timely topics ranging from Cybersecurity and Privacy to Innovation and Emerging Technology. The conference is hybrid, meaning there will be sessions available for virtual attendees as well as in-person ones. The conference web site seems well designed, and there are lots of opportunities to interact online, including a trivia game over zoom!

This year, pre-conference workshops are all included with the registration fee. In particular, these two sessions look really great:

Sadly due to poor planning on my part, I’ll miss out since I arrive Tuesday evening. However, I’m all the more excited to attend some of these interesting sessions:

Wednesday
Thursday
Friday


For those attending in person in Philadelphia, I hope to see you there! Unicon will have a booth (#333) so I encourage you to stop by to say hello!
