#PSEWEB is a conference for Canadian college and university marketers, programmers, designers, digital architects and community managers. We are the people behind the online faces of our institutions. The conference was born out of the HighEdWeb Conference in the United States. It aims to bring the same amazing content, and high quality experience to those of us who happen to work in Canada.
