Don’t forget the web.

I got my start on the web in 1995. By 1997, I was knee-deep in community management – rallying supporters, meeting people with shared interests and collaborating on content with people around the world. And we did it with the web *cough*geocities & tripod*cough* This week is the world wide wonderful web’s 25th birthday, and also in much smaller news, the end of our 2014 #PSEWEB Call for Speakers.

Hidden on-campus treasure (my new conference addiction)

Adding six days of development into my year cost two business days (four weekend days) and less than $400. One was free, one offered a $10 day pass and two were within walking distance of either my desk or my house. It’s easy to create an Apple product desk fortress and say that these conferences didn’t talk about marketing, they don’t apply to what we do. But I disagree.

2013 #PSEWEB Speakers & Sessions Announced

Visit our Sessions Page to read more about each session, and our Speakers Page to read more about our amazing speakers.

As always, we thank our early bird attendees for helping us pick the program – it is based entirely on the votes (and good taste) of early bird ticket holders.

With these speakers, Stewart Foss’ keynote, the first Canadian eduStyle awards and three additional speakers to be announced in the coming days (including our second keynote speaker), we hope you’ll agree that this looks to be the richest #PSEWEB to date and we can’t wait to share it with you!

Stewart Foss & eduStyle at #PSEWEB 2013

We’re pleased to announce our first keynote speaker for #PSEWEB 2013, Stewart Foss! Stewart’s keynote will focus on ‘Student Experience Design.” What makes a website good? How can you make it better? What can we learn from the best? Stewart will share his thoughts about how we can raise the bar in higher-ed web design and how we can transition from good user experience design to good student experience design.

All Call! What do you want to see at #PSEWEB 2013?

Last year, we had seen email missing on the program for year after year and as one of the highest return digital marketing methods, I threw it in the ring.  One of my favourite aspects of the conference is that it ultimately doesn’t matter what I think should be onstage because the early bird ticket holders decide what they want to see. We also had several requests last year for… Read more »
