The extraordinary quality of the NUTN Conferences, as cited by participants, mark it as one conference those concerned with technology applications in distance learning and videoconferencing will not want to miss.
Who should attend? Distance education administrators and practitioners,
middle/upper-level administrators, academic affairs, continuing education, higher education, distance learning directors, and business/higher education partnership.
The theme is Fostering Globalization: Piecing the Puzzle Together.
". . .Learning in the digital age is all about linking the world, linking the people, and gaining the talent and the technique to reach the next level, whatever that might be. Managing in the digital age is about inspiring others with vision, and providing building blocks while eliminating barriers. Learning in the digital age is different and also essential for personal and organizational success. . .the world is changing and we no longer have the option to ignore these changes."
