SSP 2010 IN Conference

The Society for Scholarly Publishing’s 2010 IN Conference – Early-Bird Registration Deadline Extended to September 10, 2010!!!
The early-bird registration deadline has been extended to 11:59 p.m. on September 10th, leaving you just a few more days to receive a discounted registration for the SSP 2010 IN Conference on September 21-23, 2010 in Philadelphia.

By acting soon, you’ll join innovative and creative colleagues as you consider ways to imagine the “Dream E-Tool” for education and training.

Named for the first letters of INteract, INspire, and INnovate, this year’s IN Conference focuses on the impact of scholarly content in the classroom, allowing publishers and other industry stakeholders to develop a current knowledge of the latest teaching technologies in a series of interactive sessions. Over three days, attendees will interact with colleagues, think critically how their content can be highly valued by the e-learner, and return home with cutting-edge ideas and strategies that can be applied in the context of their organizations.

To kick off our collective creativity, our keynote speaker for this year’s conference will be Kathy Hurley, Senior Vice President, Strategic Partnerships, Pearson Education & Pearson Foundation, a global leader in education services and education technology. Ms Hurley has served in senior executive positions with PLATO Learning, The Learning Company, Skillsbank, and IBM and currently serves on several key industry and education advisory boards including the Partnership for 21st Century Skills (P21).

In addition to Ms. Hurley, participants will also hear presentations from key leaders in the e-learning space including Paul Bergen, Director of iCommons at Harvard University, Ariella Lehrer, PhD, President and Chief Executive Officer, Legacy Interactive, and Kara Malenfant, Scholarly Communications and Government Relations Specialist, Association of College and Research Libraries/American Library Association, and co-author of the Futures Thinking for Academic Librarians: Higher Education in 2025 report.
