14th Annual SLATE Conference
Supporting Learning & Technology in Education  
October 19-21, 2016


Plan to join us for the fourteenth annual SLATE Conference, October 19-21, 2016, at the NIU campus/conference center in Naperville, IL, which is along the Illinois Technology and Research Corridor (thirty minutes from downtown Chicago).  

Over the past fourteen years over 3,350 people representing almost 235 unique institutions from the Midwest, across the country, and around the world have attended this conference. Recognizing that deployment issues, support concerns, teaching strategies, learning styles, best practices, etc. are common among the varied CMS/LMS clients, this conference invites all faculty, system administrators, CIO's, Web developers, instructional designers, librarians, students, and user support staff from institutions that are deploying and/or currently using any Web-based tools, applications or programs, in their teaching and learning.

So come join us this year to:
  • Share ideas and learn more about what other institutions are doing
  • Discuss best practices and shared learning issues
  • Choose from over sixty different sessions in multiple tracks
  • Participate in pre-conference workshops and hands-on training sessions (TBA)
  • Participate in the Birds-of-a Feather round table discussions
  • Meet with sponsoring vendors and development partners onsite
  • Take an evening to unwind and socialize at the conference reception
