Santa Clara Convention Center

Now in its seventh year, the Syllabus annual conference is established as one of the most important events for educators who use technology in teaching or administration. The Syllabus conference is the only conference that encompasses the entire spectrum of educational institutions from high schools through higher education and graduate programs: attendees come from two- and four-year public and private colleges, research universities, community colleges, specialized programs, and high school districts. An advisory board selected from a range of educational venues has worked with the staff at Syllabus press to prepare a program that reflects the most pertinent issues and current directions relevant to technology use in today's educational institutions.
