I thoroughly enjoyed this experience. I usually attend conferences related to instructional design and technology, so the academic administration focus was an entirely new perspective for me. I found it refreshing to meet enthusiastic people from all over the United States who struggled with similar problems and issues. I learned a great deal by simply listening to them describe their situations, and it gave me a broader perspective on my own university and helped me gain clarity on where I want to go in my career as an educator. A great experience.
Below I link to the posts describing my leading up to and at the conference.
