The specs

Breakfast, lunch, and a cocktail reception held for all registered guests.

The blurb
The New Media in Education 2008 conference, hosted by the Columbia Center for New Media Teaching and Learning, is a free, all-day event for faculty, instructors, and the Columbia community to explore emerging technologies that are connecting students globally. As curricular challenges arise and new technologies develop, the Center works with faculty to discover how digital tools can enhance teaching and learning. During this event, Columbia faculty members and leaders in the field of education and technology will host seminars and workshops that address the successes and challenges of using technologies such as simulations, wikis, and multimedia case studies and provide examples of their use at Columbia University.

The schedule

Looks like a really good conference. I'd be all over it if I didn't already have 10 other things I'm all over! Therefore, I'll wait and see who the speakers are (and what the gender balance is!) before deciding.
