TLT Conference Update, 5/7
If you registered or made updates to your personal information on the morning of Monday, April 30, please check to see that this information is in our database. Due to a technical problem, all changes to our database made between 6 AM and 9:30 AM on that date were lost.
The first round of hotel assignments has been completed. If you did not receive a message from me indicating which hotel you are in, it means that we did not have your preference information by the deadline. To be included in the second round of assignments, please specify your preferences through the conference web site today if you have not already done so.
The text of earlier TLT Conference Updates can now be found on the conference web site at unctlt.org/conference2001/news.cfm (if you need hotel selection instructions, this is the place to look!). Additional information will be added to the web site soon, including track facilitator names, breakout session descriptions, and daily menus.
We also have a new mailing list for general discussion among conference participants you will soon receive a welcome message telling you how to post your thoughts to the list. There will also be track-specific mailing lists, so be sure to designate the track you are interested in through our web site. To do so, enter the registration update area at unctlt.org/conference2001/register_change.cfm; then follow the Update conference information link. We need this information as soon as possible, so that we can make final assignments of tracks to rooms at the conference center.
The list of hands-on demonstrations and short talks continues to grow. If you would like to share your work or thoughts with others in a presentation, please note that we will continue to accept applications through the end of this week. You can apply on the same page where you specify your track information, as above.
Finally, we are looking for hosts for Thursday evenings Birds of a Feather dinners. If you are interested in hosting, please call me or send . Currently, the list of BOFs includes
- Assistive technologies
- Course management systems
- Faculty conference planning
- Methods of sharing expertise among campuses
- Campus organizational structures re TLT
- On-line and electronic resources
- No agenda (just share a meal with other conference participants)
Feel free to make additional suggestions.
