Have you ever participated in a conference backchannel? Are you wondering what a backchannel is? A backchannel is the conversation that occurs (generally via a Twitter hashtag) simultaneously alongside a conference's primary events, sessions, panels, etc. It's a great way for conference attendees to share information, ask questions, participate in "tweetups," and generally add to their overall experience. Backchannels also serve as access points for folks who are not able to attend an event.

I did not attend a lot of general sessions at #EDUCAUSE10. My schedule was set up in such a way that I was usually in back-to-back meetings or trying to find time to write for the blog. One of the sessions that I had been looking forward to ever since I found it on the conference schedule was the session titled: "The Recruitment, Retention, and Advancement of Women in Higher Education IT."

It is now day 3 at EDUCAUSE 2010. I've been to countless meetings, sat in on a few sessions, and had a great time touring the exhibit hall. The amount of high level strategic thinking that's taking place has been phenomenal. The future of higher education technology is being shaped as I write this post.

The folks running the EDUCAUSE 2010 Annual Conference (#EDUCAUSE10 if you're on Twitter) have done an amazing job of providing online functionality for attendees. I have been thoroughly impressed. Customizable schedules, a really nifty mobile website, scannable ID cards, and unique hashtags for sessions are just a few of the many ways that this conference has leveraged technology.

One of my favorite personal learning networks (PLN) is the #SAchat. Student Affairs practitioners gather every week to chat via Twitter about a topic that is relevant to the field.

Thus far, blogging for Inside Higher Ed has been an amazing experience. After 23 posts, I wanted to check-in with folks and give a bit more insight into my blogging process.

I have 3 days left at Oregon State University (OSU). I've been an academic advisor for more than 3 years and have accumulated a tremendous amount of knowledge about OSU's academic processes. Life as an academic advisor consists of a never-ending stream of academic regulations, registration functions, course planning, substitutions, petitions, overrides, mentoring, teaching, and questions. When I started at OSU in 2007, I knew very little about what it meant to be an academic advisor.
