I'm attending #NASPA11. Are you?
March 4, 2011 - 4:30am

I leave for Philadelphia next Saturday to attend the 2011 NASPA Annual Conference. Thousands of student affairs practitioners and higher education vendors will be in attendance at one of the largest student affairs conferences in the U.S.

I'll be writing for Inside Higher Ed, interviewing attendees for Higher Ed Live, and facilitating two social media unsessions. I hope they have Red Bull in Philly!

NASPA is doing a terrific job of getting attendees primed to participate via the conference backchannel. I've written in the past that the best backchannels are active before, during, and after a conference, and I think that this event has had a fabulous amount of pre-conference tweets.

In addition to the backchannel, the folks at NASPA have partnered with the #SAchat to offer up an official #NASPA11 #SAchat tweetup during the conference.

Two additional highlights that I really appreciate for this year's annual conference are the inclusion of a new multi-platform mobile conference app as well as a major push for a more accessible conference.

There are going to be several sessions that will be relevant to the readers of this blog. I've been perusing the conference schedule and this is my first round list of potential sessions:

Student Affairs Technology

ACPA / NASPA Consolidation

Which sessions are you most excited about? Will you be tweeting during the conference?
