Just a quick note that today is the last day to snag the ridiculously cheap early rate for this year’s Open Education Conference, August 12-14th in Van Rock City. If you have not already, I urge you to take a gander at the program we have lined up – I can’t imagine anything that could speak more powerfully to why this is a must-attend event… This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to spend some time with many of the most accomplished and dynamic people in the field, in a relatively intimate and informal environment.
As the planning of this sucker progresses, I am also excited how this event will play out in downtown Vancouver at a time of year which usually showcases this gorgeous and energetic city at its very best. As I mentioned earlier, the conference BBQ the evening of Wednesday August 12th will be taking place at Second Beach in Stanley Park. And while I cannot announce the details just yet, we have laid the groundwork for an event the evening of Thursday August 13th that will be a lot of stimulating fun, set to take place at the Vancouver Art Gallery (next door to the conference site). As an aside, the VAG will be exhibiting Vermeer, Rembrandt and the Golden Age of Dutch Art (and more) while the conference is on.
But to tap a metaphor I know a little too well, it’s last call for happy hour today. Register now!
