Microsoft HiEd 2020 conference goes online

Most conferences have gone virtual this year thanks to the pandemic, and the Microsoft HiEd conference is no exception. According to an announcement today on the Microsoft-HiEd mailing list, the 2020 conference will be a free online event. If you work in IT in Higher Education, be sure to put this one on your calendar.

The conference will take place October 19-23, switching from the traditional three-day format to a full week. There will be four sessions per day (45 minutes each) with an extended break after the second session. Each day will start at 11 AM Central and wrap up at 4 PM. If you can’t make the live stream, all sessions will be recorded.

Registration will be available closer to the event, but the Call for Proposals is open for submissions. If you have something you would like to present to your peers, hit that link and submit your idea. You call also use the link to suggest topics for Birds of a Feather sessions.

If you work with Microsoft solutions in HiEd, this event is a fantastic opportunity to interact with your peers and get the latest from folks at Microsoft. Keep an eye on the Microsoft HiEd conference web site for news and updates. You can follow Microsoft HiEd on Twitter at @MicrosoftHiEd.
