Spring 2007 - What is a Wizard Conference?

SUNY Wizard Conferences are geared toward the technical community in SUNY and are held as needed, usually twice a year. They address specific technology-related issues that are important to SUNY at the time. The attendees are from throughout SUNY and include IT professionals from campus CIO's to DBA's to technical assistants.
While we may invite some vendors to offer or assist with sessions, we require they provide technical staff to present and focus only on the technologies we invite them to address - no marketing.
Wizard Conferences can include facilitated sessions, roundtables and informal discussions where SUNY folks can get together to collaborate and share what is happening on their campuses and attend relevant sessions.
If you have an idea or want to request a certain presentation, please email Margaret Murad, Technical Program Manager at the SUNY Training Center.
Also, check out the SUNY Learning Network "AC/MID Summit/DOODLE Meeting" March 7-9 at The Marx Hotel in Syracuse. This event offers sessions on Instructional Design, ANGEL migration, and more and is open to all, regardless of LMS/CMS or SLN affiliation.
