One of the nation’s predominant postsecondary education technology gatherings occurred Oct. 25-27 as the WICHE Cooperative for Educational Technologies (WCET) hosted its 29th annual meeting in Denver. Kicking off with a thought-provoking presentation on sensory capabilities by Mike Hess, founder and executive director of the Blind Institute of Technology, WCET program sessions spanned over 50 topics ranging from game-based learning, to the lifespan of instructional technologies, to fostering greater support for women in STEM fields.

At the meeting, faculty members Bucky Dodd of the University of Central Oklahoma and Peter P. Smith of the University of Maryland University College were honored with two of WCET’s primary annual awards for individual achievement: the Richard Jonsen Award and the Sally M. Johnstone Award, named after (respectively) a former WICHE executive director and WCET’s founder. Check out our meeting recap on the WCET Frontiers blog.
