Late last year, we notified you that the Blackboard Analytics Symposium was being rescheduled from the February dates, but we've yet to provide you with an update. I can now announce that the Symposium is scheduled for July 22-23 as a pre-conference event at BbWorld in Austin, TX. I hope this means that those of you planning to attend BbWorld as well. Note that the Symposium continues to be a free event and attendance at BbWorld is not required (but recommended, of course). We're just finalising the registration system so I'll send an update when that's ready, but for now please save the date.
If you'd like to present, we have specific guidance on submitting your proposal, but the formats are the same as last year (I hear the 5x5 presentations are really enjoyable, and I'm looking forward to those). The deadline for submissions is March 29, and we will make final decisions by April 19, so please submit your proposals. A few proposals were submitted last year, and these won't need to be resubmitted. I'll reach out to the people involved to confirm.
I'm personally excited about the event as I've wanted to attend for a long time, and I'm looking forward to meeting, and collaborating with, many community members there.
