Please!! If you get this pushed through, I can come to Colorado for two
weeks straight, would LOVE that. If we can show there's a bridge, I
will get to attend both instead of picking just one or the other!

> Hi All,


> As most of you know, the EDUCAUSE annual conference is in Denver this

> year,

> November 3-6. Conveniently, Accessing Higher Ground (AHG) is the week

> immediately following EDUCAUSE (November 10-14), and is just up the

> road

> from Denver in Westminster, Colorado. AHG is an annual conference

> hosted by

> the University of Colorado at Boulder that focuses specifically on IT

> Accessibility in higher education:


> http://www.colorado.edu/atconference/


> I'm working with AHG organizers to explore the possibility of


> an

> extra day of intensive training sessions on Monday November 9,


> specifically to EDUCAUSE attendees. Before committing to doing so,

> we're

> seeking feedback on the following questions:


> (a) Would you, or would someone at your institution, be interested in

> sticking around after EDUCAUSE for a few extra days in Colorado, in

> order to

> attend the special AHG pre-conference?


> (b) If so, what topics would you especially be interested in receiving

> intensive training on?


> Thanks!
