Seriously though, this is going to be a great event. As of right now, we have over 100 attendees with about 1/3 from HW (of course). A few quick notes before the official e-mailed info below.
There will be free food! (That alone could sell it.)
You needn’t attend the entire day. This isn’t mandatory; no attendance will be taken. Think of this as a Bb smorgasbord.
A majority of the sessions with be from folks from Bb. You have a chance to talk right to the horse’s mouth. The rest are done by skilled CCC faculty.
There really is something for everyone. It’s not a training, it’s an exploration into the features of Bb AND how to apply them to your teaching
