Get Ephrem off my back! Read this and attend if you are so inclined.

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
