Flip the Conference

A great idea inspired by flipped classrooms: Distribute videos (and slides perhaps) of talks accepted to conference, then invite everyone to physically meet and discuss them (or discuss whatever). This would be awesome, and I know many people who attend conferences simply to meet with peers. The talks are a place to catch up on sleep from the late night chats, brainstorms, and debates.

  1. Hello,

    I reviewed your site and it seems we could compliment your current content. Let me start by saying great job you’ve obviously put a lot of handwork and long hours into producing your website! I know producing high quality content on a daily basis can be time consuming and I believe I have a solution that can help you on slow news days. First Impression Interactive has a team of house writers that can provide you with unique custom written content covering the following topics: choosing the right school and program, benefits of advancing your education, how to balance work and continuing education, and more. I’m certain we could provide some valuable unique articles that would engage your users and expand your site. This is provided completely and entirely free of charge to our partners.

    We also have some small teaching degree search and job search widgets that allow users to search degree options for free. Our job search widgets allow users to search the largest job database on the internet with one click, this pull in jobs from every job board and website into one. For placing these on your site we would be able compensate you for each user that clicks, creating a new incremental revenue stream for your website.

    Please let me know with whom I could talk to about this.

    Thank you
    Mike Gailwind
