Highlights of the 2011 Seminar

Once again, the seminar provided facilitators, presenters and EAST Initiative staff with an opportunity to learn, network, share — and do something everyone should do on their summer vacation: have some fun!

Our second annual Tech Camp preceded the Seminar and was hosted at CAST headquarters on the University of Arkansas campus in Fayetteville. The main seminar sessions at the John Q. Hammonds Convention Center in Rogers were educational, insightful and entertaining. Thrown in for good measure was a lively evening of bowling, go carts — and even dancing — at Fast Lane Entertainment.
