ATE Conference Wrap-up

Monday, October 26th, 2009

What a week! Our ATETV team is back from the ATE Conference in Washington, D.C., and we’re energized by the great feedback we got from attendees. Many ATE professionals came up to us at our booth at the conference to tell us how our videos have helped them communicate their work to a wider audience.

We also got to show our videos on the big screen right before every key note speaker; the last one, Under Secretary of Education Martha Kanter even gave us a special mention in her speech.  She talked about how our efforts to connect students with many options for their future dovetails with the administration’s American Graduation Initiative to increase graduation rates and get students not only “in the door but through the door.”

You can check out some photos from the conference on our our Facebook page.  Thanks to the National Science Foundation and the American Association of Community Colleges for organizing such a great event, and to all the attendees for coming and sharing their work.  Seeing all of the amazing ATE projects on display made us that much more excited to continue to document the great work being done at community colleges and ATE centers across the country.
