Summer Seminar is heading to Harrison

The EAST Initiative’s Summer Seminar 2016 will be hosted at the L.E. “Gene” Durand Conference Center on the Center Campus of North Arkansas College in Harrison, Arkansas. Tech Camp, held immediately before Summer Seminar, will be hosted at the same location.

 

Summer Seminar gathers facilitators from EAST programs from five states for three days of professional development. Breakout sessions topics run the gamut from covering the latest technology, to innovative classroom approaches to tips for new facilitators with veteran educators sharing best practices.

 

“The Durand Center is a beautiful facility with ample space to handle our extended EAST family, as well as the technological capacity to keep us on the cutting edge for introducing new technology,” said Jessica Dunham, events manager for the EAST Initiative.

 

The 22,000 square-foot Durand Center, built in 2008, is located in the historic downtown Harrison, within walking distance of restaurants and shopping.

 

Summer Seminar will take place from July 20-22, 2016; advance registration is $200. The optional Tech Camp will be held July 19; advance registration is $50.
