Save the date for the NME: New Media in Education Conference 2013 on February 1, 2013 at the Columbia University Faculty House.

This free, one-day event sponsored by the Columbia Center for New Media Teaching and Learning will bring together the Columbia community and colleagues in higher education technology for dialogue around technology in education and academic life.

Speakers from Columbia and beyond will address critical issues affecting education and technology today, such as online learning, digital publishing, and social media. Subtitled "Bits to Breakthroughs," the 2013 conference will focus on how new media can enhance educational initiatives for meaningful local and global impact.

Opportunities will abound for conference attendees to engage on these topics and get ideas for incorporating technology into their classrooms, research, and careers. Conference sponsors Apple and Echo360 will also be present.

Early registration is now open to faculty, staff, and students from Columbia University and affiliates. Stay tuned for program details and more information, or follow us on Facebook and Twitter (conference hashtag: #nme2013).
