Spring F2F-A Great Experience!

Face2Face Spring No Comments »

On behalf of the NDATL Board of Directors, thank you for creating a great experience for ND educators at the Spring F2F NDATL Conference in Fargo this past week.

Dave Burgess was awesome and many people indicated on their survey that they loved Dave’s infectious attitude.  That being said, many people were disappointed with our wifi issues; but reported that they loved the student sessions.  All of this information is excellent feedback and we need your feedback to improve the NDATL conferences.  If you haven’t had a chance to respond to the survey, please do so here: http://bit.ly/SpringF2F

We will leave the conference schedule open to the public. When the videos are prepped and ready, we will place the link for the playlist on the conference schedule:  http://bit.ly/NDATLSpring2015

Again, thank you for a great conference.  We hope that your spring is full of warm winds, great treasure and a pirate spirit!

Fair winds to you all,
Monte Gaukler
NDATL President
