Chalk & Wire Learning Technologies Partners' Conference 2018
June 19-21, 2018
Columbia, South Carolina.
In our never-ending quest to stay one step ahead of your needs, Chalk & Wire has developed the most advanced suite of technology tools and processes to assist you in validating and monitoring student learning, all the while keeping our focus on improving the learning experience for all stakeholders.

Getting data in front of the people who need it is at the heart of our most recent developments. We are working to make reporting even more intuitive… democratizing data, so to speak.

In addition to highlighting feature enhancements and upgrades to CWPro, attendees will get a hands-on MyMantl™ experience and be able to explore the benefits that badging/micro-credentialing can provide, and see first-hand, how easy it is to implement. We will also present modules 3 and 4 of Chalk & Wire’s Excellence in Assessment program and attendees will receive curriculum they can take back to campus and share with colleagues.

Who should attend?
Anyone currently using, or considering the use of, Chalk & Wire’s learning technologies at a program or institutional level. If you are responsible for the design, implementation, or refinement of your assessment system and workflows; or if you are tasked with the reporting and analysis of data, then this conference is designed for you.

Getting There
By Air
We suggest flying into the convenient Columbia Metropolitan Airport (CAE), which is served by multiple airlines providing nonstop flights from Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington, DC and New York.

Although the hotel does not provide shuttle service, the Columbia Marriott Downtown is less than eight miles from the Columbia airport (CAE). There are numerous shuttle, taxi and shared ride options, so a rental car is not necessary. Also, many restaurants, cafes and bistros are within walking distance of the hotel.

We have secured a block of rooms for the conference at the Columbia Downtown Marriott located at 1200 Hampton Street, Columbia, SC 29201. The hotel is just a few blocks from the Alumni Center. Reserve your room as soon as possible as accommodations are available on a first come first served basis!

The special conference rate includes free internet and is available from June 18th to June 21st.

If you have any questions about the conference, please contact Gigi Devanney, Director of Marketing/Communications at gigi@chalkandwire.com. A complete agenda and other details will be sent to all attendees at the beginning of May.
