STEMxCon - Today Is the Final Deadline for Proposals; Great Keynotes + Sessions; Need Volunteers!

The end of the day today is the final deadline to get in a proposal to speak at next week's free and online 2013 Global STEMx Education Conference (STEMxCon.com), September 19 - 21. This is a great opportunity to share your work or ideas!

We have an absolutely terrific lineup of keynote speakers. They are listed below, and after the reminder plea for moderator volunteers, you'll also find the current list of all conference sessions. To get times for the keynotes or sessions, go to the conference "attending and schedule" page, which will also have the schedule in customized time zones starting early next week.

Volunteering: as with our other conference 2.0 events, the real party takes place in the volunteer moderator lounge, where a devoted, energetic, and highly beloved group of volunteer moderators keeps the conference running and humming. If you haven't been a volunteer moderator before, there's nothing quite like the camaraderie and the excitement that develops jumping in and out of session rooms and helping presenters and participants have a great experience. Please consider becoming part of this elite team by signing up at http://stemxcon.com/group/volunteers-2013 and using the booking calendar to schedule volunteer time. Huge thanks!

Recordings: all conference sessions are recorded and are available almost immediately after being given. Be sure to come sign up on the conference website to be notified of recording availability. MP3 and MP4 versions will be available as well as the full Blackboard Collaborate recordings, although they take some days to process.

Spreading the word: this a free event, so be sure to tell others! Our Twitter hashtag is #stemx13, and we have some resources for publicizing at http://stemxcon.com/page/publicity.

See you online!
