Named for the first letters of INteract, INspire, and INnovate, this year’s IN conference will focus on the impact of scholarly content on classroom education. Publishers and other industry stakeholders will develop knowledge about the latest teaching and e-learning technologies in a series of interactive sessions. Attendees will brainstorm with colleagues, think critically about how content should be leveraged by the interactive learner, and develop and “sell” new product ideas. By the end of the three days, participants will have new product concepts and relationships that will help them advance their own organizations.  

Attendees will also have exclusive access to Outsell reports, vendor labs, and venture capital briefings, which have been prepared to complement on-site product development sessions.  

IN’s keynote speaker is Kathy Hurley, Senior Vice President, Strategic Partnerships at Pearson Education and Pearson Foundation. Hurley has served in senior executive positions with PLATO Learning, the Learning Company, Skillsbank, and IBM, and currently serves on several key industry and education advisory boards including the Partnership for 21st Century Skills (P21).  

The group will also hear from innovators in e-learning and gaming, including Paul Bergen, Director of Harvard University’s iCommons; Ariella Lehrer, PhD, President and Chief Executive Officer of Legacy Interactive; and Kara Malenfant, Scholarly Communications and Government Relations Specialist, Association of College and Research Libraries/American Library Association, and co-author of Futures Thinking for Academic Librarians: Higher Education in 2025.  

Register immediately for this not-to-be-missed event in learning innovation and scholarly communication. A special room rate of $185/night has been secured at the Sofitel Philadelphia Hotel. Call to book your room and mention “SSP IN” to receive the group discount.
