The 87th Annual Distance Education and Training Council (DETC) Conference - San Francisco

By CCU Staff

The city by the bay hosted the DETC's 87th Annual Conference. Held April 14-16, 2013, at the Intercontinental Mark Hopkins Hotel in San Francisco, CA, the conference offered the opportunity for colleagues to gather and exchange ideas. Attending the conference were CCU's President Tom Neal, Vice President Shelly Marquardt, Director of Planning and Compliance Natasha Franklin, and Chief Academic Officer Murl Tucker, Ph.D. The conference included workshops on: The future of accreditation, massive online courses (MOOCs), a presentation of outstanding graduates and famous alumni, outcomes assessment, business standards, and research educational standards.

Another highlight of the conference was the going away dinner for DETC Executive Director Mike Lambert. Held at the "Top of the Mark" - the famous club on top of the Mark Hopkins hotel, guests dined, toasted Mike, and thanked him for his many years of dedicated service to DETC and wished him well on his new adventure. After a long and distinguished career as the head of the Distance Education and Training Council, we would like to take this opportunity to say "Thanks Mike!"
