The Instructional Systems and Learning Technologies program at Florida State University will be 50 years old in 2024, so we are planning a conference and reunion to celebrate in Tallahassee on April 3-5, 2024. Information about the event can be found at this site.

It’s a work in progress, so check back often.

Conference at a Glance

  • Wednesday April 3 - Arrive in Tallahassee. Settle in, then join others for a reception at the FSU Alumni Center.
  • Thursday April 4 - Build your own agenda from over 50 professional development and networking opportunities at the Turnbull Center. Then, get ready to attend an evening event built around gathering with old friends and meeting new ones at the FSU Champions Club located at Doak Campbell stadium.
  • Friday April 5 - Choose from more professional development events at the Turnbull Center. After the official close, head home feeling energized, or stay on and enjoy the weekend.
