The Higher Education Web Professionals Association is pleased to announce the HighEdWeb 2014 Annual Conference keynote speakers: Dr. Moira Gunn (@biotechncation) and Chris Hardwick (@nerdist).
Dr. Moira Gunn will deliver the Annual Conference’s opening keynote address on Monday, October 20. The first woman to earn a doctorate in mechanical engineering at Purdue, Dr. Gunn worked as a NASA computer scientist and engineer. Today, she educates the public about issues in science and technology on NPR's nationally-syndicated "Tech Nation" and "BioTech Nation" radio programs – and she’ll be talking with HighEdWeb next. Hear more from Dr. Gunn via her TEDx PurdueU talk.
Chris Hardwick will speak to HighEdWeb on Wednesday, October 22. Hardwick is a chart-topping podcaster, television personality, stand-up comedian, contributor for Wired magazine and creative head/CEO of the multi-platform media behemoth known as Nerdist Industries. He shares his humorous take on social media, technology and all things nerdy as the host of Comedy Central’s “@Midnight” and AMC’s “The Talking Dead,” and will bring that perspective to the HighEdWeb stage in October.
