Erudition Conference 2017

Erudition Conference 2017

Rockcliffe wants to see you in Old Sacramento on October 13-14, 2017 for its first annual Erudition conference.

Registration is now open.

Get in on the early bird pricing of $125 by July 10th.

Rockcliffe’s Erudition Conference is both a catalyst and a challenge issued.  Innovation is showcased and encouraged.  Education specialists should examine their preconceptions, boundaries, assumptions, and constraints when it comes to educational design using online and blended techniques.

This conference will engage attendees in interdisciplinary opportunities to gain insights into pedagogical innovation, as well as provide opportunities to network with other educators working with immersive technologies, whether they be web-based, augmented, or virtual reality technologies in the support of learning development.

The Story So Far (June 17, 2010) ….

Rockcliffe is currently in discussions with the IRS in order to complete the process for our 501(c)(3) applications. We are down to one outstanding issue that we are hopefully going to come to an agreement on before the end of July. In the meantime you will likely have noticed several updates to our web site as we prepare for eventual success in this matter.

As you may or may not be aware, Rockcliffe is unique in that we are one of the first organizations to be applying for 501(c)(3) status as a virtual organization that is attempting to develop a viable education model that will take us from a group of volunteers, to a recognized member of the education community, to eventual accreditation as an institution of higher learning much later down the road. It has never been done before and we are looking forward to being the first such organization to do so.

The IRS has been instrumental in helping us narrow our focus down to those elements that meet the intention of the tax code for such organizations, our user community, and our organization. Looking forward to great things ahead and hopefully reporting next month of our success in reaching an agreement which has been the biggest obstancle for Rockcliffe over the past 18 months that our application has been in progess.

With thanks to all that have been helping make this possible
