Exploring at Berkeley
Syllabus2004 attendees take their quest for knowledge to UC-Berkeley, one
of the world’s leading academic institutions.
Since 1868, UC-Berkeley has attracted visitors and students worldwide to the
central campus of the University of California, nestled among 178 acres of majestic,
wooded Northern California beauty. What better setting for a day of learning
and exploration as attendees walk the campus and partake of vigorous on-site
sessions and stimulating discussion groups? Syllabus2004 at Berkeley allowed
attendees to see and experience the latest education technology in action with
leading scholars and technologists.
|The Berkeley campus is renowned for its libraries, labs, research and
publications, and the distinction of its faculty and students. The faculty
includes eight Nobel Laureates, 124 members of the National Academy of Sciences,
19 MacArthur Fellows, 81 Fulbright Scholars, three Pulitzer Prize winners
and more Guggenheim Fellows (138) than any other university in the US.
