Become a THATCamp Columbus Sponsor

September 13, 2009 by

In the two years since it was established by CHNM, THATcamp has emerged as a phenomenon among tech-savvy and DIY-minded researchers, academics and professionals.  While there have only been two THATcamps at George Mason University, with four to five regional camps planned around the US, the event has had an impact that reaches beyond the confines of the event itself.   Before, during, and after each event, “campers” have helped create an ongoing backchannel community, wherein remote audiences are not only spectators, but also active participants in the online discussion.  With regional THATcamps sprouting up around the nation (we are very proud to be the third regional camp), a widely dispersed community is emerging that will carry the conversation year round.  Most importantly, that conversation is pushing toward a more innovative and collaborative scholarly community.

By sponsoring THATcamp, your organization can send a message to a wide audience that you are supportive of the cutting edge teaching and research that THATcamp represents.  Best of all, because it was conceived as a DIY, community-based unconference, sponsoring THATcamp Columbus is a great bargain!  If you are interested, drop us an email at .
