Last week, NASDCTEc held its annual Spring Meeting in Washington, D.C. The meeting’s full sessions and lively debate spilled onto Twitter, where participants turned in repeated feats of brevity (unlike this sentence) to sum up the meeting’s lively panel discussions and Q & A in 140 characters or fewer with #ctespringmtg. Thanks to everyone who attended, sponsored, wrote, blogged, tweeted and otherwise engaged with NASDCTEc (@careertech and facebook.com/NASDCTEc) to make last week’s meeting one to remember!
The following are some of the top tweets from this year’s meeting:
