EDI Hosts First Conference
The Educational Design Institute hosted the first EDI Conference on March 30-31, 2010, at the Riley Center in Meridian, Miss. Thirty-four people -- including K-12 educators and physical plant managers, community college leaders, and MSU architecture students -- participated in the conference. Dr. Kenneth Tanner was the keynote speaker, and sessions covered the following topics:
-- An Update from Safe and Orderly Schools
-- Working with the Bureau of Building
-- Working with Federal Granting Agencies
-- 21st Century Classroom Design
-- Green Schools
-- LEED for Schools
-- Geo-source Heat Pumps
Based on the positive feedback from this year's conference, we are already looking forward to the 2011 EDI Conference.
EDI would like to thank Dr. Ed Davis with the MSU Rural Community College Leadership Program for his help with the 2010 conference.
