Dear Commons Community,
As a track chair for the 10th Annual Sloan Consortium Blended Learning Conference and Workshop (July 8 and 9, Hyatt Regency, Milwaukee, WI), I would like to bring to your attention our Call for Presentations and invite you to submit a proposal. Proposals for presentations must be submitted by February 11th, 2013 at http://sloanconsortium.org/conference/2013/blended/call-for-presentations. The Sloan Consortium Blended Learning Conference and Workshop: Trend to Blend: Lessons from the Field reflects a renewed interest in blended learning while emphasizing the importance of research and proven effective practices of the past decade in guiding our future.
Our conference seeks proposals for workshops and presentations that specifically address the many facets of blended learning. We look to share best practices and persistent challenges in blended learning as they relate to pedagogy, learning activities, instructional design and course development, faculty development and training, student services, accessible learning opportunities, academic planning and strategy, and research through the assessment and evaluation of learning.
Faculty, students, instructional designers, instructional technologists and academic administrators are encouraged to submit proposals which are engaging, informative and interactive. These sessions can be targeted to all attendees of beginners, intermediates, or experts.
Proposals are requested in five tracks: teaching and learning, research, student support, faculty development and support, and leadership and administration. Proposals may be configured as workshops, information sessions, or posters.
