Call for Proposals Now Open: 10th Annual Sloan-C Blended Learning Conference and Workshop
The Sloan Consortium invites you to submit a proposal to present at the 10th Annual Sloan Consortium Blended Learning Conference and Workshop, to be held July 8-9, 2013 in downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
This year’s conference theme, “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. Although the field of blended learning is not new, we are witnessing a revival in interest around blended learning for a greater array of educational institutions working to improve the overall state of education in our society. Lessons are not only learned from our experiences in practice, but they are also learned from our research over the past decade, and they assist us in making decisions when it comes to strategy, implementation, pedagogy, research, and support. These lessons guide our institutions.
Our conference seeks proposals for workshops and presentations that specifically address the many facets of blended learning. We are seeking submissions that emphasize best practices and address 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.We look to bring together a diverse group of people from around the world (stars, emerging talent, and locals) to share our own lessons from the field in order to move blended learning from a trending of a unique instructional modality to the norm of learning from the cradle to the grave.
Proposals must be submitted by February 11, 2013.
Conference tracks highlight and demonstrate research, application and effective practices in the following areas:
- Teaching and Learning
- Student Support
- Faculty Development and Support
- Leadership and Administration
We would like to encourage proposals from those in quickly-evolving institutions, such as K-12 schools and community colleges, as well as proposals that explore emerging technologies (mobile, social media, open education resources) to assist fellow educators in learning lessons from the field. Proposals may be configured as workshops, information sessions, or electronic poster presentations.
