Call for Proposals Now Open: 9th Annual Sloan-C Blended Learning Conference and Workshop
9th Annual Sloan-C Blended Learning Conference and Workshop: "Perfecting the Blend"
April 23-24, 2012
Hyatt Regency Milwaukee – Milwaukee, WI
The Sloan Consortium invites you to submit a proposal to present at the 9th Annual Sloan Consortium Blended Learning Conference and Workshop, "Perfecting the Blend," will be held on April 23-24, 2012 in downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin, at the Hyatt Regency Milwaukee.
Blended learning has transformed education by taking advantage of the best of face-to-face and online instruction, and it has led us to explore the blending of technologies, programs, student services, and faculty support to facilitate the overall improvement of education. By reflecting on research and addressing the challenges we face, we continuously look to make the learning experience for students better. Through the exploration of blended practice and research, we as educators have identified our strengths as well as the areas that need our attention in order to perfect the blend.
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.
Proposals must be submitted by October 21, 2011
Conference tracks highlight and demonstrate research, application and effective practices in the following areas:
Teaching and Learning
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 perfecting the blend. Proposals may be configured as workshops, information sessions, or posters.
