eLearning Strategies Symposium
Share your online learning expertise with California educators and policy makers at the second annual eLearning Strategies Symposium on December 6th and 7th, 2013. Having exceeded our expectations last year, we’re looking for a variety of sessions, geared towards educators and administrators, about online and blended learning.
Two session proposal windows are offered. During this Early Bird window, which closes May 2nd, we’ll be filling two-thirds of the concurrent sessions. A shorter, Just in Time, proposal window opens mid-August and closes in mid-September for the final third. Speaker acceptances for the first round will be emailed the week of May 13th. All speakers will receive a complementary registration to the symposium. Industry-sponsored sessions must include a Corporate Partnership Application.
Symposium presentations should focus on one of eSS’ five strands:
- Big Picture, which includes administration, management, evaluation, research, policy or advocacy;
- Content (curriculum and online course development, best practices, accessibility, or instructional design);
- Capacity Building (professional development);
- Gear (tools, technologies, learning management systems, or application development); or
- Pedagogy (engaging students, teaching and learning pedagogies, blended learning models, learning communities, or assessment).
Symposium presentations are one-hour in duration with one session each hour being live-streamed and recorded for future distribution. Speakers may opt-out of live-streaming.
With online and blended learning growing 20-25% each year and with more than 200,000 California students participating in virtual or blended learning, now is the time for a California conference focused on teaching and learning online. Please join us in Costa Mesa next December.
