|Greetings,It is a new year and time for another fantastic opportunity to be a part of Minnesota’s eLearning Summit 2014. Please join us on July 30-31 on the beautiful University of Northwestern campus (St. Paul) to hear keynote speakers Cable Green (Creative Commons) and Robbie Melton (Tennessee Board of Regents). Cable is an advocate for open policies that promote free and open education materials and Robbie is a mobile education innovator. You will want to hear and see these dynamic, engaging, and relevant keynoters first hand!
Our venue brings together K-12 and Higher Education practitioners to engage in presentations and conversations that promote the use of technology in teaching and learning. This affordable conference is in-state and focused on all things digital when it comes to learning – online learning, electronic portfolios, digital resources, you name it. Our Summit is designed specifically for K-12 and post-secondary educators, public and private sectors, to join together for meaningful interaction regarding effective uses of technology with teaching and learning.
Call for Proposals:
The Summit program committee is looking for good presenters from K-12 and post-secondary education. We strongly encourage those with a K-12 focus to contribute presentations at the Summit. We wish to provide a balanced set of offerings for our post-secondary and K-12 attendees. This year’s theme is Open. Online. Opportunity. This theme opens the doors and windows of our thinking and practice regarding education as we consider current realities and future possibilities. Through national leaders in education as keynote speakers, interactive breakout sessions, showcase sessions featuring innovative technologies, and various ways to network with colleagues, we will consider what we do and what we might do together.
We want your session proposals! If you have a presentation idea for the Summit, we ask that you follow this hyperlink to the Conference Call for Proposals.
If you have questions about Summit session proposals, please feel free to contact one of the conference program co-chairs.
