Concordia University (my employer) is organizing a conference on eLearning from April 3th to the 5th 2013:
President Alan Shepard will kick off the three-day conference with some remarks speculating on the impact of e-learning on the future of universities. The program will also showcase the wide spectrum of online, hybrid, and technology-supported teaching formats already adopted by faculty at Concordia and will feature visits from leading figures in the field, who will present keynote speeches.
Organizers of the e-Scape conference are hoping a series of plenary sessions will facilitate lively discussion about the pedagogical merits of technology tools in a relatively casual setting. The program will also provide faculty with the latest research findings on how to integrate new technologies to enhance the classroom experience.
Among the topics to be tackled: incorporating wireless student reponse systems, also known as “clickers”; successfully engaging students in massive open online courses or “MOOCs”; and integrating multimedia elements and social media to best effect in teaching.
I’ll probably present my business information literacy vidoes then…
Also worth a peek, this slide deck from Concordia’s interim provost on e-learning:
