Being one of the most visited cities in Europe, Barcelona is a dynamic Mediterranean city. It is the perfect place to enjoy and relax in.
Barcelona has a fascinating history. The most famous attractions include some Gaudi’s buildings such as the Sagrada FamÃlia, (UNESCO World Heritage Site Church), Casa Mila the Casa Batllo and the city’s Gothic Quarter among others.
Also, you will be able to relax in any of Barcelona’s golden sandy beaches. Some of them are only 10 minutes from the city centre. Additionally, you will experience its most pleasant weather in June and July, making these months particularly attractive to visit this city.
Finally, you should not miss its traditional gastronomy, which is well known worldwide. Barcelona’s location, between the sea and the mountain provides the best combination for the best gastronomic experience.
Come and experience it for yourself!

10th Annual Sloan-C Blended Learning Conference and Workshop
Milwaukee, United States
8 to 9 July 2013
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 future is blended learning. There are many paths we can take to meet our goal in ensuring quality for students, and we need to explore the contingencies to make sound decisions in determining our roadmap. The changing landscape is evident in new terminology (flipped classrooms), new growth in sectors (k-12), and new financial support for blended programs (NGLC). This transformation reveals new ideas about blended learning. As a community, we look to research and evidence to assist us in answering these questions and to drive us into the blended learning future.
Now, with a decade of experience and knowledge, we look for opportunities to map our future by continuing to innovate and collaborate at the 10th Annual Sloan Consortium Blended Learning Conference and Workshop providing an unforgettable experience.
Call for Presentations:
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 are requested in five tracks: teaching and learning, research, student support, faculty development and support, and leadership and administration. Proposals may be configured as workshops, information sessions, or posters.

The 7th International Conference will once again be held in Sydney after the success of the six previous International LAMS Conferences from 2006 to 2011; four European Conferences (2007 – Greenwich, 2009 – Cadiz, 2009 – Milton Keynes and Oxford in July 2010) as well as the 2011 International Conference held at NTU, Singapore.
The focus of this years conference will be “Surveying the Learning Design Landscape”. We will look at technologies, applications and approaches that support sharing, collaboration and open access to knowledge and resources and the differing implications for individuals and organizations in a changing world. Importantly, we will also capture the experience of those who have used LAMS & Learning Design and shared some of the lessons learnt about sharing great ideas in higher education, the K-12 sector, vocational and professional education.
