10th Annual Sloan-C Blended Learning Conference and Workshop

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.

Retaining Students in Online Education – September 2012

26th to 28th September 2012
Phoenix, United States of America

Student

Join us in Phoenix to discuss practical strategies for online student retention. You will be engaged in small and large group discussions, brainstorming, and planning as you develop an action plan specific to the needs of your institution.

Learn why online students sometimes fail and what you can do to prepare them for success.

The promise and potential to transform lives through online learning are enormous. All too often, though, the promises of certificates and degrees earned online are never met. Students fail to reach their potential, struggling to complete their coursework at a distance or dropping out altogether. In order to improve online student retention, especially during these difficult economic times, institutions need methods to track students, document progress, and put specific practices in place to ensure success.
