Institute Overview
The Institute for Emerging Leadership in Online Learning (IELOL) is a unique blended-learning leadership development program sponsored by Penn State and the Sloan Consortium. Go to IELOL website

This institute is designed to serve the leadership development needs of professionals in the rapidly expanding field of online learning.
IELOL is a four-step leadership development program. The program begins with a two-week IELOL online experience (July 16–27) designed to identify and focus attention on key leadership challenges at the participants’ organizations. The second step is an on-site immersive experience at Penn State (August 6–9) that enables the IELOL participant to develop specific leadership skills, styles, networks, and strategies for the emerging leader. A three-week online follow-up program (September 17–October 5) provides senior-level mentoring and consulting for the participants as they apply the newly-acquired skills and concepts in their local settings. The program culminates with a pre-conference workshop (October 10–12) at the annual Sloan Consortium ALN conference in Orlando.
This is the fourth year for the program. We now have nearly 100 alums who continue to network and use the skills they developed in the institute. We have received many enthusiastic testimonials, and some excellent feedback that continues to help shape the program.

ascilite 2012, Wellington

Education is facing a number of significant challenges. Recent waves of global uncertainty coupled with local crisis and government reforms are reshaping the tertiary education landscape. In the backdrop of these challenges new digital technology is enabling new models of teaching and learning. Yet, serious questions remain over the sustainability of these new models and the claims about the potential of new technology, especially in the face of deeper challenges.
The aim of the 2012 ascilite conference is to explore some of these challenges and to better understand the complexity of sustainability in its widest sense. The basic premise is that what happened in the past is no longer a reliable guide to the future. Click here to access the official conference website
