The Sloan Consortium and MERLOT invite you to submit a proposal for the 7th Annual Emerging Technologies for Online Learning International Symposium, to be held April 9-11, 2014 at the Sheraton Dallas Hotel in Dallas, Texas.
The Emerging Technologies for Online Learning International Symposium, a joint Symposium of Sloan Consortium and MERLOT, is designed to bring together individuals interested in the review and evaluation of emerging technologies' impact on online teaching and learning. We seek interactive sessions that engage and inform participants. Presenters and facilitators from the following areas are encouraged to submit proposals:
Proposed sessions can be targeted to all attendees or novice, intermediate, or expert levels of proficiency.
The symposium, devoted to the emerging and innovative uses of technology designed to improve teaching and learning online, will accept presentations that offer attendees “real solutions,” pioneering practices, and future trends. Symposium tracks highlight and demonstrate research, application and effective practices and emerging technological tools in the following areas: (click on track name to go to submission form, which will be available at some time on Aug 30, 2013.)
- Learning Environments
- Open Education
- Evidence-based Learning
- Faculty and Student Development
- Innovative Media and Tools
ET4Online seeks submissions which emphasize evidence-based practice and the impact of topic tracks on teaching practices and student learning outcomes using a range of research methodologies (e.g. case study, longitudinal comparisons, within group comparisons, quasi-experimental, etc.) and rigorous approaches to the analysis of supporting data, qualitative or quantitative.
The Conference Committee is also planning another Unconference Event to take place in conjunction with the 2014 ET4Online Symposium. More details on this event will be forthcoming as conference planning continues.
