On behalf of the conference steering committee, welcome to the 12th Annual Online Learning Consortium Blended Learning Conference and Workshop, “Blended Learning: Leading Education’s Digital Future.” This year’s conference theme signifies the tremendous promise of blended teaching and learning—in all of its diverse forms—to assume a more prominent role in shaping the higher education landscape.
One of the highlights of this year’s program is a keynote presentation by internationally known eLearning trainer, speaker and author, Jane Bozarth, who will discuss the power and prevalence of social media in education, as well as strategies for the integration of low cost technologies into the design of blended and online courses. We are also delighted to welcome Ryan Baker, an expert in human-computer interaction and educational data mining, for a plenary presentation featuring his groundbreaking work on the use of analytics to track student learning and engagement in a MOOC, and the implications of his findings for blended learning.
As always, our two-day conference program includes a variety of featured sessions, interactive workshops, information sessions, vendor showcases, and Discovery sessions organized around four conference tracks: Teaching & Learning Effectiveness; Faculty Development & Student Support; Blended Models & Design, and Institutional Leadership & Strategy. For participants interested in new and emerging educational technologies, we are pleased to include the ever-popular Technology Test Kitchen in this year’s conference program. Finally, we will wrap up the conference with a set of “deep dive” sessions—informal discussion sessions organized around specific blended teaching and learning topics and facilitated by experts in those areas.
We look forward to seeing you in beautiful Denver, Colorado!
