The 6th Annual Emerging Learning Design Conference (ELD15) is accepting proposals for its 2016 conference, to be held June 2nd & 3rd, 2016, on the campus of Montclair State University.
PROPOSAL DEADLINE – NOVEMBER 9th, 2015. See below for details.
All proposals received by the above deadline, whether eventually accepted or not,
will be included in a drawing for a complimentary ELD16 full registration.
The theme for this year’s conference is ELD16 Conference Theme Adopt & Adapt: Connecting Learning to Life
ROLLING SUBMISSION / EARLY ACCEPTANCE MODEL
ELD uses a “rolling submission” model for proposals: every proposal will be reviewed and given feedback within 2 weeks of submission. Your submission will either be accepted or you’ll be provided feedback from our reviewers and offered an opportunity to revise and resubmit. We’ll continue this process of accepting or giving constructive feedback to proposals until all presentation slots are filled.
Submissions will still be accepted after November 9th, but they will be considered in the second round of proposals. We will work with those who submitted by the deadline and then look toward later submissions to complete the program, should presentation slots still be available.
Why this model? Two main reasons: we seen that having revise-and-resubmit cycles make our conference’s presentations the best they can be for our attendees, and accepting excellent proposals as they arrive is a great way to let our prospective audience know what to look forward to even before the whole program is finalized. In addition, this model is easier on our reviewers as we don’t get a rush of proposals on deadline day.
How do you submit a proposal? Go here to read some brief instructions on what we need in your submission, and then go HERE and supply that information. We’ll be in touch to confirm your submission was complete, and then let you know within a couple weeks the response from our reviewers.
The Emerging Learning Design Conference uses KEYWORDS to categorize presentation sessions, instead of tracks. We’ve found that keywords provide a greater flexibility for presenters to convey what audience might be most interested in their work and attendees a greater range of options to consider when trying to determine which sessions to attend.
The KEYWORD for the 6th Annual Emerging Learning Design Conference will be:
evidence of impact
games and learning
learning from failure
ELD is pleased to introduce the theme and description for the 6th Annual Emerging Learning Design Conference
ADOPT & ADAPT: CONNECTING LEARNING TO LIFE
Developments in technology and instructional design are now a constant for today’s teachers and learners, and we all need help separating the wheat from the chaff. Should I adopt this new pedagogical tool? And, how? Can I take ‘non-educational’ tech and adapt it for high-impact learning? Can we successfully integrate tech in learning contexts with tech ‘outside the classroom’? Can we leverage changes in modern life to support deeper learning? How do new developments in design and technology immerse students in learning, to promote enduring and continued growth after they leave the classroom? ELD16 is the venue to muse on these questions and present your answers to a community of fellow instructors and researchers who are looking for ways to engage with the process and improve their own practice.
It’s hard to believe that ELD15 took place over a month ago already.
Beneath each presentation listing, click on the word PRESENTATION and you’ll have access to the material each presenter has provided us.
We’d also like to remind you of two important dates coming up. The 6th Annual Emerging Learning Design Conference is scheduled for Friday, June 3rd, 2016. Mark your calendar and get that travel money put aside! :-)
The 2015 Emerging Learning Design Conference is pleased to announce that The New Media Consortium (NMC.org) will be our Event Partner for this year’s event.
NMC joined us for the first time last year and we are thrilled to renew and expand our partnership. Look for more information coming soon.
