Conference Mission

The mission of the Emerging Learning Design Conference is to provide a space to showcase innovation as well as to engage in a vibrant and dynamic discourse regarding pedagogy and how technology can better enhance or transform it.

2017 Conference Theme
Where Teaching, Learning, and Technology Converge

When teaching, learning, and technology converge we find the potential for an inclusive learning experience that is both engaging and connected to curricular needs, without being dated.  21st century technologies provide a common space to explore and experience in an engaging and/or collaborative educational experience grounded in knowledge, strong pedagogy and learning theory.
Consider the times of convergence you’ve experienced – What made it effective and where were your challenges?  What worked, and what needed refining?   What were your ingenious, light-bulb moments and what were the lead balloons? Share your stories and your insight as we discuss where teaching, learning, and technology converge.
