Using the Design Engine in class
Facilitator: Lizabeth Arum (l.arum[at]ultimaker.com) (Ultimaker)
After a few initial projects to introduce students to 3D printing, many teachers are at a loss for what comes next. Inspired by teacher feedback, Matt Griffin and I developed the Design Engine , an educational design card game that provides a series of timed and untimed challenges for students of all experience levels. During this workshop, I will run through two rounds of the game. We will explore how the game can be modified to fit personal teaching styles and how it can be used as an icebreaker or as a long term assignment. Experience the creative process first hand and learn to transform an idea into a tangible object.

7th Annual Emerging Learning Design Conference – Call for Proposals

Emerging Learning Design is NO LONGER accepting proposals for the
7th Annual Emerging Learning Design Conference (ELDc17)

The theme for this year’s conference is
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.
Submission are encouraged that tie to the theme, our mission, or, any of our ELDc17 Keywords

ELDc17 Submission Timeline

  • Early Acceptance Proposal Submission Deadline – October 10th, 2016 passed

For details on specific volunteer opportunities please read the descriptions below


EMERGING LEARNING DESIGN

ELD Executive Board

The ELD Executive Board is the life blood of the conference planning process. A medium size group, members have the opportunity to think about the “big picture” of the conference and it’s mission. Much of the work is through conversations around educational topics and trends; therefore, as a member of the Executive Board. it is critical to have an open mind and to be able to work collaboratively. Every major aspect of the conference event planning is discussed with the organizing committee at virtual meetings. These meetings, held entirely online, average once a month for an hour; however, at the height of the planning process, a second monthly meeting is sometimes needed. During the peak planning time frame (late summer/early fall), as well as on occasion as necessary, there will be tasks to preform between meetings (investigating keynote suggestions, theme research, brainstorming, etc.). During the months where this is necessary, an additional 2-4 hours per month are needed.

Membership / Subscribers

Since its inception, the Emerging Learning Design Conference has worked with a variety of partners who have supported the conference via our Partners Program. The Partners Program, and very structure of our member organization, are being reconsidered by the ELD Executive Board. If you have experience with membership or subscriber environment, please volunteer for this group.

Social Media/Communications

Engage community members and promote both the annual conference and journal by sharing, liking, +ing, and spreading the posts to their own networks. ELD social media efforts currently focus on our Facebook Group, our LinkedIn Community, and our Twitter Community. Depending on the individual, other opportunities include:

  • Manage and schedule messaging through various social media channels
  • Monitor conversations regarding ELD on various social media channels
  • Respond to any inquires, concerns or other comments made on social media channels regarding
  • Organize a group of volunteers to assist in social media efforts
  • Identify speakers, ideally ELD conference presenters and journal contributors, to host monthly
  • Promote ELD conference and partners through social media channels
  • Manage social media on the day of ELD conference

Time commitment is minimal June-December (2-3 hours per week) but will increase January – May (3-4) in order to promote the conference.


EMERGING LEARNING DESIGN CONFERENCE

Proposal Review Committee (CPRC)

Under the leadership of the Program Chair, members of the CPRC review submitted proposals for conference presentations. As a conference focused on the interdisciplinary edge of teaching, learning and technology, we are always looking for people to contribute their expertise and interests. With our collaborative revise-and-resubmit method, our reviewers get a chance to do more than just be gatekeepers: they can meaningfully improve the quality of the proposals they see. The time commitment is quite light; proposals are brief and we aim to have a focused set of review criteria that give constructive feedback to submitters. You do need to be responsive, though: rapid feedback cycles are a priority! Conference submissions are accepted from (roughly) November through February.

Evaluation & Assessment

The role of the Evaluation and Assessment group is to organize evaluation efforts for the conference. This involves creating an overall conference survey with input providing feedback on the current conference as well as input for planning the next conference. Individual session surveys are created to provide direct feedback to the presenter as well as to input to the program committee when making selections for the next conference. Survey questions are well established so updating and customizing the surveys for the current year does not take long.
Reviewing data from previous years can happen anytime during the year. Creating surveys (1 overall conference surveys, and brief surveys for each session) is work that can be completed in early April, once the program comes together. During the conference, this group will monitor the survey software and encourage survey participation. Following the conference, data extraction and analysis will require some time with feedback being provided to the Executive Board. Additionally, feedback for individual presenters will be organized into a report and shared with each presenter. Post-conference (early June) will be the heaviest work time for the Evaluation and Assessment group.


JOURNAL OF EMERGING LEARNING DESIGN

Submission Review Committee (SRC)

Under the leadership of the Editor(s)-in-Chief of the Journal of Emerging Learning Design, the SRC will review articles that result from proceedings of the ELD

conference as well as any articles submitted for consideration in a special issue.

ELDc17 Call for Proposals FAQ

09/30/2013

How do I submit a proposal?

Visit our online submission form and enter the details it requires. Simple!

What does my proposal need to contain?

You’ll enter all the information on your presentation directly into the form. We need:

  • basic contact information
  • your proposed title (75 character limit)
  • a 500-word abstract
  • the intended structure of the session, meaning, how you expect to spend your time during the session. This should include, but is not limited to: what activities, topics, and/or demonstrations attendees might experience, if your presentation is primarily a talk/lecture, topics you intend to discuss (and in what proportions)
  • The intended session type. (Please read the descriptions of session types here.) Like all aspects of the proposal, session types aren’t “cast in stone”; the Program Committee may suggest changing the session type at some stage in the review process.
  • a set of outcomes/take aways that your audience can expect as a result of attending your presentation.Your attached proposal needs to have enough basic information in it for our reviewers to give you constructive feedback .

Remember, we are employing a revise-and-resubmit model, so the more information you can give us about your proposal, the better we can evaluate it and guide you towards a presentation that will suit ELDc17’s audience and be an effective platform for your ideas.

It should NOT contain the following:

Identifying information – the reviews are double-blind (you don’t know who is reviewing, they don’t know who is submitting).

What are the different session types?

A description of the different session types can be found here.

When is the deadline to submit.

ELD uses a rolling submission model with a revise and resubmit process, similar to the way a journal works. 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. The initial submission deadline is October 10, 2016. All proposals received by the above deadline, whether eventually accepted or not, will be included in a drawing for a complimentary ELD17 full registration.
Submissions will still be accepted after October 10th, but they will be considered in the second round of proposals. We will work with those who submitted by the initial 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.

Are there grants or funding opportunities for either attendees or presenters?

ELD works to keep the annual conference as reasonably priced as possible, allowing greater opportunity for those who would like to attend. At this time, we do not have any grants for attendance or presenting. Those who have a presentation accepted are provided a code that allows for a discount on registration. Although a discount will be offered for ELDc17, pricing and discount information is not yet available.

I don’t see my question answered here.

No problem, just write to us at eldc.program@gmail.com and someone from the Program Committee will respond.


ELD14 Call for Proposals

The #ELD14 Call for Proposals is now officially CLOSED for NEW submissions. Due to the revise and resubmit process, there are still presenters working on revising previous submissions. If you are submitting a REVISED proposal, you can still use this form.

We’ll continue this process of accepting or giving constructive feedback to proposals until all presentation slots are filled or we reach our deadline date of January 26th, 2014, when we’ll make final decisions on the remaining available sessions.
Why this model? Two main reasons: we think that having revise-and-resubmit cycles will 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 to http://bit.ly/eld14c4p and supply that information. We’ll be in touch to confirm your submission

was complete, and then let you know within a couple weeks what our reviewers thought of it.

Virtual Instructor-Student Interaction in an Asynchronous Learning Network

02/21/2013

Presented by Christopher Donoghue

Instructors and students participating in Asynchronous Learning Networks (ALN) are frequently dissatisfied with the frequency and quality of instructor-student interaction in distance education. Literature on how to add and enhance real interactions between instructors and students is abundant but there is a scarcity of attention devoted to virtual forms of instructor-student interaction in the delivery of course content. In this workshop, participants will be trained to engage in Virtual Instructor-Student Interaction (VISI) using Qualtrics, an online survey writing program, which enables them to

interact with students during the actual time in which they are receiving course content.

Partnership Opportunities

09/21/2011

Thank you for your interest in partnering with us for the Emerging Learning Design 2012 conference. Below please find a detailed explanation of the different levels and benefits of our Partnership Program.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at eld at mail dot montclair dot edu or by calling AJ Kelton at 973.655.7511
IMPORTANT UPDATE – CONFERENCE DISCOUNT PERCENTAGES INCREASED
While we work on a new chart (below), please note that the percentage discount provided for each Parntership level have been increased. Silver will get a 10% discount on additional registrations, Gold will get 15%, Platinum will get 20%, and the Event Sponsor will get 30%.

The two main Partnership categories are Corporate Partners and Education Consortium Partners.
The Education Consortium Partners (or EDU Consortium Partners) are educational institutions, whereas the Corporate Partners are our business colleagues. Both receive the same benefits listed below, except the EDU Consortium Partners will not get display space in the lunch area.
The EDU Consortium Partnership is structured more for annual benefits. Involvement in the conference is one component and there will be one, or more, events that take place between conferences that will be exclusive to our EDU Consortium Partner institutions.
We are pleased to announce that between August 2012 and April 2013 we will be hosting two, and possible three, synchronous web-based events (webinars) exclusively for our EDU Consortium Partner institution. The dates of the two session will be announced later this year.
2012 Online Event
More Than a Helpdesk: Expanding the Value Proposition of IT and EdTech
IT is one of the largest expenditures on any campus and yet the organization behind it is all too often seen as merely a service center rather than a partner for innovation. In this session, we will explore ways that university IT and Edtech groups can begin to change the way that they are perceived on campus as well as expanding their value into extraordinary partnerships and visionary thought leadership.
Guest Presenter: Sarah Smith-Robbins, Director of Emerging Technology at the Kelley School of Business, Indiana University Bloomington.
2012 Online Event
Presented by Pearson
Details and Presenter information coming soon

There are four types of Partnership: Event, Platinum, Gold, and Silver. All levels will receive the following:

  • organization name listed on Partner’s page on the web site and in the printed program
  • complimentary registration(s) to the event
  • a percentage discount on additional registrations
  • Corporate Partners only will also be allocated table space in the Conference Center during lunch

Along with all of the above, Gold, Platinum, and Event Partners will also get:

  • their name on the cover of the printed program
  • advertising space in the printed program
  • name mention on the slide projected before and after events in the main session room
  • a hand out for distribution on our main table (All collateral material will be located on a table just beyond the registration desk. Attendees will need to walk by these tables after registering and the tables will remain in place for the entire conference.)
  • to provide SWAG for attendees, to be picked up either upon checking in at the registration desk or for distribution on our main table
  • sponsorship of a conference sessions (Please see the section below on Sponsoring Conference Session for more details.)
  • invitation(s) to the private sit-down dinner and networking event following the conference (This event will feature a pre-dinner open bar and full three-course, sit-down, table service dinner. Along with other guest, this event will include Conference Keynote Dr. Joshua Danish and Conference Chair, AJ Kelton.)

Along with all of the above, Platinum and Event Partners will also get:

  • logo listed on our Partner’s page on the web site and in our printed program
  • name listed on the home page of the conference web site
  • name listed on the conference badge holder

  • concurrent session(s) slot

Event Partners, in addition to the largest advertising allocation, the most number of complimentary registrations, the greatest percentage discount on additional registrations, a negotiable amount of floor space during lunch, two concurrent session slots, and the most number of invitations to the private dinner and networking event, will also get their logo included with their name on the Conference Badge Holder. The only other logo on this item will be the conference logo.

Sponsoring Conference Session
One of the benefits for the Gold, Platinum, and Event Partners is that they will also be listed as the “sponsor” of one of our events or tracks throughout the day. Although we are not providing a financial incentive to join the Partnership Program early, the real incentive is that those who do join the earliest will be able to select from the largest number of events or tracks to sponsor. For instance, the organizations that join us now will be able to select from the full list, provided below. As more partners join us, that list will get smaller.
Event or track sponsors will get their name listed next to the track or event on the printed and web schedules.
The full list of available events and tracks is:

  • Breakfast (Platinum and Event Partners only)
  • Lunch (Event Partner only)
  • Post-Event Social
  • Free Registration Competition – we will hold an essay competition to provide 3 entrants with free registration.
  • 3×15 Session – similar to TED talks, 3 speakers will present for 15 minutes each, with Q&A at the end, time permitting.
  • Ignite! Session – Consists of 8 presenters who get 5 minutes each to present 20 slides on their topic, each slide automatically timed to change after 15 seconds. This is usually an entertaining and high energy session.
  • Hybrid & Online Teaching & Learning Track
  • Immersive Technology Track
  • Leadership & Administration Track
  • Research Track
  • Speaker Ready Room

Track descriptions can be found at http://eld.montclair.edu/track-descriptions/

We are looking for organizations that may be interested in a sponsorship opportunity. For more details about the conference, click here to open in a new window.
The audience for this event will be anyone in the education community. Although we plan to market within a 90 mile radius, through our planned use of social media we could see attendees from greater distances. This event is being capped at 200.
We see three primary target groups with interest in this conference:

  • the MSU community
  • other higher education administrators, faculty, and technology support staff
  • K-12 educators, administrators, and support staff.

There are two sponsorship options

    • General Sponsorship – negotiated on a case-by-case basis, this option includes promotion via the web site, email, on-site displays, and select other collateral material.
    • Day-Of Event Sponsorship – There are three “day-of” events:
  • breakfast – Sponsored by NJEDge.net
  • lunch – Sponsored by Apple Education
  • post-event social – Sponsored by the MSU Network for Educational Renewal

Included would be promotion via the web site, email, on-site displays, and any other collateral material. Day-Of event sponsors will also have a display table available during the event they are sponsoring. If/when appropriate, a day-of event sponsor could also be provided with one (1) concurrent session slot to do a presentation on the use of their product in the classroom. This session would need to focus on the pedagogy and not a just a product demonstration.
If you would like more information or are interested in participating, please contact me by email at keltona at mail

Welcome to our permanent home! For some of you, this will be the only site you ever know. For a few, this is a big design change, but the biggest change is the URL. Effective today we’ve moved away form our temporary, mostly internal site, to our permanent URL – http://eld.montclair.edu.
This site is still being fine-tuned, designed, etc. If you have suggestions for the site design, please do email me directly at sorry dot afk at gmail dot com
You’ll notice design changes from time to time, more now since we’ve just gone live. But the content will always be in the same place, via the links above. There you can find the schedule, the speakers, and the session descriptions. You can also interact with the conference anytime you want, via this site. Commenting should be available on nearly every page. You are welcome to comments on presentations, presenters, or announcements. You’ll be able to do this before, during, and then after the event.
