For Today

A blog post is due on any reading, tool, or other material from our website.  Peruse and decide what interests you (there are links to journals, books, websites, and other resources).

We’ll have a Zotero workshop and then share some of our finds, tools from last week’s posts, and discuss the final project.

I need to conclude class a few minutes early today (and rush out the door), so please excuse my haste as it nears 5.

See you later,  JT

Where Teaching, Learning, and Technology Converge: Emerging Learning Design 7th

Emerging Learning Design 7th Annual Emerging Learning Design Conference –

Call for Proposals Emerging Learning Design is now accepting proposals for the 7th Annual Emerging Learning Design Conference (ELDc17) June 1st & 2nd, 2017 at Montclair State University. 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 Keyword http://eld.montclair.edu/2016/09/08/eldc17-keywords/ ELDc17 Submission Timeline • Early Acceptance Proposal Submission Deadline – October 10th, 2016 Proposals submitted by this deadline, whether eventually accepted or not, will be included in a drawing for a free registration. • Final Proposal Submission Deadline – November 1st, 2016 (if needed) ELDc works with a Rolling Submission/Early Acceptance model.
