LTDC Virtual Showcase April 2-3 CALL FOR PROPOSALS
Please consider submitting an education session proposal (https://uwex.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_eP9Str1A4qJz2hn). It’s a great way to present at a national conference without having to leave your campus or department. Presentations during concurrent sessions will be 45 minutes: 30 minutes for presentations and 15 minutes for questions and answers. All sessions will be given via a web conferencing tool. Sessions will be recorded and available for archive viewing. The LTDC highly encourages collaboration, use of appropriate and acceptable technologies, multiple institutions, and multiple discipline proposals.
Proposals will be selected and placed into one of the conferences tracks. The tracks are:
Digital Learning Environment – What have you learned about the DLE that you’d like to share? Discovered interesting features that everyone should know about?
Teaching & Learning – Have you used technology to prepare instructors to teach or to assist students with learning? What train-the-trainer opportunities have you created?
Technology and Other Resources – Have you created a wonderful set of resources for faculty and students? What new tool have you discovered that you want to share?
