Proposals will be accepted until February 13, 2015.
The conference will showcase many aspects of teaching and learning with the D2L Learning Management System and will also feature sessions that provide information about best practices for course design based on the Quality Matters standards. This event is open to all Minnesota State Colleges and Universities, faculty and staff and K-12 educators. Users from other states are also welcome.
Session proposals are being sought from statewide MnSCU and K-12 faculty and teachers, as well as staff and administrators, for sessions which fall into one of these four tracks:
- Teaching and Learning
- Support and Training
- Program Management/Collaboration Planning
- Vendor (tools that integrate with D2L)
How Will Proposals Be Reviewed?
Through a peer review process, conference committee members will strive to schedule sessions in a variety of formats representing the latest innovations and best practices in the field of “digital” education. Our peer reviewers will place a high value on clear goals and objectives with significance placed on sessions that address the suggested conference topics. Preference will be given to sessions incorporating aspects of D2L and/or Quality Matters or quality topics. In order for a session to be designated as a session that includes Quality Matters related content, presenters must have completed some type of formal Quality Matters training.
