Attending 7th Annual International Symposium on Emerging Technologies for Online Learning

I'm attending #et4online

For the next 3 days (April 9-11), I’m attending the 7th Annual International Symposium on Emerging Technologies for Online Learning, a joint symposium of the Sloan Consortium and MERLOT. This conference is devoted to the emerging and innovative uses of technology designed to improve teaching and learning online. The conference focuses on the technologies that drive online learning effectiveness, highlighting research, applications and best practices of important emerging technological tools.

Not only will there be fantastic keynote and plenary sessions, workshops, featured and information sessions, but also an unconference where participants set the agenda, discuss, and share just-in-time! I look forward to participating and on-site as well as the backchannel conversation on Twitter, hashtags #et4online and #unet4online. The Launch Pad is one signature element of this conference, showcasing online education startups who are helping shape tomorrow’s online learning spaces.

Whether you are attending in person, virtually, or simply wish to follow the backchannel, I encourage you to take advantage of this great opportunity to learn more about cutting-edge uses of emerging technologies for online teaching and learning. Follow @SloanConsortium, @MERLOTorg, and @et4online on Twitter as well as hashtags #et4online and #unet4online. Also, follow Sloan Consortium on Instagram @SloanConsortium
