E-Learning in Higher Education: Making Good on the Promises

Call for Content <http://conference.wcet.info/call/>

In the last few years e-learning has altered the face of higher education in
profound ways. New ways of thinking, of doing business, of teaching, and of
learning have moved from the horizon of far-off promises to the center stage
of common practice. This evolution has nurtured another awakening with
additional demands and desires-to set new policies, to establish new
practices, and to explore even further technology's potential and promise.

Submit a proposal today to share your expertise and experience with over 400
distance learning professionals on the innovative ways you are making good
on technology's bright promises. Over 150 presenters will be selected to
participate in the program.

Or if you are not interested in presenting but would like to make some
general suggestions-possible topics or speakers-for the conference program,
you can do that too!

The deadline to submit is February 15, 2007.

About the Program

The conference program consists of general sessions and more than 50
breakout sessions comprised of panels, roundtable discussions, workshops,
demos, and showcase sessions. See the Planning Committee's list of topics of
particular interest in these five subject area strands:

. Beyond the Institution
. Innovative Tools and Technologies
. Teaching and Learning
. Institutional Policies and Practices
. Student Services

How to Participate

Complete the online proposal form to submit

. Ideas or general suggestions--topics and/or speakers or innovations you
would like to see incorporated into the program
. Proposals for a specific conference session with a description of the
issue, policy, development, or project to be discussed, and who might be
involved in the presentation (The proposal form is short. It only requires a
title, 150 word description, and speaker information.)

In assembling the program, the Conference Planning Committee adheres to the
established criteria and session formats. It often combines proposals or
elements of similar proposals to create the strongest possible sessions for
the program.

Submit a Proposal or Idea

discounted WCET early-bird member rate.
