EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI)

The EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) is a community of higher education institutions and organizations committed to advancing learning through IT innovation. The ELI Annual Meeting provides an opportunity for those interested in learning, learning principles and practices, and learning technologies to explore, network, and share. Find more information about the ELI mission and philosophy here.

Transforming Higher Education: Exploring New Learning Horizons

The horizon of teaching and learning today is characterized by ever greater degrees of agency for learners, instructors, instructional designers, and technologists. From active learning classrooms to integrated student advising and from rapidly improving XR technologies to learning analytics, we all have more options for invention, innovation, and new designs in support of our teaching and learning mission. Join your colleagues as we collectively explore this ever-changing landscape of the new possibilities for learning, addressing these and many other questions:

  • What new kinds of leadership are required for this new teaching and learning landscape?
  • What are the best methods and techniques that promote innovation and creative thinking to support student learning?
  • What new educational technologies seem most promising?
  • What role should data and analytics play, and what are the trade-offs between analytics and privacy?
  • How can we best determine the efficacy of our learning innovations and technologies?
  • What learning spaces and environments best promote active learning?

2019 Annual Meeting Tracks

The strategic use of information technology has the ability to transform teaching and learning, helping institutions realize EDUCAUSE’s mission to advance higher education through the use of information technology. The following tracks include the best ways to navigate the learning horizons. Proposals that clearly describe innovative and creative work will receive the highest priority in the selection process.

  1. Accessibility and Universal Design for Learning (UDL)
  2. Analytics: Privacy, Learning Data, Student Advising, and Interventions
  3. Digital and Information Literacy
  4. Faculty Development and Engagement
  5. Innovation in Instructional Design and Course Models
  6. Leadership and Academic Transformation
  7. Learning Efficacy: Impact Evaluation, Learning Research and Science
  8. Learning Environments and Spaces
  9. Learning Horizons: Emerging Technology, Ground-Breaking Practices, and Educational Futures
  10. Open Education
  11. Student Success
  12. Other

Learning Objectives and Participant Engagement Strategies

The ELI proposal reviewers will closely examine and rate each proposed session’s learning objectives, which should clearly describe what participants will know or be able to do as a result of participating in the session. A successful proposal must also include the specific and creative ways in which the presenter(s) will engage with participants through active learning strategies. ELI encourages innovative and participatory session design, the creative use of technology, and active engagement by all participants.

Session Types

All ELI Annual Meeting sessions will be conducted face-to-face in the meeting venue.

Preconference Workshops

Preconference workshops will be held Tuesday, February 19, from 8:00 to 11:00 a.m. (PT), face-to-face, in Anaheim, California. Up to two presenters from each seminar will be provided with a full complimentary registration to the annual meeting. Preconference workshops are intended to provide attendees with significant assistance in addressing their needs and opportunities to navigate the learning horizons. If you have questions, please contact the speaker liaison.

Present and Engage Sessions

Please note that your presentation session proposal will be carefully evaluated and may be accepted for any of the following formats below, depending on the scope of content and engagement strategies proposed. If you have questions, please contact the speaker liaison.

  • Interactive Presentation: Interactive presentations are opportunities to present in detail on a project, idea, or experience while enabling audience participation. These sessions require continuous engagement tactics, interspersed activity tactics, or intensive Q&A tactics. They are scheduled for 45 minutes, and at least 15 minutes of this time should be interactive.
  • Short Presentation Pairs: Presentation pairings include two 15-minute presentations (by different presenters) followed by a 15-minute question/discussion period, for a total of 45 minutes. This is a great way to organize closely related content with two unique perspectives. When you submit your proposal, you can suggest that your solo presentation be paired by the ELI Annual Meeting Program Team or you can coordinate with colleagues to suggest your paired team. Final pairings will be determined by ELI, based on proposal content. These highly visible sessions highlight pioneering practices by giving institutions a spotlighted venue with condensed presentation time. Please note these are not poster sessions.
  • Hands-On Workshop: Workshops are 45-minute sessions where participants experience technology or pedagogical practices firsthand. Note that these are not presentation sessions—they are activity sessions. Session descriptions should clearly indicate how presenters will guide a hands-on, tutorial-like experience using applications and resources. Participants are asked to bring a mobile device (e.g., smartphone, tablet, laptop) to the session in order to fully participate and to experience an emerging, innovative technology or practice. Hands-on workshops, by virtue of their robust interactive learning design, will have priority consideration for the active learning space (designed by Steelcase Education). Presenters are responsible for providing any additional technologies needed to ensure an engaging hands-on experience.

Discuss and Connect Sessions

  • Discussion Circle: This is ELI’s version of an unstructured, topic-driven discussion, somewhat like a conceptual jam session. The Discussion Circle is a way to engage with colleagues seeking common solutions to today’s greatest challenges on the learning horizon. Eschewing any presentation, discussion circle hosts facilitate conversations in small, intimate settings, allowing participants to take a deep dive into a pressing issue the community is tackling and for which the resolution is not obvious. These 45-minute sessions are highly interactive and provide a unique learning and bonding opportunity.
  • Posters: Posters give participants and presenters the opportunity to share and examine problems, issues, and solutions in a more casual, personal environment through informal, interactive, brief presentations focused on effective practices, research findings, or technical solutions. The standard setup for a poster includes a 6′-foot skirted table, wireless internet access, and boards. Posters are allocated 45 minutes of action, with ample time for setup and breakdown.

Please take a moment to view this 5-minute video on how to write an effective proposal. Following the tips in this video will increase the likelihood of your proposal being selected.

Speak Up – Advocating for You and Your Library (due June 29, 2018)

What do you think of when you hear the word “advocacy”? Do you immediately think of stumping on Capitol Hill and meeting with local government officials? “Advocacy” is much more than politics. Every day, librarians and staff find themselves in situations where they must advocate for resources, money, and services for their libraries, in addition to advocating for themselves and their career as professionals.

 

Join us on September 12 for an Amigos Library Services online conference, Speak Up – Advocating for You and Your Library, where we will explore advocacy beyond politics.

 

Amigos Library Services is now accepting presentation proposals for this conference! Suggested topic areas include but are not limited to:

  • Creating the right message about your library
  • Identifying and crafting your communication strategy
  • Building public awareness
  • Responding to a budget crisis
  • Self-advocacy-asking for and seeking what you need
  • Developing relationships with your administrators and leadership
  • Building your network of supporters and advocates in the community
  • Dealing effectively with the media
  • Working in collaboration with other organizations or departments

 

If you can speak to one of these topics, or have another idea in mind, please submit your proposal by June 29, 2018. Don’t worry if you’ve never presented online. It’s easy, and we are happy to train you and will provide technical support during your presentation.

 

 

Digitorium 2018

Event:                  Digitorium Digital Humanities Conference

Where:                 University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, AL

for more information go to https://apps.lib.ua.edu/blogs/digitorium/cfp/

We are delighted to invite proposals for Digitorium 2018, a large-scale, international Digital Humanities conference to be held for the fourth time at The University of Alabama, October 4 – 6, 2018.

We seek proposals on Digital Humanities work from researchers, practitioners, and graduate students which showcase innovative ways in which digital methods have brought scholarship and scholarly communities to life, whether locally or globally. We especially welcome proposals which discuss the use of digital methods and their novel results for research, pedagogy, and public scholarship. The conference will host research presentations, roundtables, and workshops throughout the event for participants to gain new digital skills, and to share their expertise in using particular tools. The workshops allow participants to see the scholarly results of using a given digital tool (e.g., OpenRefine, oXygen, Story Maps, QGIS, Paper Machines, Visual Eyes, etc.), and then to learn how to use it themselves. For these sessions, we invite proposals from scholars interested in giving an initial 10-20 minute paper about their research project followed by leading a 30-40 minute hands-on workshop in which they will teach other participants how to use one of the digital tools deployed for the research presentation.

Deadline for submitting abstracts is July 27, 2018.

We have two key “pathways” for which participants can submit abstracts:

  • Digital Methods: presentations on exciting new applications of digital methods, whether to bring an under-served subject to public attention, or to break new ground in established fields.
  • Digital Pedagogy and Public Scholarship: presentations on the use of digital methods in innovative teaching approaches, and for public outreach by universities, libraries, museums, and other institutions who are engaging communities via digital scholarship.

Proposals:

We seek proposals for the following types of presentation for the conference:

  • 20-minute papers.
  • 5-minute lightning talks.
  • Workshops: a 10-20 minute paper followed by leading a hands-on workshop using the tool employed for your research (see above for details).
  • Posters.
  • Digital exhibits
    • Bring your digital exhibit to the conference and present it as you would a poster.
  • Workshops to share techniques which you have found useful.
  • Roundtables.
  • Experiential presentations
    • 20-30 minute workshop-style presentations walking your audience through a digital method which you have used for specific scholarly outcomes.
  • Panels of three or four 20-minute papers or two experiential presentations.
  • Panels comprised of a whole project team.

All proposals should be made via the Submissions page on the conference website.

Deadline for submitting abstracts is July 27, 2018.

For more information about the conference, including our plenary speakers, the venue, and the departments generously offering their support for this event, please explore our website. If you have any questions please feel free to contact Thomas C. Wilson, Associate Dean for Research & Technology at tcwilson@ua.edu.
