Meetings | General Education and Assessment 2014

General Education and Assessment:
Disruptions, Innovations, and Opportunities

Network for Academic Renewal Conference
February 27 — March 1, 2014
Portland, Oregon

Conference Overview
General Education and Assessment: Disruptions, Innovations, and Opportunities will examine how emerging disruptions in higher education are leading to positive opportunities for innovation in general education and assessment to improve the undergraduate experience for all students.

Questions to be addressed include: How can the increasing movement toward online learning lead to more effective uses of technology for all students with special emphasis on high-quality multi-modal learning for post-traditional and underserved students? How can higher education move from monitoring seat time as a measure of achievement to assessing outcomes as measures of success, particularly as new modes of learning are taking students out of seats and into communities?  How are institutions promoting collaboration across campus among faculty and other educational professionals to align quality improvement efforts, especially as campuses have grown more reliant on adjunct faculty and less reliant upon additional resources?

Call for Papers  |  The Conference  |  e-Learning & Innovative Pedagogies

The Seventh International Conference on
e-Learning and Innovative Pedagogies

Pacific University Forest Grove, Oregon, USA (3-4 October 2014)

The e-Learning Conference investigates the uses of technologies in learning, including devices with sophisticated computing and networking capacities which are now pervasively part of our everyday lives. The Conference explores the possibilities of new forms of technology-mediated learning devices not only in the classroom, but in a wider range of places and times than was conventionally the case for education. These are the key themes and scope and concerns of the conference and its companion journal.

We are inviting proposals for paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters/exhibits, or colloquia (See Proposal Types). Proposal ideas that extend beyond these thematic areas will also be considered. For more information about the ideas and themes underlying this community, see Our Focus.
We also offer participation options for those individuals who cannot attend the conference. Authors who wish to submit an article for potential publication in Ubiquitous Learning: An International Journal may submit a Proposal for Article Submission, while all members of the knowledge community with an accepted proposal may submit an online presentation to the knowledge community YouTube channel.

"The International Forum for Researchers, Developers, and Practitioners to Learn about the Best Practices/Technology in Education, Government, Healthcare, and Business"

Promoting Learning with Better Student Interaction in Class and Online Teaching Professor

Every instructor has witnessed the moment when the in-class dialogue seems to take off on its own, when students contribute spontaneously and organically, when the conversation naturally leads from one idea to the next.It’s magical when it happens.
That kind of classroom environment is not the stuff of myths or legends. Teachers can actually create climates that motivate participation, encourage thinking and learning, and develop interaction skills.
Research supports what most instructors already believe: interaction among students and instructors promotes engagement and learning. Most teachers want to foster participation in their classrooms. The challenge is how to do it.
But not just any conversation will do. Instructors also have to ensure that the interactions enhance engagement and elevate instruction.
The good news is that it is entirely possible. The better news is that access to research-backed activities, policies, and strategies as well as best practices requires no magic at all.
Everything you need to unlock inspired classroom interaction is available in Promoting Learning with Better Student Interaction in Class and Online, a new Teaching Professor workshop.
