Event Description

The 10th Annual Sloan Consortium Blended Learning Conference and Workshop will be held on July 8-9, 2013 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, at the Hyatt Regency Milwaukee. This year’s conference theme, Trend to Blend: Lessons from the Field reflects a renewed interest in blended learning while emphasizing the importance of research and proven effective practices of the past decade in guiding our future.  

Although the field of blended learning is not new, we are witnessing a revival in interest around blended learning for a greater array of educational institutions working to improve the overall state of education in our society.  Lessons are not only learned from our experiences in practice, but they are also learned from our research over the past decade, and they assist us in making decisions when it comes to strategy, implementation, pedagogy, research, and support.  These lessons guide our institutions.

Our future is blended learning.  There are many paths we can take to meet our goal in ensuring quality for students, and we need to explore the contingencies to make sound decisions in determining our roadmap.  The changing landscape is evident in new terminology (flipped classrooms), new growth in sectors (k-12), and new financial support for blended programs (NGLC).  This transformation reveals new ideas about blended learning.  As a community, we look to research and evidence to assist us in answering these questions and to drive us into the blended learning future.

Now, with a decade of experience and knowledge, we look for opportunities to map our future by continuing to innovate and collaborate at the 10th Annual Sloan Consortium Blended Learning Conference and Workshop providing an unforgettable experience.  

About the Conference:

How do we improve student learning? How do we support our students and provide them access to a quality education? How do we develop new opportunities and overcome our limited resources?  

Institutions of higher education around the world are using blended learning to enhance student learning, facilitate student access, meet instructional and institutional goals, and find solutions for diminishing resources. Faculty members and instructional designers use the blended mode to enrich teaching and learning. Administrators strategically incorporate blended programs in order to help fulfill their institutions' missions and goals. Students draw on blended offerings to take advantage of the flexibility and to improve their time to degree.

Join your colleagues at the 10th Annual Sloan Consortium Blended Learning Conference and Workshop as we problem-solve, exchange ideas, and explore effective strategies about blended learning. The conference provides the opportunity for instructors and faculty members, instructional designers, student advisors, administrative leaders, and researchers to share best practices, strategic considerations, models of practice, and challenges revealed through our experiences in practice and research.

Attendees will be able to attend two days of sessions including interactive workshops, information sessions, poster sessions, a plenary session, and a keynote address, and unconference sessions, all focused on instructional practices, academic planning, faculty development, and assessment/evaluation.

The Sloan Consortium Blended Learning Conference and Workshop provides the opportunity for attendees to engage with one another throughout this conference sharing information and ideas. As an attendee, you and your institution will benefit from this highly interactive conference as well as become a part of the Sloan-C blended community through membership opportunities, publications, online courses, and more.

Learning Management System

My school system will soon discuss which learning management system would be best to use with our students. I say, "Why choose one?" Web/cloud based system rarely require 3rd party assistance, i.e., system IT people.  The more experience students get with using a variety of LMS, the better. Suggestions?See More
