Call for Proposals: Minnesota Connection

Minnesota Connection > Call For Proposals

Proposals are being sought from higher education and K-12 faculty and teachers, as well as staff and administrators. This year we are especially looking sessions that “push the envelope” a bit more by focusing on emerging technologies, recent innovations or pilot projects, your creative use of D2L Brightspace or other instructional technologies, or recently redesigned faculty development efforts

Additionally, if you’ve been using one of the newer D2L Brightspace tools such as YouSeeU, data analytics, or ePortfolio, please consider creating a session to share what you have done or how you have used the tool and what you have learned.

Consider presentations that address these ideas and topics:

  • Trends in Instructional/Educational Technology
  • Accessibility & Universal Design
  • New Modalities in Teaching (e.g., competency-based education, personalized learning, flexible pathways, micro-credentialing) and the technologies used to support them
  • Inspiring Innovation
  • Games, Gamification, and the Virtual Classroom
  • Course Design and Quality
  • Open Educational Resources
  • Professional Development for Educators
  • Faculty and Student Support
  • The Use of D2L’s ePortfolio in a Course or Program
  • Learning Measurement & Data Analytics
  • Effective Practices for D2L Administrators
  • Mobile Applications, Devices, and Support
  • Privacy and Cybersecurity

Session Formats

This year’s sessions will be offered in the following formats:

  • 50 minute Regular Sessions
  • 50 minute Roundtable Discussions
  • 25 minute Lightning Rounds
  • 30 minute Poster Sessions

Additional Notes

  • Tips for Writing an Effective Abstract >
  • Individual or group presentations (up to three speakers in total) are both accepted. If your proposal is accepted, you are responsible for relaying all communication to your co-presenters.
  • All presentations should relate to online or blended learning, but can include scholarship, pedagogy, and leadership topics. This conference seeks to guide attendees in more skillful and deeper use of the available tools within Brightspace, but also in addressing important pedagogical topics.
  • There is no limit to the number of proposals an individual may submit.

Proposals will be accepted for the D2L Connection: Minnesota Edition until February 1, 2019.   Submit your proposal today to be a part of the Minnesota conference!
