The Learning Revolution Online Conference
April & May, 2020
This online and participatory conference, being held over two months, presents a unique opportunity to showcase research, work, and/or thinking on teaching and learning in the 21st-Century.
The Call for Proposals Is Now Open.
Everyone is welcome to submit a presentation proposal. You may submit more than one proposal. Presentations must be non-commercial. Interest in commercial sponsorship or presentations should be directed firstname.lastname@example.org.
Proposals will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis starting March 23rd, 2020. Proposals will be evaluated based on being clear, organized, and pertinent to teaching and learning topics. It is our intention that all serious proposals be given the opportunity to be presented. If your proposal is accepted, you will be provided with the ability to schedule a presentation day and time that is convenient to your time zone and work schedule. Your scheduled session will be published in the calendar of events for the conference, and listed in emails of upcoming sessions. Early proposal submission and acceptance will give you the most flexibility for scheduling your presentation. The number of sessions each day will be limited, so you are encouraged to get your proposal in early. We will stop accepting proposals May 22nd.
Your presentation proposal, once submitted, will be listed on the Learning Revolution website, with the opportunity for members of this network to view, comment on, and/or "like" your presentation proposal. This will give you and the other members of this site the chance to share ideas and to make connections before, during, and after the conference. Additionally, it will allow us to gauge the popularity of your topic or approach.
All presentations will be free for participants to attend live and to watch as a recording during the conference. Your presentation recording will also be made available to you for your own personal or professional use. We may ask for a financial contribution from attendees to watch the conference archives after the event is over, depending on our ability to get sponsorship.
Sessions slots are 60 minutes long, and the suggested minimum presentation time is 20 minutes (less than this and attendees will be disappointed). Please do not exceed 55 minutes total presentation including Q+A time. All sessions will be held in the Zoom online meeting platform. Training information will be provided to you upon session acceptance. You can test your computer or mobile compatibility with Zoom at http://www.zooom.us/test. Presenters are responsible for being prepared to present in the conference platform. Zoom has good help documentation on the meeting functionality here.
