eLearning Strategies Symposium - Dec 7&8

CLRN and Computer Using Educators (CUE) have combined forces to create an annual online and blended learning conference in California. The eLearning Strategies Symposium debuts December 7th and 8th in Costa Mesa, California. Sponsored by K12, Inc, Education 2020, Accelerate, CETPA, and iNACOL, the symposium is designed to bring together K-12 educators, policymakers, and industry around eLearning’s progress, direction, curriculum, policy, teaching strategies, and professional development. Our inaugural symposium will take place at the Hilton Orange County/Costa Mesa, a free shuttle ride from the John Wayne Airport.

Early Bird Symposium registration is now extended until October 25th. Just $159, registration includes Friday and Saturday sessions and a keynote/lunch on Friday and a closing keynote/lunch on Saturday. Groups of three or more who are from the same school, district, or organization may register for $149. Registration increases to $215 beginning October 26th. directions for those paying by check or purchase order are provided on our site.

The symposium features five session strands: Big Picture, which includes administration, management, evaluation, research, and policies;
Content (curriculum and online course development, best practices, accessibility, and instructional design); Capacity Building (professional development);
Gear (tools, technologies, learning management systems, and application development); and Pedagogy (engaging students, teaching and learning pedagogies, blended learning models, learning communities, and assessment). A variety of scheduled sessions are now posted on the symposium web site.

Before the Friday, December 7th keynote, we'll be presenting two new awards: 1) Online Teacher of the Year; and 2) eLearning Advocate Award. Consider nominating someone for either of these awards. The deadline to submit is Tuesday, September 4th. More information is available at:
