Greetings everyone!
                        
The 2nd annual LMS unconference (a NERCOMP SIG*, an unSIG) will be held on January 25, 2013 at the Southbridge Hotel and Conference Center in Southbridge, MA. This is a unique opportunity to approach LMS issues in a platform neutral environment, sharing and learning strategies for system assessment, implementation, training, design and support in all relevant areas of the campus. 

The unSIG format empowers participants to craft the conference program and provides opportunities for them to become the presenters. Participants, rather than event organizers, determine the topics covered in session tracks. This means that the agenda is not predetermined months in advance, but instead will include the issues and concerns that are most significant to attendees on the day of the conference.

Along with standard LMS issues such as adoption, implementation and training, this year we expect discussions to include a variety of session topics based on current news, trends and development in the LMS market, including but not limited to:
  1. Alternative Credentialing
  2. MOOCs
  3. Analytics
  4. Expanding Online Learning at your institution
  5. The changing LMS landscape and new cross platform tools
  6. Change Management
                        
Attendees have the opportunity to participate in pre-conference discussion online and submit topics for sessions on the LMSunSIG website (http://edtechgroup.org/lmsunconference/). Additional proposals will be shared at the event, and session topics will be voted into the day’s agenda by you, the participants. Then, attendees will spend the remainder of the day discussing, debating and dissecting all things LMS.

Regular *NERCOMP SIG registration fees apply for members and non-members.

This sounds very interesting, wish I could make it! I think we're going to see some very interesting things happen in the LMS space now that there is more happening at a larger and louder scale.

I'll let some of my former colleagues at Umass Amherst know about it.
