Innovation and Networking
For the 2014 ELI Annual Meeting, we’ve designed some innovative activities and networking opportunities to help you make the most of your meeting experience and to help you connect with others in the teaching and learning community.
Are you hearing lots of great ideas at the meeting and wish you could discuss them with your team right now? We’ve set aside some space (and time) on Monday and Tuesday for you to gather around with those that traveled with you--to discuss, share, and ideate on what you’re experiencing.
Find Your Peeps
In an effort to help connect participants from similar institutional types, we're setting aside some time (and space) where you can meet, share ideas, and network.
Wave your hands and control your computer, program a circuit board, and get a front row look at Google Glass: these are just some of the opportunities awaiting you at the Annual Meeting’s new learnshop sessions.
To expand the range of topics covered at the Annual Meeting, we’re featuring new InnovaTED sessions. As the name suggests, each InnovaTED session will have a pair of 15-minute presentations with 15 minutes of Q&A and discussion.
Thematic Poster Session “Neighborhoods”
This year, poster sessions will be grouped thematically, using the ELI content anchors. This way you’ll be able to make sure you can visit all the poster sessions that interest you. And don’t forget the digital poster gallery, our poster session in the cloud.
Vote on the Key Issues in Teaching and Learning
The ELI announces its third year of polling the teaching and learning community to identify the ELI content anchors for 2014. Your input to the key issues and opportunities in teaching and learning are needed. Check out the results from this past year and vote on 2014 anchors [link to come].
This year, you’ll see various sessions about breakthrough models, an innovation at the strategic level, seeking to redefine the institution’s concept of how it accomplishes its teaching and learning mission. We encourage you to engage in these conversations to help the teaching and learning community chart its way forward collaboratively.
- Incubating Strategic Innovation
- Breakthrough Models Academy Winners
- Next Generation Learning in Higher Education: What Did We Learn from the First Wave of Innovations?
- Proving Innovation Effective: How Three NGLC Projects Improved Outcomes for Students
This year, we're expanding our EDUCAUSE badging initiative at the ELI Annual Meeting. A badge is a visual representation of an accomplishment, such as a skill or knowledge competency, project completion, or a professional credential. You have the opportunity to earn various types of badges within three different categories. Learn more about these badges offered at this year's meeting.
Say No to the Snoozer, Complete a Session Evaluation!
We’ve all been in sessions that are real sleepers. In an effort to minimize those DIS-engaging experiences, we’ve taken steps to ensure that our speakers stay true to their advertised sessions and add engaging and interactive activities into their sessions. We’ll be looking for your feedback, so don’t forget to complete the session evaluations (do it from your mobile device right in the session).
