Connected Learning: Opening Pathways,
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) for you to gather around with those that traveled with you--to discuss, share, and ideate on what you’re experiencing.
Join Us for the ELI Annual Meeting 2014 Tweet-Up
On Wednesday, January 22 at 1:00 p.m. (ET), we'll be hosting a Tweet-Up for anyone who is attending or thinking about attending the annual meeting. You'll have a chance to pose questions to the presenters, learn more about specific sessions, and meet others in the teaching and learning community who may also be attending.
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 fourth year of polling the teaching and learning community to identify the key issues and opportunities in teaching and learning. Check out the results for the past two years and vote on the coming year’s 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'll be bringing back badging at the ELI Annual Meeting. There will be more information to come on our expanding badging program soon with details on the types and categories in which meeting participants will be able to earn them.
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).
