You can find lots of information about November’s ICDE World Conference on Online Learning in the latest edition of the conference newsletter. Read more about our unique walking tours ending with “pedagogy in the pub” and the significance of the conference theme as we celebrate Samhain and the change of seasons. The newsletter also shares a set of principles for conference participation, which serve as a guide to delegates in order to create a really welcoming, courteous and respectful professional learning atmosphere.
If you are waiting for more information on the day/time of your presentation at the World Conference, then the newsletter provides a progress report and shares more details on the presenter guidelines and this Friday’s webinar for authors and contributors. The newsletter also profiles another plenary speaker who will focus on strength in diversity and transformative leadership for changing times. More specifically, in her keynote Professor Belinda Tynan will address the major contribution that women can make in leadership roles and this important theme then continues over a panel discussion.
The newsletter also reports a number of linked events, with the formal launch of the IUA-led project on Enhancing Digital Capacity in Teaching and Learning, and a follow up ePortfolio workshop organised by Eportfolio Ireland on Monday 11th November. The ICDE World Conference is supported by over 30 partner organisation from around the globe and this week’s newsletter acknowledges the great local support from a number of Irish professional bodies, including the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education as a valued Bronze Sponsor.
