Presentations (abstract only required)
(Presentation time: 15 minutes, 10 minutes discussion)
In these sessions presenters discuss and demonstrate how the conference themes apply to their own learning strategies, techniques, issues and solutions. This is an opportunity to inform attendees about the lessons learned and future plans from those who have designed, developed, and/or implemented. Abstracts of proposed presentations (200 words) were due for submission on or before 18th September, 2009. Abstracts will be included in the conference program and proceedings.
(Presentation time, 40-60 minutes, including discussion)
A panel, consisting of 3-5 people (including the chair), present their views on a common theme, issue, or question, and then discuss it with the audience. The panel must present an opportunity for the audience to hear well reasoned arguments and discussions about pertinent topics as seen from a variety of viewpoints. For example, a panel discussion may present arguments in support of, and in opposition to, an aspect of learning design. Papers (6-8 pages) can be submitted for a panel session and they will be double-blind reviewed. A one page proposal for the panel session and any papers were due for submission on or before 18th September, 2009. Both panel proposal and any paper will be included in the conference program and proceedings.
