Click Graphic to Register

Please save the date of Monday, December 16, 2013 for our first Northeast E-Learning Consortium Un-Conference. The event will be hosted by the University of the Sciences, Philadelphia, PA. The event will also include the first Philadelphia stop on Blackboard's "Never Stop Learning Tour"

In a departure from a conventionally structured program of events, the Consortium has decided on a modified unconference format, a loosely structured conference emphasizing the informal exchange of information and ideas between participants.

While there will be some traditional presentations from our sponsors, and other select topics, the bulk of the agenda elearning topics are created by the attendees when they register for the meeting. Attendees with a high level of expertise or knowledge in the topic who want to initiate a discussion on a topic can claim a session slot to lead. 

Our unconference sessions will feature open discussions rather than having a single speaker at the front of the room giving a talk. Alternately, session attendees will be given a few minutes to present in a “panel” format.

Blackboard's "Never Stop Learning" Tour in Philly will be an "Un-Conference"
