ELI 2008 Annual Meeting—Call for Proposals
Connecting and Reflecting: Preparing Learners for Life 2.0
January 28–30, 2008 San Antonio, Texas
Join us at the ELI 2008 Annual Meeting for a challenging exploration of how we can prepare our students for work, life, and global citizenship in a world of constant change and information overload. At the meeting, "Connecting and Reflecting: Preparing Learners for Life 2.0," January 28–30 in San Antonio, Texas, we will consider:
Educational approaches that best prepare students for Life 2.0.
The unique capabilities IT offers to help our institutions ensure learners are successful.
The use of authentic learning environments to help students connect with information, faculty, each other, and professional communities.
Ways to demonstrate the value of reflection not only for learning but also for tackling real-world problems, fostering values, developing skills, and reaching professional goals.
Henry Jenkins, Belle Wheelan, and Robert Young will join us as keynote speakers, offering their unique, visionary perspectives on these issues. And, in the ELI tradition, the meeting will be a setting for interactive, hands-on learning and networking, with a variety of presentations, discussions, and workshops.
You are invited to be among those who give shape to this exciting discussion—submit a presentation proposal by September 17.
