Submission Deadline: December 5, 2008USDLA is pleased to announce the Call for Proposals for the 2009 Annual Conference. Proposals are now being accepted based on the 2009 theme, "Distance Learning: Becoming faster, stronger, and better." We invite your proposals and participation for this exciting event. There are several ways to participate.
• Concurrent information sessions provide an opportunity for you to give an interactive presentation in one or more of the conference topic areas. Conference attendees expect sessions to provide practical advice and the sharing of experiences. Sessions should be lively and interactive, not a lecture format. Co-presenters are encouraged.
• Poster sessions allow presenters to prepare a standing table-top poster that describes a project, process, or other activity. During the poster session times, conference participants will visit with poster session presenters for information discussion.
• Small panels are also encouraged, particularly those that address a conference topic from several points of view. We recommend that proposals be specific about what will make your presentation valuable to attendees. Please do not plan to make a sales presentation. Your proposal should be focused on innovative issues and working solutions and should address the conference theme as much as possible.
All presenters are expected to register for the full conference. Presenters will be given the Early Bird registration rate after they are notified of a successful proposal.
