Call for Presentations is now open!

All proposals must be submitted by 11:59pm Eastern Standard Time on Friday, December 3, 2010. Full paper submission is not required; abstract submission only.

Access and Opportunity

Can blended learning increase access? Strategically developing programs/courses that integrate blended and online instruction has the potential to maximize access to high demand courses and degrees, create flexibility and time/cost efficiencies for students and impact time to degree. Presentations within this track would address those strategies institutions and/or faculty use to enhance access to a quality education. Submissions may be as concurrent sessions, great idea presentations, posters or workshops. Topics may include:

Program design with the goal to reduce the opportunity cost of an education for our undergraduate students by providing flexible degree options;
Pedagogically-driven blended courses that increase enrollment capacity in high demand general education courses;
Blended professional programs for working adults;
Blended course and blended program offerings that allow students to work and attend school to minimize the risk students will need to drop-out or stop-out;
Institutional strategies to teach more students within the parameters of existing resources by leveraging physical space usage and service operations;
Programs to prepare students to learn online;
Online advising programs providing flexibility for students;
Communication and marketing plans for student/faculty information;
Examples of blended learning as a recruiting opportunity;
Sustainability financial models; and
Scalability strategies.

Guidelines for Proposal Submissions

Corporate and Campus Solutions Track PresentationsVisit the Corporate Participation page.
Proposals must be submitted by September 27.
Please read these guidelines and consult this Proposal Preparation Checklist before starting the proposal submission process.

What makes the EDUCAUSE regional conferences so strong and so valuable is that attendees share experiences, ideas, and information with colleagues, and we all learn from each other. We urge you to share what you have learned and make the conference even stronger by submitting a proposal for a presentation. Consider organizing a panel discussion or submitting a joint presentation with a colleague.

All institutions of higher education and associations interested in higher education IT, are encouraged to submit proposals on key topics suggested in the track area descriptions. As you think about the best format to propose, remember all of these sessions should be designed for both presenters and attendees to learn from interactive exchange. Former applicants and past reviewers emphasize the value of clearly articulating your presentation's intended outcomes and sharing specific examples of how you will build interactivity during your session. For more advice on crafting your proposal for maximum impact please visit the Tips for Successful Proposals page.

Program Tracks and Key Topics
The program committee has outlined a series of tracks and key topics they believe will make an interesting and useful program.

Session Formats
The program committee encourages you to consider a presentation format that will engage your colleagues in discussion and learning beyond a simple dissemination of information. Sessions may follow one of these formats, or you may suggest an alternative format:

Interactive presentations (45 minutes) are opportunities to share topics of community interest through an innovative, thought-provoking format that encourages attendee participation. Outcomes may include creation of a best practices document, checklists for needed developmental work, or establishment of an ongoing development group.

Panel discussions (45 minutes) consist of multiple speakers, each offering a perspective on an issue or set of issues, with ample time for questions and answers. Examples include provider/customer viewpoints on emerging systems or technologies, point/counterpoint debates on controversial legal or policy issues, and insights gleaned from multi-campus or multi-institutional cooperative initiatives. Panels may invite the audience into the discussion using polls and Q&A.

Campus perspectives presentations (45 minutes) share the experiences of several (two to four) institutions dealing with the same challenge on their respective campuses, with ample time for questions and answers.

Poster sessions (60 minutes) offer the opportunity to share campus experiences through informal, interactive, brief presentations focused on effective practices, research findings, or technical solutions. This format, with multiple sessions in the same room, gives attendees and presenters the opportunity to share and examine problems, issues, and solutions in a more casual, direct, one-on-one environment. These sessions are a great way to learn from interactions with attendees who stop by.

Selection Process
Proposals will be reviewed by the Midwest Regional Conference Program Committee and selected Adjunct Proposal Reviewers using the following criteria:

Quality of Topic: Is the topic of importance, relevance, value, and/or interest to the targeted area of information resources in higher education?

Proposed Topic Coverage: Does the proposal cover the topic adequately?

Speaker Knowledge: Does the speaker, or speakers, appear to have sufficient knowledge, expertise, and authority to address this topic?

Speaker Presentation Style: Has the speaker provided sufficient evidence of his/her ability to effectively present on the topic?

Overall Rating: What is your evaluation of this proposal overall?

Proposals will be selected to provide a program that offers a comprehensive, non-commercial, objective, and diverse treatment of issues related to the conference theme.
Applicants will be notified about proposal status in November. Note that you may be invited to present in formats other than those noted in the proposal submission form. Presentations will take place March 14–16 at the EDUCAUSE Midwest Regional Conference in Chicago, Illinois.

Poster sessions will take place in the afternoon on March 15.

2011 UPCEA Career and Economic Development - January 12-14, 2011 Clearwater Beach, FL

Ecological systems are defined by the interrelationships among organisms and their environment. Economic development is driven by innovation. Like an ecological system, economic development depends upon the interrelationships among education and training providers, employers, and government policymakers. The job training funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), as well as changes to Pell Grant funding and the unemployment insurance system, were designed to bring postsecondary education within the reach of increased numbers of working Americans.

Yet these changes represent but a first step in addressing the nation’s need to raise the educational attainment level of its workforce. To get ahead, access to ongoing postsecondary education and training is vital over the career span. Yet the
current system is skewed toward short-term training created to get the unemployed into the jobs and gives short shrift to building the skill levels of workers through investments in ongoing education and training.

The American postsecondary education system divides into two silos: one provides programs that serve the needs of traditional-age, full-time students; and another supplies a wide array of convenient, albeit stand-alone, education and training modules which offer neither a recognized credential nor a pathway to a career. In a knowledge-based economy, the successful businesses will be those most dependent on quality human capital to spur innovation. Professional and continuing education units contribute to economic development by providing customized corporate training, offering certificate and master’s degree programs for emerging professional fields, facilitating technology transfer, and supporting innovation incubators for start-ups and small businesses.

UPCEA’s 17th Annual Career and Economic Development Forum (formerly Workforce Development Forum) will bring together leaders from the business, government, non-profit, and academic sectors to discuss workforce trends, public policy directions, partnership models, and education programs. Participants at this Forum will explore the role played by college and university professional and continuing education organizations in responding to the changing nature of workforce development, education, and training. The Program Planning Committee is soliciting concurrent session presentations related to three general themes: Responding to Market Forces, Certification and Credentialing, and Effective Strategies.

Guidelines for Concurrent Session Proposals
• Provide a session title and description (in 500 words or less) of your proposal.
• Provide the name, organizational affiliation, and contact information (email and mailing address) of all presenters in the proposed session, and a primary contact person. In addition, please provide a maximum 100-word bio for each presenter.
• Provide an abstract (maximum of 75 words) of your proposal for use in the Forum program.
• List any other presentation needs.
• E-mail the proposal by September 24, 2010, to UPCEA Career and Economic Development Forum, Barbara Kessler,
