Emerging Learning Design
7th Annual Emerging Learning Design Conference - Call for Proposals

Emerging Learning Design is now accepting proposals for the
7th Annual Emerging Learning Design Conference (ELDc17)
June 1st & 2nd, 2017 at Montclair State University.

The theme for this year’s conference is
Where Teaching, Learning, and Technology Converge

When teaching, learning, and technology converge we find the potential for an inclusive learning experience that is both engaging and connected to curricular needs, without being dated. 21st century technologies provide a common space to explore and experience in an engaging and/or collaborative educational experience grounded in knowledge, strong pedagogy and learning theory.

Consider the times of convergence you’ve experienced – What made it effective and where were your challenges? What worked, and what needed refining? What were your ingenious, light-bulb moments and what were the lead balloons? Share your stories and your insight as we discuss where teaching, learning, and technology converge.

Submission are encouraged that tie to the theme, our mission, or, any of our ELDc17
Keyword http://eld.montclair.edu/2016/09/08/eldc17-keywords/

ELDc17 Submission Timeline

• Early Acceptance Proposal Submission Deadline - October 10th, 2016
Proposals submitted by this deadline, whether eventually accepted or not, will be included in a drawing for a free registration.
• Final Proposal Submission Deadline - November 1st, 2016 (if needed)

ELDc works with a Rolling Submission/Early Acceptance model. See http://eld.montclair.edu/rolling-submission-early-acceptance-model/ for details

The 6th Annual Emerging Learning Design Conference (ELD15) is accepting proposals for its 2016 conference, to be held June 2nd & 3rd, 2016, on the campus of Montclair State University.

PROPOSAL DEADLINE – NOVEMBER 9th, 2015.  See below for details.
All proposals received by the above deadline, whether eventually accepted or not,
will be included in a drawing for a complimentary ELD16 full registration.

For the Call for Proposals Submission Form – click https://utk.co1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_ddmxihPwjHqzyIZ
For the ELD16 Session Types – click http://eld.montclair.edu/eld-call-for-proposals/session-types/
For the Call for Proposals FAQ – click http://eld.montclair.edu/eld-call-for-proposals/eld-call-for-proposals-faq/
The theme for this year’s conference is Adopt & Adapt: Connecting Learning to Life


ELD uses a “rolling submission” model for proposals: every proposal will be reviewed and given feedback within 2 weeks of submission. Your submission will either be accepted or you’ll be provided feedback from our reviewers and offered an opportunity to revise and resubmit. We’ll continue this process of accepting or giving constructive feedback to proposals until all presentation slots are filled.

Submissions will still be accepted after November 9th, but they will be considered in the second round of proposals.  We will work with those who submitted by the deadline and then look toward later submissions to complete the program, should presentation slots still be available.

Why this model? Two main reasons: we seen that having revise-and-resubmit cycles make our conference’s presentations the best they can be for our attendees, and accepting excellent proposalsas they arrive is a great way to let our prospective audience know what to look forward to even before the whole program is finalized. In addition, this model is easier on our reviewers as we don’t get a rush of proposals on deadline day.

How do you submit a proposal? Go to http://eld.montclair.edu/eld-call-for-proposals/eld-call-for-proposals-faq/ and read some brief instructions on what we need in your submission, and then go to https://utk.co1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_ddmxihPwjHqzyIZ and supply that information. We’ll be in touch to confirm your submission was complete, and then let you know within a couple weeks the response from our reviewers.

Emerging Learning Design is looking for reviewers.

The Journal of Emerging Learning Design (ELDj) and the 7th Annual Emerging Learning Design Conference (ELDc17) are looking for reviews for articles and proposals, respectively.
The ELDj is currently collecting proceedings articles from the 6th Annual Emerging Learning Design conference, which took place on June 2 & 3. Review of submissions will begin in early August. The expected publication of the proceedings issue is January, 2017.

ELDj has also announced its first Special Issue. A call for submissions will be going out shortly but the theme of ELDj's first Special Issue will be Digital Humanities. Submissions for this Special Issue will be due in late fall and the publication date will be June 2nd, 2017.

ELDc17 is looking for reviewers for session proposals for our Annual Conference, which will take place on June 1st and 2nd, 2017. Details on theme and the call for submissions will be coming out later this summer. Review will begin in late fall, 2016.
The review process is simple and straight-forward and takes place entire online. The process is blind, so being a reviewer does not preclude submitting.

Reviewers are asked to consider a very limited number of submissions, in order to help reduce the work load and time commitment. The only thing we ask in return is that reviewers agree to respond within approximately 2 weeks.

Those interested in reviewing for the ELDj, ELDc17, or both, are asked to complete this short online form. http://bit.ly/eldvol

If you have any questions on the review process for either ELDj or ELDc17, please do not hesitate to contact me at keltona@mail.montclair.edu
