Please consider submitting a proposal, which consists of a title and a 500 word abstract. See below for information on our revise/resubmit process.    Also, please share this with your colleagues

The 2015 Emerging Learning Design Conference (ELD15) is accepting proposals for its 5th annual conference, to be held May 29th 2015 on the campus of Montclair State University.

INITIAL PROPOSAL DEADLINE – NOVEMBER 21st, 2015. See below for details.
For the Call for Proposals Submission Form – click https://msusurveys.montclair.edu/index.php/771656/lang-en
For the ELD15 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 CONNECT, CONSTRUCT, CREATE: ENGAGING APPROACHES TO TEACHING AND LEARNING

ROLLING SUBMISSION / EARLY ACCEPTANCE MODEL
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 or we reach our INITIAL PROPOSAL DEADLINE of November 21st, 2014.

Submissions will still be accepted after November 21st, but they will be considered in the second round of proposals. We will work with those who submitted by the EARLY ACCEPTANCE DEADLINE and then look toward later submissions to complete the program, should presentation slots still be available.

Why this model? Two main reasons: we've seen that having revise-and-resubmit cycles make our conference’s presentations the best they can be for our attendees, and accepting excellent proposals as 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/ read some brief instructions on what we need in your submission, and then go to URL 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.

Accepted conference presentations have the potential to be included as proceedings in the Journal of Emerging Learning Design.
ELD15 Call for Proposals. Thank you for your interest in the 2015 Emerging Learning Design Conference. The success of the conference rests in part on the wonderful submissions made by people just like you. This submission form is set up so that you can return to it at any time FROM THE SAME ...

The 2015 Emerging Learning Design Organizing Committee will soon be announcing the Theme for the 2015 Emerging Learning Design Conference as well as the opening of our call for proposals! Look for details in the coming week.

As we continue planning for our May 29th, 2015 event, we are considering a wonderful range of speakers for our opening Keynote. The Organizing Committee, as we review candidates, wanted to reach out to our community and see if there are any keynote presenters YOU would like to see headline ELD15.

If you have any suggestions for keynote speakers, please email eld@mail.montclair.edu with the full name of your recommended speaker. If you also have any information on past presentations and/or work by that presenter, including a link to any biographical information, the Organization Committee would be most grateful.

Readers, Reviewers, and Organizing Committee Members

The Emerging Learning Design (ELD) Conference and the Journal of Emerging Learning Design (ELDJ) are looking for volunteers. Here is an opportunity for anyone to be an active part of the community as well as add an exceptional experience to your CV or resume.  We are looking for people at all levels of experience and expertise.

The Journal of Emerging Learning Design is looking for Reviewers.  The ELDJ currently publishes proceedings from the ELD Conference but expects to publish its first call-for-manuscripts edition either late 2015 or early 2016.  The ELDJ articles are either full manuscripts, of 2500-4500 words, or Brief or Trend articles at a maximum of 1000 words.  The ELDJ is currently looking for reviewers in all areas of expertise to review submissions and provide feedback to the Editor-in-Chief.  The review process is double-blind.  
If you are interested in being a Reviewer for the ELDJ, please email your interest to eldj@mail.montclair.edu

The Emerging Learning Design Conference is looking for members for the 2015 Organizing Committee as well as Readers to consider and provide input on prospective presentations for the 2015 Conference, schedule for May 29th, 2015.

ELD15 Organizing Committee members will be expected to attend a couple of short committee meetings (held online) as well as participate in the pre-event organizing process.  The primary focus on the committee work will be to determine a theme for the 2015 event as well as consider options for a keynote speaker.  The work of this committee is expected to be done fairly quickly, like within 4-6 weeks, and most exchange will try to be handled asynchronously, via email, etc..  The committee will remain constituted until the May 29th event.
f you are interested in being on the ELD15 Organizing Committee, please email your interest to eld@mail.montclair.edu

ELD is also looking for Readers to consider presentation proposals.  This process will not begin until mid-to-late September and will continue until December/January.  The submissions are fairly short (about 300 words) and providing input takes only a few minutes per submission.  In past years, reviewers have, on average, considered 3 or 4 submissions.  ELD is looking for reviewers in a variety of fields of interest and levels of expertise.  Those who are planning on submitting for ELD15 can also be a Reader.
If you are interested in being a Reader for the ELD15 submissions, please email your interest to eld@mail.montclair.edu

Please feel free to share this with colleagues who you believe may be interested.

Shhhh.  The #ELD14 Program Committee has not shut down the call for proposals page yet!  Due to the revise-and-resubmit process, the proposals already submitted are still being reviewed.  

That means there is still time to sneak in a proposals at http://eld.montclair.edu/eld14-call-for-proposals/.  No telling how long the form will remain online, so submit something today.

Please +1 and share

ELD15 is pleased to announce this year's theme along with its description.  We hope to see you on May 29th.  Registration is currently open and, in fact, the Early Bird Registration is already sold out.  The schedule is coming together and is being posted to http://eld.montclair.edu/eld15-schedule/ as its updated.

Connect, Construct, Create: Engaging Approaches to Teaching and Learning
Modern connected students are a challenge to teaching and learning. Students are immersed in a world of constant change, pervasive sharing and communication, and a rapid evolution of knowledge.  How can teaching and learning practices respond to these challenges?  How can we connect to students as learners, help them construct knowledge or artifacts, and foster their creativity as a way to both learn and demonstrate their learning?  Can we co-opt new technology, and its effect on students, to create new ways of teaching and learning that were impossible, inconceivable or not necessary for past learners?  These ideas, represented through the theme of the 2015 Emerging Learning Design conference, “Connect, Construct, Create: Engaging Approaches to Teaching and Learning”, serve as a guidepost for the diversity of the conference presentations.
