Proposals are being accepted for the Minnesota Desire2Learn Ignite Regional User Conference 2015, to be held Friday, April 24, 2015 from 8a.m. – 4p.m. (Note: This is a regional conference which is different from the annual Fusion.) Sponsored by Desire2Learn and held at the Minneapolis Marriott Southwest, 5801 Opus Parkway, Minneapolis, MN.
This user conference is open to all Minnesota State Colleges and Universities faculty and staff and K-12 educators. Users from other states are also welcome. The conference will showcase many aspects of teaching and learning with technology, but especially focuses on Desire2Learn (D2L), a learning management system and The Quality Matters Program™, a peer review process that supports the design of quality online and blended courses.
Session proposals are being sought from statewide MnSCU and Minnesota K-12 faculty and teachers, as well as staff and administrators, for sessions which fall into one of these four tracks: Program Management/Collaboration Planning, Teaching & Learning, Support & Training, and Vendor Tool Integration. Sessions that focus on D2L and/or the Quality Matters Standards and Process will be given preference.
Proposals will be accepted until Jan. 30, 2015.
