I spoke at this year’s 3Ts at Empire State College and really enjoyed it. Now the CFP is out for next year and here it is:
The 2014 conference 3Ts: At the Core of Teaching, Technology and Transliteracy, to be hosted at SUNY Geneseo on March 14, invites educational professionals from K-20 – librarians, instructors, instructional designers, IT professionals, administrators – to highlight their best teaching practices that encourage student engagement.
The conference planning committee seeks educational professionals that have excellent teaching models to share, based upon sound pedagogical principles. This year’s 3Ts conference will not follow the typical format; there will be no keynote speaker. Instead, presenters are encouraged to demonstrate their teaching methodologies to other professionals in a workshop style, allowing participants to engage in the instruction as if they were students.
As proposals undergo a peer-reviewed process, emphasis on the following are highly encouraged:
- Connecting theory to practice as discussed and modeled through your presentation delivery
- Collaborative projects/lesson plans that could include (but are not limited to) cross-disciplinary teaching, faculty/librarian partnerships, K-12/college experience
Proposals can include any meaningful integration of technology and teaching used to support the growing number of literacies students need for learning and succeeding in today’s information-rich academic and professional worlds. Possible tracks and technologies might include:
21st Century Literacies
Open Educational Technologies
Personal Learning Environments
Mobile Technology (Mobile apps, texting)
Classroom Technologies (Smartboards)
Each workshop session will last 90 minutes, reserving the final hour of the day for conference-wide reflection and discussion. Presenters and participants will have the opportunity to build upon lessons and ideas learned during the conference, creating a dialogue concerning effective and ineffective teaching methods.
To submit a proposal, please complete the submission form.
The deadline for proposals is December 20, 2013.
Presenters will be notified by January 17, 2014 if their proposal has been accepted.
Presenters will receive free registration for the conference and will have the opportunity to publish their work in the conference’s online proceedings.
