The 12th Annual Online Learning Consortium Blended Learning Conference and Workshop (BLEND15) theme is “Blended Learning: Leading Education’s Digital Future.”

This year’s conference theme signifies the tremendous promise of blended teaching and learning—in all of its diverse forms—to assume a more prominent role in shaping the higher education landscape.

How do we improve student learning? How do we support our students and provide them access to a quality education? How do we develop new opportunities and overcome our limited resources?

Institutions of higher education around the world are using blended learning to enhance student learning, facilitate student access, meet instructional and institutional goals, and find solutions for diminishing resources. Faculty members and instructional designers use the blended mode to enrich teaching and learning. Administrators strategically incorporate blended programs in order to help fulfill their institutions' missions and goals. Students draw on blended offerings to take advantage of the flexibility and to improve their time to degree.

Join your colleagues at the 12th Annual Online Learning Consortium Blended Learning Conference and Workshop (BLEND15) as we problem-solve, exchange ideas, and explore effective strategies about blended learning. The conference provides the opportunity for instructors and faculty members, instructional designers, student advisors, administrative leaders, and researchers to share best practices, strategic considerations, models of practice, and challenges revealed through our experiences in practice and research.

Attendees will be able to attend two days of sessions including interactive workshops, information sessions, poster sessions, a plenary session, and a keynote address, all focused on instructional practices, academic planning, faculty development, and assessment/evaluation.

The Online Learning Consortium Blended Learning Conference and Workshop provides the opportunity for attendees to engage with one another throughout this conference sharing information and ideas. As an attendee, you and your institution will benefit from this highly interactive conference as well as become a part of the OLC blended community through membership opportunities, publications, online courses, and more.

One of the highlights of this year’s program is a keynote presentation by internationally known eLearning trainer, speaker and author, Jane Bozarth, who will discuss the power and prevalence of social media in education, as well as strategies for the integration of low cost technologies into the design of blended and online courses. We are also delighted to welcome Ryan Baker, an expert in human-computer interaction and educational data mining, for a plenary presentation featuring his groundbreaking work on the use of analytics to track student learning and engagement in a MOOC, and the implications of his findings for blended learning.

BLEND15 will be held at the Sheraton Denver Downtown on July 7-8, 2015.
