2012 Kentucky Innovations Conference - Call for Proposals

Proposals are still being accepted for the 2012 Kentucky Innovations Conference!

A new blend of the former conferences: Convergence/CPE's KYSoTL/Teacher Quality Summit

One conference, one trip, and wide array of information, ideas, and updates!

May 16-18, 2012, NKU METS Center, Erlanger, KY

Proposals due February 29, 2012 at

Join us for a dynamic conference that offers innovative ideas for Kentucky education institutions from pedagogy to technology. Think of this as two conferences in one, with one day emphasizing pedagogical issues, another emphasizing technology issues and the day in the middle focused on issues that blend the two, such as eLearning and library research. This conference creates a learning community focused on examining topics related to P-12, adult and post-secondary education. The conference is sure to have something for everyone from server administrators to professors.

Peer-reviewed presentations, panel discussions, poster sessions and corporate partners will provide conference participants the opportunity to discuss the scholarship of teaching and learning and to share innovative instructional techniques and technologies. Upon completion of the conference, participants will understand major trends and key issues facing Kentucky education.

The conference will begin on Wednesday morning, May 16th with presentations focused on pedagogy and the scholarship of teaching and learning. On Thursday, May 17th, the presentations will focus on eLearning and instructional technologies used for teaching and learning. Then on Friday, May 18th, the presentations will focus on Information Technology (IT) topics such as server administration, disaster recovery, etc.
