CALL FOR PROPOSALS
TCC 2012 invites faculty, support staff, librarians, counselors, student affairs professionals, students, administrators, and educational consultants to submit proposals for papers and general sessions.
Social media, such as Twitter and Facebook, have facilitated communication, sharing, collaboration and creativity among students and faculty.
Students and faculty have converged on the Internet to share their views and utilize Web 2.0 tools for teaching and learning.
There are many issues and concerns, however, that have yet to be answered fully: How do faculty, staff, students and the communities served produce positive learning outcomes? How do students learn best through virtual worlds, educational games, augmented reality, or mobile devices? What technologies continue to reshape e-learning? How do we support our colleagues?
TCC invites papers and general session proposals related to educational technology such as open educational resources, e-learning, virtual communities, social media tools and mobile learning. A broad range of proposals are encouraged, including, but not limited to:
– Perspectives and experiences with emerging learning technologies
– Case studies in using ICT and social media tools in learning
– Enabling student collaboration, creativity, and sharing
– Building and sustaining communities of learners
– Instructional applications in virtual worlds
– Distance learning programs and practices
– Blogging and micro-blogging experiences
– Ubiquitous and lifelong learning
– Mobile learning applications
– Open educational resources (OER)
– Online student services and advising
– Assessment strategies for online learning
– Professional development for faculty and staff
– Global access and intercultural communication
– Educational technology in developing countries
– Projects for seniors and persons with disabilities
– E-Books and other modes of content distribution
– Educational game design, rubrics, and assessment
– Online learning resources (library, learning centers, etc.)
– Social networking games and MMORPGs in education
– Gender equity, intercultural understanding, and open access
– Augmented reality; blending virtual content in real environments
– Online, hybrid, or blended modes of technology supported learning
This conference accepts three categories of proposals: papers, general sessions and student sessions.
Papers are submitted in full and will be subjected to a blind peer review. Papers that do not meet submission requirements will be returned to the primary author. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings.
General sessions may be conducted in many ways including a forum, discussion, round table, panel, or pre-conference activity. These proposals will also be subject to a blind peer review.
Proposals that involve student presenters are greatly encouraged. Fees for student presenters will be waived. Student presentations will be scheduled later in the day.
Acceptances will be conveyed to the primary author or presenter by email.
The submission deadline is
January 16, 2012 January 24, 2012.
