2nd Annual Technology in Education Symposium:
Making TIES 2.0 @ Western
Engaging our Community! Play, Learn, Share
The Technology in Education Symposium (TIES) is back, bigger and better than ever. This two-day event on March 27 and March 28 will feature research paper presentations, lightning rounds, hands-on workshops, posters and demonstrations, and a student panel on the uses of instructional technology. TIES 2.0 is open to faculty, librarians, staff, postgrads, and graduate students from across all disciplines at Western and its affiliates.
We are seeking proposals for research-based paper presentations, roundtables, lightening sessions, and posters, as well as for workshop presenters, on a wide range of subjects, but with a particular focus upon “playing” (i.e., experimenting), “learning” (on the part of both students and instructors), and “sharing.” Paper sessions will address research on eLearning and instructional technology to engage students and enrich learning. In addition, we are requesting proposals for concurrent workshops focusing on practical aspects of using educational technologies. Share your expertise and be a part of this exciting event!
Proposals should specify one of the following:
- Papers of approximately 20 minutes in length
- Short papers for the lightning round, of approximately 5 minutes in length. Lightning round papers identify particular issues and/or solutions relating to eLearning in a way that provokes interest and response.
- Hands-on Workshops, of approximately 90 minutes in length
- Poster presentations. Poster presenters should be prepared to deliver a 3 minute introduction to their posters at the commencement of the poster session
Space and easels for display will be provided to poster presenters. A support workshop framework and computer technology will be available for workshop leaders.
Possible subjects for papers, roundtables, posters, and workshops:
- Philosophies of education and technology
- Academic integrity and intellectual property
- Innovative employments of OWL in teaching
- Design and implementation of online courses
- Clickers, multimedia, and in-class technology
- Innovative uses of slide shows, multimedia, and online resources
- Blogging and social media platforms as teaching tools
- Web site design for courses
- Flipped classrooms and blended learning
- Immersive worlds
- Innovative platforms and applications
- Technology and accessibility in the classroom
- Case studies on the use of technology in education
- Evaluating the success of instructional technology
- Success stories about instructional technology
- Issues and problem areas for technology in teaching
- Research in progress
- Other topics on instructional technology appropriate to a poster-length treatment
We will accept multiple submissions. Please indicate if you would be willing to present your paper proposal as a lightning paper or poster presentation instead.
Please submit proposals for first consideration by December 21, 2013 at the latest (vetting and acceptance / decline should be completed by January 6, 2014). Please send inquiries to email@example.com. We look forward to hearing from you!
