What is the Blended Learning Conference?

Conference attendees look at poster, from last year's poster session.These conferences (now in their sixth year) are a forum for faculty and staff to share resources, techniques, findings, and experiences related to blended learning, broadly defined. Presentations this year cover topics including programmatic innovation, flipped classrooms, open educational resources, and emerging, experimental methods. We’re welcoming over 80 presenters from all over the world.

For those who enjoy hands-on learning, we’re offering a bigger roster of workshops than ever before, on topics including video production, accessibility, shared annotation, and augmented reality. (Free pre-registration required for workshops.)

We’re especially excited this year to announce our keynote speaker, Roopika Risam. Risam is an assistant professor of English at Salem State University. Her research “examines intersections between postcolonial, African American, and US ethnic studies, and the role of digital humanities in mediating between them.” For our conference, she’ll be speaking about these topics in the context of hybrid and blended teaching.
