Call for Presenters!

Blended Learning: Mixing People and Technology

The 2019 New England Area Conference Design Committee invites you to submit a proposal to facilitate a concurrent session at our 2019 conference. The theme and conference title for 2019 is Blended Learning: Mixing People and Technology.  Many organizations attempt to follow a blended approach to their learning programs.  This year we are looking for presenters to address:

  • How does your organization decide whether to abandon a traditional classroom setting and when to invest in e-learning along with the infrastructure to support it?
  • What is the right mix given your resources and other constraints?
  • How do you assess an organization’s technical readiness to migrate from a traditional model to a blended model?
  • How do you overcome preconceived notions of training and ensure that your blended learning program delivers the desired learning outcomes?
  • How do you create a strong blend between digital and non-digital learning?

Sessions should be highly interactive, thought provoking, and provide creative ideas that can shape and advance the learning and performance of individuals, leaders, teams and organizations.

Upon completion please send to

Deadline extended until December 21, 2018!!!
