The theme for this year’s Convergence Conference is “Making Higher Education Accessible.” The program committee invites innovative, creative proposals that will engage, educate, and inspire those in attendance. Sessions at the 2016 Kentucky Convergence Conference may focus on innovations in instructional technology, best practices for higher education technology support, current issues for information professionals, shared concerns for Kentucky institutions, and advances in online learning and instructional design. Presenters and attendees at the Kentucky Convergence Conference will include leaders, innovators, managers, and decision-makers from the Information Technology, Library, and Distance Learning units of Kentucky’s colleges and universities.
This year’s theme emphasizes the work instructional designers, librarians, and IT staff do to make higher education more accessible to specific populations, such as students with disabilities, military or place-bound students, or students that have traditionally been underserved by colleges and universities, such as adult learners. This year’s deadline to submit proposals is July 1, and proposers will be notified by August 1.
The proposal submission form will ask for basic presenter contact information as well as details about your presentation, including your abstract for the printed program and your plans for engaging the audience.
Presenters will receive a discounted registration rate of $100 (until August 31–registration after August 31 will be at the current conference rate).
