AAACE 2016 Conference: Proposal to Present Deadline Extended to 5/11/16!

The 2016 AAACE Annual Conference is scheduled for Nov. 8-11, 2016 in beautiful Albuquerque, New Mexico. Our theme is “Celebrating the Rich Landscape of Adult Learning.” The deadline to submit a proposal(s) to present has been extended until Wednesday, May 11, 2016. A RFP for presenters, including varied formats, is available here.

CDLT members/non-members are encouraged to submit proposals to present or poster themes in all areas of distance learning or technology at the intersection of adult learning to help build on an already strong virtual landscape in all subjects. Presenters may include both practitioners and academics. What is your story? Topics on technology may focus on: use of new technologies, new ways to use current technologies, future trends, workshops, panel presentations, case studies, how-to sessions, community based or higher-education best practices, research, research-to-practice, phenomenological research focusing on “lived experiences” and more! The CDLT serves practitioners, faculty, graduate students, trainers, instructional designers, managers, consultants, nonprofits, businesses and all others who use technology in serving adults.

Check “Distance and Online Learning (including Technology)” when submitting a related proposal. The AAACE and CDLT cultivate a welcoming interactive environment for presenters.

CDLT Seeks Reviewers of Proposals to Present: Deadline 5/11/16

The CDLT is recruiting peer reviewers of proposals to present in the “Distance and Online Learning (including Technology)” topical areas for the 2016 AAACE Conference. The time commitment is minimal. Reviewers help shape the conference program, and learn about best-practices and emerging trends in distance education and technology at the intersection of adult learning. Serving as a peer reviewer for a major national conference also builds the credentials and resumes/vitaes of both practitioners and academics in the diverse field of adult learning.

If you have knowledge and experience in distance learning and technology and would like to serve as a peer reviewer, email by May 11, 2016. Include AAACE CDLT PEER REVIEWER in the subject line. Instructions will follow in a separate email, so check your in-box regularly.

CDLT Seeks Summer Webinar Presenters on Social Media and Electronic Portfolios: Deadline 5/11/16

An enhanced lineup of CDLT webinars is planned as part of the new AAACEd It! Webinar Series. For the leisurely Summer months, webinar topics may include short yet practical skill-building opportunities like: strategies for developing an electronic portfolio; and utilizing Linked-In for professional networking or to grow a brand.

If interested in co-presenting, send email to: by May 11, 2016. Include CDLT WEBINAR in the subject line, along with a one-paragraph summary of your experience and knowledge regarding the proposed topic.

ICACE Invites CDLT Members to Submit Article Proposals for International Publication

The American Association for Adult and Continuing Education (AAACE), at its annual conference general session on November 19, 2015, launched an International Compendium of Adult and Continuing Education (ICACE). The purpose of this 500 page print and e-Edition hybrid publication in conjunction with Stylus Publishing, scheduled for release in late 2017, is to map the knowledge base of the field. It will contain more than 100 succinct and substantive articles written by able practitioners and scholars from various countries and parts of the field. Visit the Compendium website here.

Members of associations worldwide who work in the field, such as those who specialize in distance learning or technology at the intersection of adult learning, are encouraged to visit this website for information about the Compendium and how to submit a proposal to author an article or to assist with editing.
