Illinois Online Conference Call for Presentation Proposals

Presentation proposals are being accepted for the 5th Annual Illinois Online Conference (IOC) for Teaching and Learning. Featured speakers include Tony Bates, Margaret Maag, Chip Banks and Jonathan Finkelstein. For more information, go to our website at

Submissions will be accepted through December 13, 2006. The conference will be held February 14-16, 2007. Please submit your proposal here:

This year the Curriculum, Technology, and Education Reform (CTER) Online Master of Education Program from the University of Illinois will feature a hybrid conference live from the University of Illinois in Champaign and through the IOC community. Presenters and participants online will be given access to both the IOC and CTER conferences.

This conference - which is attended by participants from all across the globe - is held entirely on the Internet using: live virtual classrooms, recorded presentations, email, web poster sessions, synchronous chats, discussion areas, and other Internet technologies. IOC was created to focus on issues and concerns of K-20 classroom faculty and related technology support, learning resources, student services, and workforce development professionals.

IOC 2007 takes place in a LearningTimes Online Conference Community - an online environment in which groups of participants, both small and large, gather electronically to learn, collaborate and network. Not sure how an online conference works? Want to experience the conference community before registering? Highlights from last year's conference are available at:
