Enterprise Learning! Conference 2015

 

CALL FOR PAPERS

         Building Smarter Companies           

Submit Paper

Call for Paper Submissions Accepted until February 1, 2015

Enterprise Learning! Conference 2015 (ELC15) hosts the exclusive Learning & Workplace Technology Conference for corporate, government and higher education executives. In partnership with the Department of Defense's Defense Acquisition University and George Mason University, ELC15 co-hosts the 'Innovations in E-learning Symposium' within the Conference. Together, ELC15 provides executives a collegiate environment to network, share and learn from leaders across all sectors. Coupled with cutting edge research, Learning! 100 award winners, and expert learning technologists, this is the 'must attend' forum for learning and performance executives. Join the dialog as a conference presenter by submitting your call for paper by February 1st.

ELC15 Themes

 ELC15 conference features four distinct tracks supporting the theme of 'Building Smarter Organizations.' They are Learning Environments for the Next Generation, Smart Connected Things in Learning, Learning Analytics & Performance in the Big Data Age, and The Learning! 100 Best Practices. You are welcome to submit a paper as well as a proposal for the one-day workshops. Your session should relate to one of the following topic areas:

I. Learning Environments for the Next Generation
Building the Smart Environment: Advances in technology are enabling different and interesting ways of experiencing learning outside the traditional classroom. Presenters should focus on increasing understanding of how future learners will use technologies to meet the life-long learning challenges of the 21st century. Focus on how emerging technologies, culture, and socio-technical systems will influence the way we can and will learn throughout the learning cycle: during personal learning, collaboration among peers, informal learning, when we are at work, play, and in a community.

II. Smart Connected Things in Learning
Enabling the Smart Enterprise: Transformative Internet of Things (IoT) applications are proliferating at an exponential pace. Billions of smart devices are expected to be connected and continuously collect data about our lives and our world by 2020. How to best leverage these technologies for education, learning and training as well as behavioral change remains a challenge. Articulating the potential, processes and outcomes relevant to IoT applications and learning analytics will propel, shift and change e-learning design and delivery models.

III. Learning Analytics & Performance in the Big Data Age
Measuring Impact of the Smart Enterprise: Focusing on the measurement, collection, analysis and reporting of data about learners and their contexts to improve understandings of education and learning and optimize the design of learning environments. Leveraging the power of data mining, interpretation, and analysis models to assess competencies and progress, predict future performance, personalize learning and provide advice and insight on learning and performance.

IV. The Learning! 100: Best Practices
Best Practices of the Smart Enterprise: The Learning! 100 represent the top global learning organizations across the private and public sectors. These sessions feature real-world case studies, best practices and lessons learned from these high performing organizations. Learning! 100 winners are invited to submit a session for the ELC15 conference. (Only past and present 2015 Learning! 100 organizations qualify to submit for this category. Those with pending applications to the 2015 Learning! 100 Award will also be considered.)

Option: Workshops
Building the Smarter Organization: These half-day workshops are deep-dives into building the smarter organization. From building a mobile strategy to E-learning 101, the topics can be varied but provide detailed and useful content for attendees. Each attendee should walk away from the workshop with the tools to plan, implement and measure the initiative. Submit your workshop topic for consideration.

ELC15 Audience
