ELI Online Event 2018 | #ELI2018 Encore! Achieving Student Success through New Models of Learning

July 17 | 12:00 noon – 3:50 p.m. (ET)

Each year, the ELI Annual Meeting explores solutions to our learning community's key issues, engages innovative technology and service providers, and unites expertise across our institutions. More than 700 individuals from 313 institutions, organizations, and companies joined us in New Orleans to experience hands-on workshops, interactive presentations, poster sessions, and preconference workshops. To keep the thematic momentum of #ELI2018 going, we bring to you this fully online, encore edition event. “Encore! Achieving Student Success through New Models of Learning” is designed to showcase selections from the ELI Annual Meeting 2018. This event is an opportunity for the ELI community to:

  • Revisit a beloved session
  • Experience a session you may have missed
  • Share the #ELI2018 experience with your campus colleagues
  • Learn about #ELI2019 presentation and participation opportunities

Join us in taking a look back at the 2018 ELI Annual Meeting program as you plan your participation in the 2019 event.

Is This Event for You?

This online event brought together a gathering of the postsecondary teaching and learning community, with the goal of showcasing selected content from the 2018 ELI Annual Meeting. Nine presenters shared condensed versions of their #ELI2018 sessions. These encore sessions were selected for diversity in topics, institutions types, and presenter qualities. Each session is compact without compromising quality, relevance, or delivery of the session learning outcomes. Participants had the opportunity to identify key ideas and consider how these ideas are relevant to their own institutional context. This session will be especially valuable for those looking to experience a tapas-style mental meal of the most relevant topics in teaching and learning today for:

  • IT leaders interested in teaching and learning issues
  • Learning technologists and instructional designers
  • Directors and staff of campus teaching and learning centers
  • Faculty members and instructors
  • Senior teaching and learning administrators (e.g., deans, provost office staff)
  • Librarians
  • Graduate students interested in a career in college/university teaching

You will receive the greatest value from this online session if you attend as a member of a team or host a group event on your campus. Team participation can help your institution advance a current or upcoming project or encourage cross-disciplinary collaboration. Team members also find that active discussion and engagement with each other during online event activities builds rapport, solidifies plans, and enriches collaboration. By sharing a common online event experience, participants can reflect on the implications for their institution.

How to Prepare

Please review the resources provided to help you frame discussions locally and organize team participation around the online event. We recommend teams consider the ways they can interact both inside the online learning environment and as a team with colleagues at their institution.

Online Learning Space

Presentations are delivered live inside an online learning space designed to promote interaction between the presenters and participants and deep exploration of the content. Participants will have the opportunity to pose questions to experts and their colleagues, review institutional examples, and learn about current practices.
