Make your knowledge shine via conferences and online fora


The eLearning Guild has launched its recent call for presenters. And if you still have some time in the fall, or you want to show off your latest eLearning accomplishment, this might just be for you.

I have put two proposals in, one on mobile learning with added social media (for the online fora) and one on the challenges of eLearning with a focus on cultural diversity (for the DevLearn conference). Hoping they will get through the selection process.

So digg in and get your proposals to the eLearning Guild as well.


The eLearning Guilds call to be a presenter in your Online Forums
"Do you have a success story to share on overcoming the challenges to designing, developing, or implementing e-Learning? Do you have insights and expertise on building e-Learning that can reach the global masses? Do you have successful tips for rapidly building engaging e-Learning? If you do, then consider sharing your ideas, experiences and expertise by presenting at one of these upcoming Online Forums:

Sept 10–11 | How I Turned my e-Learning Challenge into a Success Story
Oct 1–2 | Globalization, Localization, Translation, Oh MY!
Dec 10–11 | Tips, Tricks, and Techniques for Streamlining your e-Learning Development

Proposals are now being accepted. You don’t need experience presenting online (we have coaches who will help you). Not only do others benefit from hearing your story, but you gain professional experience and receive a free registration to the event! Submit Your Proposal Today!" as mentioned in the eLearning Guild's newsletter.


Call for speakers for the DevLearn conference
The DevLearn conference is a great conference to meet with fellow eLearning professionals from across the globe. It will be organized in San José, California, USA this year from 10 - 13 November 2009.

Just take a look at the aim of the conference and if you feel like it, put in a proposal but watch out for the deadline: 22 May 2009.

Clearly it was a proposal writing day today.
