CNIE Call for Proposals

February 14, 2014 @ 10:00 pm

Abstracts must be submitted by February 14, 2014.

Theme: Confluences: Spaces, Places & Cultures for Innovative Learning

Confluences: junctions, connections, flowing together – elements of learning.

Kamloops, the location of the 2014 CNIE Conference is literally “the meeting of the waters” – a place where arid mountains, rushing rivers, valley bottom, and transportation routes converge into a diverse whole. Our conference host Thompson Rivers University is as diverse as its locale. Similarly, CNIE affiliated institutions are comprehensive, blending academic, professional and vocational cultures through both face to face and distance delivery modes, serving a vibrant and diverse student population. The confluence of these diverse elements has created synergy and innovative learning opportunities.

Through this conference, we provide an avenue to explore and discuss the innovative learning that can arise when various elements come together. Explore your own confluences of spaces, places and cultures and the creativity they bring to the learning process.

Spaces: virtual, face to face and where the two intersect, mobile learning, influence of space on teaching and professional practice, new spaces and innovation, accessibility, collaboration, identity.

Places: places and pedagogy, locales, institutions, leadership and change, learning communities, unique opportunities, learning journeys, beyond the walls, open access, innovative projects, classroom design, places of the future

Cultures: change agents, advocates for openness, research practices, professional learning, sector or discipline-based contexts, global – intercultural, international and interdisciplinary opportunities, examining traditions.
