These conferences are intended as a forum for faculty and staff to share resources, techniques, findings, and experiences related to blended learning, with a particular emphasis on how it can be used to improve learning outcomes and support the close faculty-student relationships and deep, lifelong learning that are the hallmarks of a liberal arts education.
Our working definition of "blended learning" is quite broad, encompassing courses or approaches in which a) students get feedback on their learning outside of the classroom through computer-based resources or activities and b) the computer-based component informs or alters how the instructor uses class time.

Call for Presentations
Teaching or supporting a blended course? Consider presenting! We would love to learn more about your experiences with blended learning -- what has worked or not worked on your campus, techniques or strategies you have found particularly effective, useful resources or technologies you've discovered, and so on. Registration fees will be waived for presenters, and some money will be available to help cover travel and accommodations costs.
