Seeking Adult Educator Volunteers

Two Opportunities to Volunteer

Designers for Learning is seeking volunteers with adult education expertise (e.g., working with adult learners without a high school diploma and/or those with basic skills gaps) for an evaluation of educational resources. Volunteers are needed for either an:

  1. Evaluation Sprint: A short duration review of instructional materials using an online evaluation rubric from December 17, 2018 – January 7, 2019, or
  2. Extended Expert Review through May 2019.

Those who successfully complete their volunteer assignment in the Evaluation Sprint (approximately 4 hours) will receive a digital badge to add to your LinkedIn profile or other portfolio acknowledging your volunteer service on this project. In addition, selected individuals who volunteer additional time (completing a total of 20 hours) to assist with the Extended Expert Review of the instructional materials through May 2019 will be eligible for a stipend (up to $100) for their service.

To apply as an adult education volunteer, please complete and submit this application by December 3, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. A copy of your application responses will be sent to the email address you supply below. Volunteer selections will be made on December 10th. Thank you for your interest in volunteering with our organization!

2018–June, 2019 Conferences in Educational Technology and Education by Dr. Clayton R. Wright*

Here is Dr. Clayton R. Wright’s  40th version of the Educational Technology and Education Conference list. It comprises 1,719 CONFIRMED events. The events for November and December, 2018 have been updated since distribution of the previous list. As information was not available for a number of events in June 2019, they will be updated in the next or 41st version of this list. As this is a SELECTED list of conferences, it does not include ALL conferences that may be planned.

Though some might question the costs and need of academic conferences now that digital communications is widely available (Colleen Flaherty, 2017), others note the cost of not travelling to conferences – the cost of academic isolation (Matt Reed, 2017). There are merits to both sides of the argument. One could attend a virtual conference one year and an in-person conference the next. Each type of event will offer different experiences. When it is feasible, most of us humans seem to prefer to interact in person. Also, a “serendipity effect” often occurs during in-person conferences – by wondering around and meeting different people, one discovers, by chance, the unexpected. I also hope that the serendipity effect applies to this list – as you review it, you may discover events that are not only new to you but perk your interest.

It is prudent to take the time to conduct your own due diligence for any events you want to attend or submit a paper to. Information on the list was accurate on the distribution date. When you view the list, information may have changed – such as the dates and venue – and some may have been cancelled.

May the list assist you in pursuing your professional development goals!
