Dr. Clayton R. Wright’s Conferences in Educational Technology

Dr. Clayton R. Wright is an old friend, and he has been performing this remarkable service for 37 years.  37!  Where have the years gone? (Correction:  Stephen Downes was kind enough to point out that it has been about half that long — but 37 editions of the list were published in that time).  Here is his latest edition of the Educational Technology and Education Conference list.  Thanks, Clayton, on behalf of educators around the globe who benefit from your contribution!

I’m including the text of his email, as it is instructive about how you should use and interpret the list.

————————————

Attached is the 37th edition of the educational technology and education conference list. It comprises URLs or weblinks to 1,728 CONFIRMED professional development events. Since the distribution of the previous list, 176 events have been added to May and June 2017.

At the beginning of every conference list, I ask viewers to “take the time to conduct your own due diligence for any events you want to attend or submit a paper to.” Fake journals and conferences are scams. We need to be “scam-resistant” to academic communications just as we have become resistant to Internet scams.

A colleague in South Africa recently attended a conference that was presented like a symposium rather than in the multi-track format that was advertized. The 80-100 people in attendance all had submitted a paper and their papers were accepted. Then, they were charged a high fee to attend the “conference” even though there were no keynote speakers, only one room was booked for the event, and no meals were served. During the two-day event, each attendee was given 10 minutes to “read” their paper. No time was allocated for questioning the presenters. Neither were debates or other interactive sessions held.

Another colleague in Toronto said she receives “two or three invitations a day to write articles… The last one wanted $100 to review the paper and $2,999 to publish it.”

While assembling this conference list, I saw a photo of a colleague on a conference site. I contacted my friend and congratulated him on his speaking engagement in China. He said “What are you talking about? I haven’t been invited to Asia!” Apparently, without his permission, his photo and name were used to promote the conference.

As Alex Gillis recently wrote in University Affairs, academics are being reeled in by scam journals. (A number of organizations that produce questionable journals also produce questionable conferences.) Some educators have relied on Jeffrey Beall’s list of potential or probable predatory journals. But that list is now only available at the Internet archive. However, others, such as Walt Crawford and Hontas Farmer, have questioned the basis for including journals on Beall’s list. Thus, one may want to review the guidance provided here http://thinkchecksubmit.org and check your gut – if it doesn’t feel quite right, perhaps additional scrutiny is required.

It is probably true that the rise of such journals and conferences is due to the low investment one has to make to use the Internet as a distribution channel. But I wonder if we, in general, don’t bear some responsibility for this increase as we need to have our papers published or presented in order to gain credibility and to further our career. And, we want this done as quickly as possible. But, do we gain credibility if we submit our article to a journal that doesn’t perform peer-review or edit the material? Do we gain credibility if we present at a conference that doesn’t actively review and select submissions and does not allow the audience to question the content of the presentations?
The 37th edition of the conference list covers selected events that primarily focus on the use of technology in educational settings and on teaching, learning, and educational administration. I trust that you and your colleagues will find something of interest.

Best regards!

Clayton

Call for Proposals to Host CELT (Collected Essays on Learning and Teaching) | An Institutional Opportunity


The Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE) is seeking a editorial team from a Canadian college or university to assume management of the Collected Essays on Learning and Teaching (CELT) journal, for a two-year term, with the option of extending the commitment beyond this period.

The CELT journal is published semi-annually, and is an online peer-reviewed journal. It includes scholarly and practice-based articles associated with the annual conference of the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE). Now in its seventh volume, the intent is to challenge conference presenters to convert the essence of their peer-reviewed sessions into essay form for dissemination to a wider readership interested in teaching improvement practices in higher education.

CELT was created by a team at the University of Windsor who managed the editorial team from 2007 thru 2014. The managing task was then passed to Neil Haave at the University of Alberta who has overseen the CELT publication for the last three years. The University of Windsor’s Library has graciously agreed to continue hosting the journal site using the open journal system.

The editorial team includes a managing editor, administrative assistant and five section editors to manage the peer review process. The team will be supported through the transition process by the past managing editors.

If your institution is interested in this exciting opportunity or would like more information, please contact dianne.bateman@mcgill.ca

Please visit the following link for detailed information about the journal:

Deadline
The deadline for proposals is 31 May 2017.


Appel à propositions pour accueillir la revue CELT | Une occasion institutionnelle


La Société pour l’avancement de la pédagogie dans l’enseignement supérieur (SAPES) est à la recherche d’une équipe de rédaction basée dans une université canadienne ou un collège canadien pour diriger la revue Collected Essays on Learning and Teaching (CELT) (Recueil d’essais sur l’apprentissage et l’enseignement) pour un mandat de deux ans avec possibilité de prolonger ce mandat à l’échéance de cette période.

La revue CELT est une revue évaluée par les pairs publiée en ligne deux fois par an. Elle comprend des articles universitaires ainsi que des articles basés sur la pratique liés au congrès annuel de la Société pour l’avancement de la pédagogie dans l’enseignement supérieur (SAPES). Sept volumes ont été publiés à ce jour. Son objectif est de mettre au défi les personnes qui ont fait des présentations lors du congrès de convertir leurs sessions évaluées par les pairs en essais afin que ceux-ci soient disséminés auprès d’un lectorat plus vaste intéressé à l’amélioration des pratiques d’enseignement dans l’enseignement supérieur.

La revue CELT a été créée par un groupe de l’Université de Windsor. Ces personnes ont dirigé les processus de rédaction et de publication depuis sa création, en 2007, jusqu’en 2014. La direction a été ensuite transférée à Neil Haave, de l’Université de l’Alberta, qui s’est chargé de la publication de la revue pendant trois ans. La bibliothèque de l’Université de Windsor a généreusement accepté de continuer à accueillir le site web de la revue au moyen de la plateforme Open Journal System.

L’équipe de rédaction comprend un directeur et rédacteur en chef/une directrice et rédactrice en chef, un adjoint administratif/une adjointe administrative et cinq rédacteurs/rédactrices de section dont le rôle est de diriger le processus d’évaluation par les pairs. L’équipe sera soutenue tout au long du processus de transition par les directeurs et rédacteurs en chef précédents.

Si votre établissement s’intéresse à cette occasion unique ou désire recevoir davantage de renseignements, veuillez vous adresser à Dianne Bateman à l’adresse : dianne.bateman@mcgill.ca

Date limite
