Happy New Year and welcome back! Let’s start off the new year by announcing the CNIE conference — a merger between AMTEC and CADE that promises to generate some fresh energy for Educational Technology in Canada. Here’s the announcement I picked up from a CIDER communication this morning:
The Canadian Network for Innovation in Education (CNIE) is proud to present its inaugural conference April 27-30, 2008, in Banff, Alberta. Created in 2007, CNIE is the result of a merger of the Canadian Association for Distance Education (CADE) and the Association for Media and Technology in Education (AMTEC).
CNIE strives to:
– Advance the use of technology in all educational settings including distributed learning, open/distance education and institutional contexts at all levels, and
– Promote research into the theory and practice of distributed, distance and other technology-enhanced learning.
We invite presentations that will inspire participants to reach new heights as they work toward these goals. More details regarding the Call for Proposals may be found on the conference website:
The deadline for the Call for Proposals is January 15th, 2008.
