COHERE 2015 Call for Proposals


You are invited to join the 9th annual fall conference sponsored by COHERE (Collaboration for Online Higher Education & Research) and the CSSHE (Canadian Society for the Study of Higher Education).  The theme of this year’s conference is:

Flexible Learning Designs: Building Community Through Blended, Online, and Multi-Access Learning  in the Post Secondary Classroom.

Through panel discussions and presentations we will explore the implications of this theme.  Proposals will be accepted in the following streams:

  • Building Community: Practice that leads to increased sense of trust, respect, and collaboration in blended and multi-access learning environments.
  • Social Justice:  Policy and successful practice that recognizes that face-to-face education promotes privilege in participation, and research that provides evidence that flexible learning designs promote participation from non-traditional student groups.
  •  Evidence-based research for multi-access and blended learning designs: From tracing learner interactions to configuration of room and interface designs for collaboration
  • Open: The adoption of open learning practices to enhance post-secondary education through an increased global community of learners and leaders.

We invite proposals related to these and other issues related to flexible learning designs for community- enhanced multi-access and blended learning.

Submitting a Proposal

Concurrent presentations will be 40 minutes in length, including time for audience participation. Presenters must register for the conference. To submit a proposal, fill out the submission form available

The FIRST CALL deadline for submissions is 11:59 p.m. MDT on June 24, 2015.  Those sending proposals will be notified by July 15, 2015 as to acceptance. A SECOND CALL deadline is planned for August 15, 2015, but presenters should note that there is limited space available, so there is a possibility the second call may be further limited or cancelled for one or both sites.

The COHERE and CSSHE adjudication committee will invite selected presenters to revise and expand their presentations as chapters in an edited volume on the topic of this conference that will be made available electronically through the COHERE website.
