What to do at the iNACOL Symposium #inacol13

Every year at this time of year, I am excited to get to attend the iNACOL Symposium. In past years, I was a participant and now, I am honored to get to attend as a member of the iNACOL staff.  Each year, I most enjoy catching up with those I have met in the past to hear how their blended and online programs have grown and meeting new people to hear about developing programs or research across the world. This year is no different as there are more people attending than ever before!

In addition, there are several new features of the iNACOL Symposium that have been added that take place during each of the regular conference days.

Today, I wanted to share about the “Meet the Experts Campfire Sessions” feature at the symposium.  Since we are in Florida and the weather will be wonderful, these will take place out side on the Crescent Terrace. This will be an opportunity to have an informal conversation with experts in the blended or online learning space. Feel free to just drop by and chat with the experts at their scheduled times.  Look for the schedule in the program and on the conference website later this week. Some of the experts at the campfire sessions will be:  Susan Patrick, Chris Sturgis, Michael Horn, Tom Vander Ark, Rick Hess, Bror Saxberg, Anthony Kim, Julie Young and Andy Calkins.

See you at the Symposium! #inacol13

    Interesting how there isn’t a single person among these “experts” that has conducted empirical research. Wonder what qualifies one to be an expert? I ask because with the exception of one name on that list, I don’t seem anyone there that doesn’t represent a neo-liberal ideology towards online learning and K-12 education in general. Maybe that’s how one becomes an expert?
