I often use this sentence to start our monthly Exploring Learning Technologies Community (ELT) meetings. ELT is a grassroots community of Ohio State staff and instructors who meet once a month to share practice on all things educational technology related. Our community turns seven years old this July and took root from a simple announcement my good friend Laura and I placed in OSUToday, the campus digest sent daily to all staff and faculty.
OIDA – Expanding World Views and Sharing Expertise
At last year’s Innovate, a group of instructional designers from around the state gathered to share lunch and ideas about how to network and connect on a regular basis. The result was the Ohio Instructional Designers Association. We include Instructional Designers (IDs) working for higher education institutions, independent curriculum designers, corporate learning and training managers, and those with a passion for designing instruction that improves learning outcomes.
Steven Johnson may be the one person who uses the term innovation more frequently than we do. We are ecstatic to welcome him as the keynote speaker for Innovate 2015.
Johnson explores innovations of the past and future. His storytelling captures imaginations across the world, whether it's from his seat on the Colbert Report, his renowned columns, or on the set of his PBS series. He explores dynamic shifts that make way for big, progressive changes.
When you sign up for the conference you'll get a chance to preview the breakout sessions for the day. Let us know what looks interesting and we'll use that data to plan how the rooms are scheduled. Don't worry, commitaphobes--you can always change your mind later and attend whichever session you'd like.
