NCDLA Announces 2010 Blended Conference - Program Overview and Speakers Link to NCDLA Announces 2010 Blended Conference - Program Overview and Speakers

The North Carolina Distance Learning Association’s 2010 Conference is less than a month away, but there is still time to register. This year’s conference is a two-part bended format with a two day virtual conference, followed by a two day traditional face-to face conference in New Bern. The two formats provide the perfect solution to learn about what is happening in Distance Learning around the state and across the nation. The regular face-to-face conference affords the most opportunities to network and learn, but if your budget doesn’t allow you to attend in person, then the virtual conference is the next best deal.

Presenters from around the state and nation are scheduled to share best practices, current research, demonstrations, panel discussions, and tutorials. A preview of program topics and speakers for the virtual conference is listed and more details are available on the NCDLA conference website.

The 2010 NCDLA Blended Conference begins with two days of web-based Virtual sessions on March 31th and April 1st, 2010. You can participate in as little or as much of the virtual conference as you want. The traditional face-to-face conference in New Bern, which convenes on April 8th and 9th, offers a wide variety of session topics and will feature vendor exhibits from all of the major players. Register today and plan to meet your peers and friends in New Bern. As always, there will be lots to see and do at the conference.

The following line-up of virtual sessions has been announced, but check on the website to see the latest list. The face-to-face program and speakers will be announced shortly.

The Virtual Conference - March 31 and April 1, 2010

All sessions of the virtual conference will take place online using Centra web conferencing software.

Last year’s virtual conference was a great success with 655 registrants from around North Carolina and the U.S.  In 2010, we will blend the best features of last year’s virtual conference with a face-to-face conference.

The 2010 NCDLA Blended Conference begins with two days of web-based sessions that can be attended from anywhere you access the Internet. The following week, we’ll convene in historic New Bern, N.C. where we will extend the experience with all the elements of a traditional conference.  The idea is that we’ll get to know one another through online sessions, and then deepen our conversations and acquaintances by meeting face-to-face.  If you can’t attend the New Bern conference, then become a member of NCDLA for only $25, and join us for the webinars and the 2-day Virtual Pre-conference!
