Community Blossoms at Open Apereo 2014
Hilton Downtown - Miami, FL
June 1-4, 2014
Get ready to share your success stories at our Open Apereo 2014 conference in Miami, Florida! This year's conference will be held in one of the world's most popular vacation spots. It offers multiple enticements for everyone, the trendy nightlife, the Art Deco district, the rich culture, and its renowned food. Mark your calendars (June 1-4, 2014) and join us this year at the Open Apereo 2014 Conference. We invite you to submit a proposal now!
Come learn about - and share your experience with - the many projects and activities within the Apereo community which support the academic mission:
Sakai 10 with tools to encourage teaching, learning, research, and collaboration
uPortal to present a unified view of campus services
CAS to offer single sign-on to multiple online resources
Bedework to deliver a robust calendaring solution
uMobile, a framework for innovative mobile solutions
Apereo OAE, a next-generation platform to promote effective collaboration, communication, and knowledge building online
We welcome your proposals. Share your great work with the community, explore effective teaching practices, and spark new developments and innovation through a presentation session, lightning talks, showcase night demo, or a birds of a feather discussion session. We are also offering a new format: "flipped" presentation. In addition to traditional presentations, interested presenters can apply the flipped teaching method to a presentation session by offering the presentation for attendees "online" before the conference and use the face-to-face session in Miami for deeper discussion, collaboration, and learning.
The deadline for submissions is February 7, 2014. Proposals entered by January 21 will be eligible for early review decisions by February 1.
The Apereo conference in Miami is a global networking point for practitioners. There will be opportunities during and around the conference for meeting, sharing, and learning from others in our global community. A special preconference gathering will feature presentations in Spanish from Latin America and Spain.
We look forward to your proposal!
