2018 Kentucky Convergence Conference, UofL Shelby Campus

The 2018 Kentucky Convergence Conference will be held October 17-19 at the University of Louisville Shelby Campus. The call for proposals will be issued in spring 2018. This year’s theme is “The Next Reality: Doing it Farther, Faster, and Better.”  New tools, technologies, techniques, and requirements are constantly emerging, leading us to evaluate what we are doing and how we can do it farther, faster, and better. The program committee invites proposals that will engage, educate, and inspire those in attendance.

Examples of potential topics:

 Meeting standards and regulations (Next Reality)
 Addressing the needs of students who live at a distance (Farther)
 Being more efficient in our workflow (Faster)
 Any type of best practices (Better)
 Shared concerns for Kentucky institutions (Next Reality)
 Technology infrastructure (Farther, Faster, Better)
 Cloud storage and security (Better)
 Advances in online learning and instructional design (Farther)

Convergence is the single event that brings together professionals in information technology, academic libraries, online learning, and instructional design from all the public and private colleges and universities in Kentucky and the surrounding states. Sponsored by Kentucky post-secondary institutions and private sector partners, Kentucky Convergence is a conference that emphasizes innovations and best practices in the fastest-growing areas of higher education.
