WCET’s 33rd Annual Meeting will blend the practice and policy of digital learning in a one-day virtual event on November 2, 2021
Virtual sessions will include:
The WCET Annual Meeting is known for bringing together diverse perspectives and pragmatic solutions to digital learning in higher education. Current WCET members and non-members are encouraged to submit proposals and attend the meeting on November 2. Proposals are due by the end of the day April 9, 2021.
Who will attend the Annual Meeting?
The WCET audience represents leaders in digital learning in higher education who bring incredible insights and experiences, thus creating opportunities for meaningful dialogue.
Who should submit a proposal?
WCET members and non-members are invited to submit and attend. The program is a blend of formal presentations and informal discussions to foster idea exchange and networking. Sessions that are collaborative and interactive are preferred.
Due to the shorter meeting format, session slots are limited. However, WCET uses proposal submissions for other content throughout the year, so all ideas are welcomed and you may be invited to participate in a blog, webcast, or other virtual programs.
Sponsors and Corporate Members
EdTech companies, WCET corporate members, and WCET sponsors are invited to submit proposals that include client perspectives as regular concurrent sessions listed above. They will be reviewed with the same consideration of other submissions, provided they are not specifically a demo or direct marketing of the product or service.
A limited number of sponsor session slots are provided to Leader level sponsors and higher and do not need to be submitted through the call for proposal system but must be submitted via email by June 1. The sponsor sessions are separate from the initial call for proposals. If you are interested in participating in a sponsor session, please email staff for more information and view the benefits and opportunities.
The Call for Proposals for this year's Annual Meeting is open through April 9, 2021.
The early bird registration rate for the Annual Meeting for speakers and WCET members will be $199. Additional colleagues from the same institution can register for $35 per registration.
Registration opens in June; all speakers must register for the Annual Meeting by October 2.
Please review all submission information carefully.
Sessions will take place via Zoom within our event platform. Sessions will occur live and will not be prerecorded.
Presenters are encouraged to minimize the use of PowerPoint in order to increase audience engagement and participation. Virtual engagement tools such as polls are encouraged; it is the presenter’s responsibility to plan this in advance with WCET staff.
Session Format Options
Select your preferred format for the virtual presentation during the proposal process. The final program will be a blend of formats.
