As many educational institutions have turned to alternate delivery modes for their programs, in response to the current Covid-19 pandemic, COHERE has decided to move the 2020 Annual Conference into an alternative format.
Starting on September 2020, COHERE is partnering with the Canadian Institute of Distance Education Research (CIDER) to offer an ongoing series of current research and evidence-informed practice webinars focused on online and blended learning, in Canadian higher education. Each month a presenter or a panel of presenters will share research findings and facilitate discussion focused on a relevant topic or issue. The webinar series is designed to showcase current Canadian research on online and blended learning and how it is informing practice. This series of synchronous virtual sessions provides an opportunity for knowledge dissemination among researchers, practitioners, instructional designers, and educational developers.
For more information about each of the webinars, please refer to the COHERE and CIDER websites for the schedule of topics and presenters. Here are the dates of the upcoming series: Sept. 30, Oct. 21, Nov.
18, Dec. 16, Jan. 27, Feb. 17, March 17, April 21, May 19, and June 16.
Call for Proposals: If you wish to present your research in this webinar series, please submit a proposal using the online form http://cohere.ca/call-for-proposals-2020. There is a call for proposals for the Fall semester due on September 15, 2020 and for the Winter/Spring semester due on December 1, 2020. All proposals will be peer-reviewed.
