for January to June 2017, Edition #36 Prepared by Clayton R. Wright, crwr77 at gmail.com, November 12, 2016
The 36th edition of the conference list covers selected events that primarily focus on the use of technology in educational settings and on teaching, learning, and educational administration. Only listings until May 2017 are complete as dates, locations, or Internet addresses (URLs) were not available for a number of events held from June 2017 onward. In order to protect the privacy of individuals, only URLs are used in the listing as this enables readers of the list to obtain event information without submitting their e-mail addresses to anyone. A significant challenge during the assembly of this list is incomplete or conflicting information on websites and the lack of a link between conference websites from one year to the next.
An explanation for the content and format of the list can be found at http://newsletter.alt.ac.uk/2011/08/why-distribute-documents-in-ms-word-or-openoffice-for-an-international-audience/. A Word or an OpenOffice format is used to enable people with limited or high-cost Internet access to find a conference that is congruent with their interests or obtain conference abstracts or proceedings. Consider using the “Find” tool under Microsoft Word’s “Edit” tab or similar tab in OpenOffice to locate the name of a particular conference, association, city, or country. If you enter the country “Singapore” in the “Find” tool, all conferences that occur in Singapore will be highlighted. Or, enter the word “research” or “assessment”. (Note that key words such as “research”, “assessment” or “MOOCs” may not be present in the conference title, yet these topics could be discussed during a particular conference.) Then, “cut and paste” a list of suitable events for your colleagues.
Please note that events, dates, titles, and locations may change and some events may be cancelled. Thus, CHECK the specific conference website not only for basic information, but to assure yourself that the conference is legitimate. It would be advantageous to examine http://fakejournals.blogspot.ca/ or Jeffry Beale’s list of questionable publishers and organizations http://scholarlyoa.com/2012/12/06/bealls-list-of-predatory-publishers-2013/ so that you could consider whether you want to attend events sponsored by these organizations. Publications, such as Inside Higher Edhttp://www.insidehighered.com/quicktakes/2013/10/30/new-scam-targets-scholars, http://ottawacitizen.com/technology/science/the-editor-is-late-fake-science-journals-hit-new-low and http://www.biomedcentral.com/1741-7015/13/230 have also pointed out the need for scholars to be on the lookout for scams. Take the time to conduct your own due diligence for any events you want to attend or submit a paper to.
All Web addresses were verified at the time of publication. No liability is assumed for any errors that may have been introduced inadvertently during the assembly of this FREE conference list. Kindly retain the contact information when you re-distribute the list or mount it on the web as that is how I receive updates. Prior to attending a conference, consider reading “How to Get the Most Out of a Conference” by Stephen Downes.
