Get Published! Put your E-Learning Experiences to Work
Concurrent Session 5
Discover the benefits of being published and sharing your e-learning experiences with a wider audience through online and alternative outlets. Bring your questions, share your ideas, and explore writing opportunities in this informative and lively discussion. Contribute to knowledge-sharing in the e-learning community!
Are you interested in writing about your research and professional experiences in e-learning? Are you aware that many opportunities exist outside of refereed and peer-reviewed journals? Every professional and community experience provides opportunities for publication, including your participation at OLC Accelerate. For those of you presenting at the conference, consider how the time and preparation you put into your presentation might be the basis for submitting an article. If you are an attendee, consider how your experiences at the conference could result in writing a book review, reflective blog post, or publishing an interview.
In this session, attendees will:
Learn about the types of writing and editorial roles you can pursue
Identify current opportunities for publication in the e-learning field
Find out out to pitch your ideas to a variety of e-learning and online education publications.
Explore writing styles and article types (e.g., interviews, reviews, case studies)
Gain realistic expectations for the typical process of submission and review
Understand the process of transforming a successful conference presentation into a manuscript
Leave the session with a plan for how to get started.
The presenters together have almost 30 years of combined online education experience in roles ranging from instructional design and faculty development to teaching and program management. In addition to their individual forays into blogging, they have published their practical experiences in online education through multiple outlets and currently serve on the Editorial Advisory Board of eLearn Magazine. They will share their tips and lessons learned, and encourage feedback from session attendees.
Everyone working in e-learning can benefit from this session, whether veteran or novice. Bring your questions, share your ideas, and join us for this informative and lively discussion. Discover how you can contribute to knowledge-sharing in the e-learning community!
