Registration is open for the LMS Pre-conference and the main conference!
Registration closes July 20.
The second annual 2018 LMS Preconference will be held at the JCCC Co-Lab located in the OCB Building on JCCC’s campus on Aug. 1, 2018 (Wed.)! The event begins 10:30 a.m. and will wrap around 5 p.m.
Presentations based on Role Tracks
This year, the presentations are organized by “role” tracks: administrator, instructional designer, faculty/instructor/teacher, educational technologist, librarian, and other. (Organizers welcome those who can present from Zoom or another web conferencing tool as well, to enable a wide range of LMS types to be included in the schedule.)
An optional no-host social will follow at 6:00 p.m.. This will be at Johnny’s Tavern Ridgeview (10384 S. Ridgeview Road, Olathe, KS 66061).
The 2018 LMS Preconference event is $10, and the optional boxed lunch is an additional $15. This event is an add-on to the SIDLIT 2018 conference and is billed separately.
