"Engaging the Global Community - Looking Over the Horizon"

Join us for the 5th Annual MERLOT Conference to celebrate our accomplishments in creating and bringing together our global community of educators. This year, the Tennessee Board of Regents hosts the conference. Tennessee is the land of many innovations; it is here that Sequoyah devised the Cherokee alphabet in 1809. That innovative alphabet led to the literacy of the Cherokee Nation and expanded its world. This year, through our theme, Engaging the Global Community – Looking Over the horizon, we too will expand our understanding of the global world of online teaching and learning.

Our goal is to engage you in preparing for what lies beyond the horizon with the globalization of digital teaching and learning through pre-conference workshops, concurrent sessions, round tables, hands-on workshops, panel sessions in addition to our thought-provoking keynote addresses by world renowned leaders in higher education and technology.

The MERLOT International Conference is unique because we bring together the broad spectrum of higher education, from members of community colleges to research universities. We span the disciplines, linking together the faculty, students and administrators who focus on teaching and learning with technology.

Who Should Attend?
We encourage faculty, faculty developers, librarians, instructional technology professionals, researchers, and Provosts, Deans, etc., in all disciplines to participate as presenters and attendees.
