9th Annual Online Learning Institute

June 26, 2013

Grand Hyatt

San Antonio, TX


The Online Learning Institute Advisory Committee is currently seeking presentation proposals for roundtable discussions for the 9th Annual Online Learning Institute. The deadline for submitting proposals is Sunday, March 31, 2013.

To submit proposals to lead roundtable discussions on online and/or blended learning topics of your choice, please visit the Submit a Roundtable Proposal section of the Online Learning Institute website: We welcome proposals from educators at all different levels of experience in online and/or blended learning.

The 9th Annual Online Learning Institute, sponsored jointly by EdTech Leaders Online (ETLO), International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), International Association for K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL) and Southern Region Education Board (SREB), is on June 26, 2013 during the ISTE Conference in San Antonio, Texas. This unique, day-long, face-to-face event brings together online and blended learning practitioners and includes keynote and panel presentations, roundtable discussions, breakfast and lunch, and networking with online and blended learning practitioners from around the world!

The roundtable discussions are scheduled for an hour in length and are often a highlight the event. We hope you will consider submitting a roundtable proposal (or two!). Be sure to let us know on your proposal form the preferred time of day you would like to lead the roundtable discussion and if you are willing to offer the roundtable more than once.

Please contact me if you have any questions about submitting roundtable proposals. We’re looking forward to seeing you in San Antonio!
