DLAC 2019 Attendees – Call for Proposals!

A call from this US-based K-12 distance, online, and blended learning conference.

View this email in your browser

Call for Proposals for
DLAC 2020 now open!

Thank you for attending and supporting the inaugural Digital Learning Annual Conference (DLAC) event last April. We hope you found DLAC’s innovative format and the expertise of the attendees as valuable and inspiring as we did.

The Call for Proposals for DLAC 2020 in Austin, February 24-26 is open, and we encourage you to submit your ideas for sessions. As you know from DLAC 2019, this program is unlike the typical education conference. The variety of session types and time allotted to sessions will vary considerably, with an emphasis on shorter, more interactive discussions instead of longer, sit-and-get presentations. Sessions range from very short presentations (6 minutes) to debates that might be as long as 90 minutes, with many options in between. There is a format for practically any session you would like to lead.

Contributed talks
Panel discussions and debates
Table talks
PechaKucha talks
Coffee talks

For details about the DLAC proposal submissions and presentation format, please follow this link to our website.

As a DLAC 2019 attendee, we would like to offer you a priority code for your proposal submission. Please use the code below when submitting your proposal to be sure we know it’s from an attendee of the 2019 conference.

Priority code: inauguraldlac

Submit Your Proposal
If you have questions regarding the Call for Proposals, please contact Allison Powell, Program Committee Chair, at

See you in Austin!
