Educational Technology and Education Conferences for December 2019 to June 2020 , Edition # 42 Prepared by Clayton R. Wright, crwr77 at gmail.com, November 8, 2019 The 42 nd edition of the conference list covers selected professional development opportunities that primarily focus on the use of technology in educational settings and on teaching, learning, and educational administration. Only listings until June 2020 are most complete as dates, locations, or Internet addresses (URLs) were not available for a number of events held after that date. In order to protect the privacy of individuals, only URLs are used in the listing as this enables readers of the list to obtain event information without submitting their e-mail addresses. A significant challenge during the assembly of this list is incomplete or conflicting information on websites and the lack of a link between conference websites from one year to the next . An explanation for the content and format of the list can be found at - distribute-documents-in-ms-word-or-openoffice-for-an-international-audience/ . A Word or an OpenOffice format is used to enable people with limited or high-cost Internet access to find a conference that is congruent with their interests or obtain conference abstracts or proceedings. Consider using the “Find” tool under Microsoft Word’s “Edit” tab or similar tab in OpenOffice to locate the name of a particular conference, association, city, or country. If you enter the country “Australia” or place, such as “Hong Kong” in the “Find” tool, all conferences that occur in Australia or Hong Kong will be highlighted. Or, enter the word “research” or “assessment”. (Note that key words such as “research”, “assessment” or “MOOCs” may not be present in the conference title, yet these topics could be discussed during a particular conference.) Then, “cut and paste” a list of suitable events for your colleagues. Please note that events, dates, titles, and locations may change and some events may be cancelled . Thus, CHECK the specific conference website not only for basic information, but to assure yourself that the conference is legitimate . Just as there is an increasing number of predatory or fake journals , there is also an increase in the number of conferences that are not quality-focused. C heck your “gut” – if it doesn’t feel quite right, perhaps more checking is in order. Take the time to conduct your own due diligence for any events you want to attend or submit a paper to. To garner the most from a conference, this article by Amy Strage may be helpful: The Conference Notebook . You may also find this article useful: How to Facilitate a Conference Session by Garrett Richards.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
