June to December 2017, Edition #37
Prepared by Clayton R. Wright, May 2017
The 37th edition of the conference list covers selected professional development events that primarily focus on the use of technology in educational settings and on teaching, learning, and educational administration..
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. It would be advantageous to examine http://fakejournals.blogspot.ca/ or Jeffry Beale’s list of questionable publishers and organizations http://scholarlyoa.com/2012/12/06/bealls-list-of-predatory-publishers-2013/ so that you could consider whether you want to attend events sponsored by these organizations. Publications, such as Inside Higher Ed http://www.insidehighered.com/quicktakes/2013/10/30/new-scam-targets-scholars, http://ottawacitizen.com/technology/science/the-editor-is-late-fake-science-journals-hit-new-low and http://www.biomedcentral.com/1741-7015/13/230 have also pointed out the need for scholars to be on the lookout for scams. Take the time to conduct your own due diligence for any events you want to attend or submit a paper to.
All Web addresses were verified at the time of publication. No liability is assumed for any errors that may have been introduced inadvertently during the assembly of this FREE conference list. Kindly retain the contact information when you re-distribute the list or mount it on the web as that is how I receive updates. Prior to attending a conference, consider reading “How to Get the Most Out of a Conference” by Stephen Downes. The article is available from http://halfanhour.blogspot.ca/2011/11/how-to-get-most-out-of-conference.html. crw
