The 13th Colorado Learning and Teaching With Technology (COLTT) conference is set for Aug. 11 and 12 on the University of Colorado at Boulder campus. A call for proposals is under way, with a deadline of April 23.

The systemwide event offers professional development for those in education and related fields who are interested in the latest innovations, current research, hands-on technology workshops and more sessions that explore learning, teaching and technology. Besides members of the CU community, secondary and post-secondary educators are invited to take part in the regional conference.

"This is an excellent opportunity to share your research and skills with a broad cross-section of your colleagues and associates from across the campus, the CU system, the state of Colorado and beyond," said Stein Sture, interim provost and executive vice chancellor for academic affairs.

The Program Committee for COLTT 2010 is soliciting proposals for conference presentations. The committee looks for sessions that will:

  • influence participants' teaching and work
  • encourage participants to think differently about educational technologies
  • give participants the opportunity to reflect on their teaching practices
  • provide learning opportunities about trends in educational technology use and research

Possible sessions include hands-on workshops, research presentations, panel discussions, exhibitor demonstrations, round-robin and poster discussions.

The complete call for proposals is available online at

This COLTT conference is sponsored by the interim provost and executive vice chancellor for academic affairs, the ATLAS Institute, ASSETT and ITS at CU-Boulder.

Early registration will begin later this month.
