The theme of the conference is "Reality Learning," and we encourage the submission of proposals and papers that address this topic. The Conference will also stress the application of learning and motivation research and theory, in addition to applications of technology to higher education learning. Emphasis is on research and practice in teaching and learning with a focus on uses of innovative learning strategies and the Internet in face-to-face, blended, and online course development and instruction. We are especially interested in proposals combining innovative learning strategies, such as constructivist, immersive, and cooperative learning, as well as learning communities that use Web and advanced technologies.
