Are you interested in presenting at TLC Asia?

Call for Paper is now open! Deadline for submissions is 21 June 2019. If your paper is accepted, you will be informed by 26th June.

Presenting at TLC Asia 2019 is a chance for you to have a voice amongst your peers. Whether you’re experienced or brand new to presenting, planning to share challenges from the past or opportunities for the future, joining us from Singapore, Philippines, Malaysia, Hong Kong or anywhere in Asia, we want to hear what you have to say.

We invite presentations from users of all our Teaching & Learning solutions, including Learn, Collaborate and Open LMS, to submit abstracts and attend the event. We hope to bring together pedagogically great ideas behind teaching and learning technologies where the community can learn from the ways other institutions have implemented their strategies, whichever the platform.

This year, we are looking for presentations that fit within these five core challenges:

1. Accessibility and Inclusivity
Creating inclusive learning experiences for all students is key to improving the student experience by helping them take clear control of course content with usability, accessibility and quality in mind.

2. Educational Integrity
Institutions are striving to maintain high academic standards, rigor, and brand reputation as well as promoting academic honour. As online programs, multi-institution students and credentialing become common, institutions must focus more energy on accreditation and brand reputation.

3. Educator Empowerment
As online program and larger class sizes proliferate, institutions struggle to maintain quality and consistency of their instruction Enabling consistency, quality, and creativity in instruction is key.

4. Student Success
As performance-based funding, competition and student expectations increase, institutions need to show their value by defining and measuring the academic and career outcomes they provide to students.

5. Student Retention
Understanding and satisfying student needs – As non-traditional students, competition and performance-based funding grow, institutions must better understand and satisfy student needs.
