2009 Canadian e-Learning Conference (CeLC)

The University of British Columbia - Vancouver, Canada

 June 17-19, 2009


The 7th Annual Canadian e-Learning Conference (CeLC) was held in Vancouver, BC June 17-19, 2009 at the University of British Columbia (UBC). UBC, in partnership with the BC Educational Technology Users Group (ETUG) and BCcampus, hosted over 300 delegates from BC, Canada and beyond at UBC's beautiful Point Grey campus. This year's CeLC program partners were UBC, ETUG and the Canadian Blackboard Users Group (Can-BUG). Delegates and sponsors tackled learning and teaching with technology questions focused within these four streams:

  • Open, connected & social - discover Personal Learning Environments (PLEs), new media and open education
  • Extending the CMS - consider how Web 2.0 tools, RSS and built-in APIs can extend the capabilities of the CMS
  • Learning and Teaching - reflect on how technology can enhance learning and teaching
  • Research - investigate how new technologies and teaching practices are altering the online or face-to-face classroom

We are in the process of collecting conference presentations. As we receive them, they will be uploaded here: http://celc.sites.olt.ubc.ca/conference-streams/.


Conference Feedback

We ask all 2009 CeLC delegates to take a moment to fill out a short evaluation form about the conference. Any feedback is highly valued and will help us organize a better conference next year.
