Conference Overview: Many institutions are using Blended or Hybrid Learning as a way to meet enrollment demands, provide more flexible learning options to students, and explore online learning environments. As the need for flexibility increases exponentially, new solutions and effective practices must be created to accommodate diminishing resources and enhanced learning for this ‘merged’ learning environment. The eMerge Conference is Northeast Ohio’s first conference specifically aimed at bringing higher education faculty and professionals together to address challenges, discuss innovations, and share strategies for teaching and learning in blended learning. Register Now! Attendees must register for the eMerge 2012: New Directions in Blended Learning Conference before selecting the individual breakout sessions, due to seating capacity.
