We are living in an age that without the human ingenuity to innovate we will cease to exist. Human Specialization exemplifies the natural, but inevitable, evolution to innovate specifically for human needs and conditions. This cultural phenomenon is being enacted across business, manufacturing, science, technology and education industries through trends such as standardization, customization, personalization and specialization. This presentation examines some key findings from the entitled book and implications for the future of design and instructional designers. There will be plenty of time for Q and A. This session will be recorded.
Our next meeting, the annual retreat will take place on October 30, 2020.
More details to come.

This is written with deep sorrow and acknowledgement of the work that needs to be done to abolish racism, religious intolerance, sexism, heteronormativity, ableism, colonialism, and the prejudices and barriers that intersect at all people’s multiple identities. We do this in the aftermath of the systemic racism that caused the murder and burial of George Floyd. Today, Wednesday June 10, has been put forward as #ShutDownSTEM and #ShutDownAcademia. We at eLearning Consortium of Colorado are the T (Technology) in STEM. This day asks us, especially those who are not Black, to look at direct action that we can take.
We’re opening up a statement to our university and college members and we hope you contribute to it, if you wish. This is a working document. We ask that you send it out to others who are involved in teaching and technology. At the bottom of the statement, there are additional areas to share whatever you want. If you wish to read, comment, or contribute please do so today, Thursday, or Friday.

WWe plan to come up with a first draft on June 22 giving enough time to have everyone contribute if they want. We acknowledge that this will always be a work in progress and a one-time statement is not enough.

We are changed the conference format this year to a FREE virtual conference, April 15 - 17, 2020! We had some major changes this year that made it advantageous to move the conference style to virtual for this year while we complete our application with the IRS to achieve 501(3)c (Non-profit) status. Our goal is to be back in Breckenridge with our traditional face-to-face conference in 2021. So please consider joining us for our free virtual conference. We have so much share and collaborate with you and would love to see you virtually!
This year eLCC is a free online conference for all presenters and participants. Take a look at the tracks and especially the possible session formats and submit a proposal!
We published our first edition of The Liminal on September 2, 2019. Please share out – the theme was fake news. We especially have 3 great pedagogy articles on how to teach or interrogate fake news. We also started out with our first 3 books reviews including one by eLCC’s very own Molly Smith. We’d like to thank all the reviewers and editorial people from eLCC who made this issue happen – Sherry Jones, Chris Luchs, Donna Hall and Heather Tobin. We had a great group of reviewers on this issue – Ryan Lambert, Chase Hart, Tina Morrell, Kelly Zepp and Tameca Coleman!!!
Just a cool technology note – if you scroll down to the bottom of the page, you’ll see the map that shows you how many downloads and where in the world the downloads are happening. If you’d like to be involved in any way in our next issue (author, reviewer, art work, editorial help, etc.) – please email firstname.lastname@example.org
