There is still time to submit a proposal for the 2013 ELD Conference and we
have some very exciting news to add to an already exciting conference

*The new submission deadline is March 17, 2013* and the reason we've
extended the window to submit is because *select proceeding* from the
conference *will be published in the new Journal of Emerging Learning
Design (ELDJ)*.  This is not to say that all presentations will or are
expected to appear in the ELDJ, or that consideration for ELDJ is a
requirement of submission.  But for those who are interested, publication
in this peer-reviewed journal is going to be an option.  Details on the
ELDJ appear at the bottom of this notice.  *The paper for the proceeding is
NOT due at the time of submission for the call for proposals.
 Presentations at the conference will be reviewed by the Journal of
Emerging Learning Design Editorial Board and invitations to appear in the
proceedings will be issued not long afterward.  Papers for accepted
invitations would be due late summer/early fall 2013.*

2013 Conference Theme – Learning As Disruption
The mission of the Emerging Learning Design Conference is to showcase best
practices in design and implementation by bringing together those
interested in engaging in a vibrant and dynamic discourse regarding
pedagogy and how technology can better enhance it.

The 2013 conference will take place on the campus of Montclair State
University.  MSU is located in northern New Jersey, 14 miles west of
Manhattan and is easily accessible by car, bus, or train.

As part of our rolling acceptance method of creating the conference

*The Journal of Emerging Learning Design
*The *Journal of Emerging Learning Design (ELDJ) *is an open access,
peer-reviewed, online journal that provides a platform for academics and
practitioners to explore emerging learning design theories, concepts, and
issues and their implications at national and international levels.

An outgrowth of the annual Emerging Learning Design
which makes its home at Montclair State University (MSU), The ELDJ invites
scholarly communication in the emerging learning design field and will
present best practices in design and implementation by offering articles
that present, propose, or review engaging and dynamic approaches to
pedagogy and how technology can better enhance it.

The inaugural issue is planned for March 22nd, 2013.  The issue including
the proceedings from the Emerging Learning Design 2013 conference is
anticipated for early 2014.
