The Blended Learning in the Liberal Arts Conference is a forum for scholars and academics to present and share their practices, methods, experiences, and findings related to blended learning. We understand blended learning as any combination of online and face-to-face instruction that is intended to support, enhance, and develop high-impact learning experiences that embody the values of a liberal arts education. 

Please visit for more information and to submit a proposal (link at bottom of webpage)

We invite proposals on topics including, but not limited to: 

  • Digital competencies, digital citizenship, and digital wellness
  • Experiential and service learning 
  • Blended learning spaces, libraries and resource centers 
  • Critical making 
  • Emerging technologies 
  • Task-based tech-mediated learning 
  • Assistive technology and accessibility 
  • Blended learning beyond the single course 
  • Diversity, equity, and inclusion in blended experiences 

Proposals that include critical perspectives on these topics, promote blended learning beyond single courses, and stimulate discussion about digital culture resistance are particularly welcome. 

General Guidelines 

Most presenters at BlendedLAC are faculty and academic professionals from and beyond liberal arts colleges. In addition, we also seek presentations that promote student voices, including projects in which students are key collaborators, or that encourage students as knowers. 

Proposals must be in one of four formats, including presentations, panels, workshops, and lightning round presentations. We will review all submissions based on their relevance, pedagogical soundness, and presentational outlook.

Accepted speakers will be notified by February 28, 2020.
