New at the Chicago eLearning & Technology Showcase in 2022

The eLearning Showcase returns after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic. This popular, in-person event will take place at Northern Illinois University’s Naperville campus on Tuesday, August 23. You’ll choose from four conference tracks and have new opportunities to network with Special Interest Groups (SIGs).

Structured networking opportunities have been added to this year’s event in response to attendee feedback about the conference. We are pleased to offer an entire time block devoted to SIGs, with networking activities led by industry professionals. You’ll have an opportunity to gain new insights and share what you know with fellow professionals in your field. SIGs for five topics are available: The Learning Technologies Landscape, Accessibility, Gamification, Freelancing, and xAPI.
