Hello OSP Community!

See below for Alan Regan's message to the pedagogy list about the extension of the proposal deadline for the 2012 Jasig-Sakai Conference. We now have until March 23, 2012, to submit proposals.

I have submitted four proposals on behalf of the OSP community. They are as follows:

A Showcase of Open Source Portfolio Implementations - Traditionally held as a three-hour workshop on the morning of the pre-conference day
Customizing the Open Source Portfolio Tools in Sakai - Traditionally held as a three-hour workshop on the afternoon of the pre-conference day
The Open Source Portfolio Tools in Sakai  - Tech Demo
Current and Future Portfolio Innovations in Sakai - Traditionally presented as a one-hour panel during the conference

If any or all of the above proposals for sessions are accepted, I will be recruiting presenters from the OSP Community. Please let me know if you are interested in joining our community presentations.

Dear Using Sakai List and Pedagogy List,

We received a number of requests to extend the deadline for the call for proposals for this summer's conference.  Some were knee-deep in QA, some out of the country, others on spring break or simply behind the eight ball at work.  To help out, the deadline has been extended until this Friday.

FYI, Pepperdine will be bringing five faculty to the conference this year.  Since 2009 the IT department has sponsored the conference fees, hotel, and travel to bring several faculty to the conference.  It's been an excellent way to engage with our faculty with ed tech, help them learn about the growth of the Sakai platform (and voice their needs directly to the developers!), and seek their leadership and guidance with our university and IT strategic initiatives.

Anyway… if you were considering a proposal but ran out of time -- the door is open again!  Send in those proposals.  Scroll down to see the official notice and the link to submit.  Thanks, everyone!

So, by popular demand and to ensure a good balance of presentations, we are extending the deadline until Friday, March 23.

We want to hear your new ideas, see your great work, and learn from your successes.  What are you waiting for?  Get your proposals in!
