TCC 2010 invites faculty, support staff, librarians, counselors, student affairs professionals, students, administrators, and educational consultants to submit proposals for papers and general sessions.

Since the first TCC Online Conference, the Internet has evolved into a global workspace for communication, collaboration, and community. People, technologies, services, and perspectives have converged on a single platform.

  • The Internet has changed the teaching profession. How do faculty communicate, collaborate, innovate to produce useful student learning outcomes that differ from past outcomes?
  • College students place high priority on using mobile smart phones and engaging online social communities daily. What can we learn from our students? How do we build on our students' expertise in digital media, personal publishing, and social networking?
  • Web 2.0 will continue to evolve. What effective practices have emerged in online learning? How do we assess student learning? How will smart mobile devices be adapted for learning? What is the institutional affect of virtual worlds such as Second Life?


TCC invites papers and general sessions on the continuing progress of distance learning, virtual communities, collaborative learning, social networking, and best choices for instructional technologies such as:

  • Retrospectives and personal experiences with the evolution of learning technologies
  • Perspectives and applications of Web 2.0 tools for teaching and learning
  • Technology applications that facilitate communication, collaboration, sharing, and social networking
  • Building and sustaining learning communities
  • Instructional applications in virtual worlds (Second Life, etc.)
  • Distance learning including mobile learning
  • Ubiquitous and lifelong learning
  • Open content and open source
  • E-portfolios and other assessment tools
  • Student orientation and preparation
  • Student success and assessment strategies in online learning
  • Student services online (tutoring, advising, mentoring, career planning, technology support, help desk, etc.)
  • Online learning resources (library, learning centers, etc.)
  • Online, hybrid, blended or other modes of technology enhanced learning
  • Professional development for faculty and staff
  • Accessibility for seniors and persons with disabilities
  • Gender equity, digital divide, intercultural understanding, and open access
  • Managing information technology and change in educational institutions
  • Institutional planning and pedagogy catalyzed by technology advances
  • Global learning, ubiquitous learning, and intercultural communication
  • The status of educational technology around the world
  • Other topics related to online learning and the application of educational technologies
