NWeLearn 2019 has ended
Welcome to NWeLearn 2019! We are excited about his annual event. Here is some housekeeping information to navigate the event:
  • The conference is hosted in the Convention Center, a separate building next to the Riverhouse Hotel. You can walk there from the hotel by taking one of the paths that go under MT Washington Drive or drive directly there.
  • The Convention Center has two levels. Meals and main sessions will be held in the lower level and the breakout sessions will be held in the main or 1st floor.
  • Restrooms are in the 1st Floor across from Cascadia B.
  • The Thursday night, Networking & Hors D’oeuvres, will be held right after the last Thursday breakout session in the main entrance space by the fireplace on the 1st floor.
Feel free to ask any questions, post your experiences in the Slack Community site, nwelearn.slack.com, and upload your pictures to the NWeLearn Conference 2019 Google Photos site.

Meghan Naxer is an Instructional Design Specialist at Oregon State University's Ecampus. Prior experience includes five years of instructional design and online teaching experience at Kent State University and the University of Oregon. Before joining the Ecampus team, I was an assistant professor of music theory and lead faculty developer and coordinator for the music analysis course in the Online Master of Music in Music Education Program at Kent State University. I first became interested in instructional design eight years ago when I was part of the original development team for this course. I hold a PhD in music theory from the University of Oregon and an MA and MM from Kent State University in music theory and flute performance. My dissertation, “Malleable Mindsets: Rethinking Instructional Design in Undergraduate Music Theory,” developed new theoretical models of motivation for instructional designs in that field. My research interests include pedagogy, educational psychology, and video game design. I am excited to collaborate with faculty and the Ecampus team to create exciting learning environments for the students at OSU.
