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.

Jane Wilde is a passionate gamer, learner, teacher and flat water kayaker.

A veteran teacher of 30 years, Jane has taught in special and general education at every grade k-12. For the past 8 years her attention has been directed to teacher training and professional development. She describes her own teaching and the workshops/courses she offers as "always in a state of becoming." Excited by the intersection of technology and cognitive theory, Jane is exploring how to learn deeply through virtually authentic experience.

She is on the faculty of Marlboro College Graduate School where she teaches courses in educational technology and pedagogy. Her favorite course is called Teaching and Learning in Virtual Worlds. She also teaches instructional design courses at SUNY Albany where she is pursuing a doctoral degree. Though her gaming, research and online teaching have her behind a screen several hours each day, she finds the time to visit area ponds and lakes with her bright yellow kayak.
