Wednesday December 2 – Thursday December 3, 2020
Welcome to IFWE 2020:
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, USDLA and the IFWE team have made the tough decision to postpone this year’s face-to-face event. The good news is we will still gather virtually on December 2nd and 3rd for an abbreviated version called —
IFWE – ONLINE AND UNMASKED! (and FREE!)
Thinking about how masks have become a natural part of leaving our homes, IFWE UNMASKED allows you to shed that mask while sharing quality time with your IFWE friends and colleagues. In the tradition of IFWE, sessions will include eLearning topics as well as sessions to inspire us to be healthy and productive. And of course, what would IFWE be without a little fun? Get ready for speed networking, the IFWE Happy Hour, IFWE Book Club, and other surprises! The best news of all? IFWE Unmasked! is FREE (but you must still register)!!!
Although virtual, this year’s high-profile leadership forum promises to deliver an agenda that will reach out to the needs of women across multiple e-learning disciplines. The event targets women in the field who are currently in leadership roles, as well as those women who are on the rise in their careers. Attendees include professionals from K-12, higher and continuing education, and corporate, government and military training, as well as from Telehealth and distance learning consultant organizations.
IFWE’s vision includes addressing issues such as changing leadership roles, the quality of deliverables in the workplace, the pace of technology innovation, the future of the global education and training marketplace, the cultural integration of distance learning and e-learning, employment and other options for the future.
What is IFWE?
IFWE is the International Forum for Women in E-Learning, recognizing the role of women leaders in the field. Launched by USDLA in 2004, IFWE includes open discussions, shared ideas, and a number of presentations involving conversations that include audience participation. It is designed to tap into resources that include mentorships, eLearning programs and products, and an opportunity to learn from experts in our profession about relevant topics. In addition, attendees gain a better understanding of how to be a successful leader, up-and-coming leader, or support person in distance and online learning. Whether you are from K-12, higher education, corporate, military, government, or Telehealth, IFWE welcomes you!
