Instructional Design and Technology, Educational Technology, Distance Education & Online Learning Conferences June to December 2015

Clayton R. Wright, crwr77 at, created the 33rd edition of his “Educational Technology and Education Conferences.” I find this list extremely helpful each year. I have shortened the list — focusing on a select number of conferences that interest me each month (these tend to focus specifcially on topics or areas of interest to my teaching and scholarship). Please refer to the original list  as well as each conferences website for specifics on each conference.
