A Blended Conference

For over 30 years, Common Ground has been invested in developing technologies that seek to break down barriers of access in scholarly communication. In each phase, we’ve built media platforms to support spaces for interdisciplinary dialogue, before such approaches were in vogue; connected international voices, when disciplines were too often isolated in national silos; and supported an agenda of access and equality, by offering pathways and opportunities for diverse voices.
We now propose another kind of intervention -- to build a scholarly communication infrastructure for a blended future.
Our blended model seeks to transcend physical boundaries by offering a platform to extend in-person conference content online, while ensuring online-only delegates are afforded equal participatory and experiential spaces within the platform. At the same time, the model offers participants a legacy resource to which they can return in the Event application, with access to a social space in our Community application where fellow participants can keep connected long after the conference ends.

Themes and Special Focus

The Inaugural Conference on Innovations in Law Enforcement Learning and Training Design and Delivery allows experts in the field to collaborate and form alliances as they share, analyze, and assess the training and learning environments and methods used in modern law enforcement. Each year the conference focuses on one main element of law enforcement training and learning to afford deep discussions about how best to train, teach, and lead the pedagogy of law enforcement training and learning. Collaborating with other law enforcement educators allows best practices to be shared and innovative approaches to be discussed. We welcome you to join the network of law enforcement educators who are guiding the field.
