I am not sure if any of these topics might be of interest, but maybe they might help you brainstorm topics that will be useful to your audience.

Using web 2.0 tools in instruction? (xtranormal video, devolver video, glogster, comix.com, animoto, dropbox, voki, voicethread)?
Using a virtual classroom such as Moodle?
Research based learning?
Assessment that takes into account multiple intelligences?(Example:  making a quilt or mask as an assessement instead of writing a report)?

At my school at the moment we are moving towards an Open Learning Plan.  What is that?  The walls have come down in the classrooms and all the teachers and students in an area work together.  Many schools in Australia are now working towards that goal...not sure how it will work but so far so good in other schools!

This just in from my e-mail:

Hi Everyone,

Ray Schroeder at The Center for Online Learning, Research and Service at the University of Illinois Springfield alerted me to a Massive Open Online Class (MOOC) on “Online Learning Today...and Tomorrow.”  (See article in the Chronicle of Higher Education.)

The course is free, based on OERs and will being on 27 June 2011.  A great opportunity to share thoughts and ideas and contemplate the future of online learning with hundreds of educators worldwide.  There is also an impressive line up of panellists.

It may offer more ideas, if you need any more.
