National Distance Learning Week 2017
The United States Distance Learning Association annually sponsors a week-long celebration of distance learning students and the faculty who teach them. UIS has planned events to celebrate our students who take online and blended courses. You are an important part of our UIS identity!
Presenters: Dr. Susan Aldridge, President Drexel University Online and Marci Powell, USDLA Chair Emerita and Vice Chair for Global Partnerships
As educators, we know we must embrace emerging technologies and pedagogies in our designs for online, open and flexible teaching and learning. What are these and how are they being applied? In this webinar, we will look at 10 disruptive technologies and innovative approaches educators around the world are taking in applying them. From a shoestring budget to high end applications, see these tools in action, while exploring how they are rapidly reshaping the landscape of distance education in the digital age. Feel free to bring your lunch.
