Faculty Development in Blended and Online Learning
|Event Date/Time: Mar 07, 2011||End Date/Time: Mar 09, 2011|
Providing faculty with the structure they need to successfully make the transition to online teaching requires a shift in the understanding of technology, a comprehension of the new online and blended teaching environment, and effective administrative support.
Join us to explore the best approaches for engaging and supporting faculty interested in the online and blended teaching environment. This interactive workshop will address the areas of professional development essential to the preparation of instructors for online teaching and learning success. Each participant will return to campus with a relevant framework that covers their key concerns and action steps.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This interactive conference is designed specifically for faculty development professionals, instructional technologists, and academic leaders who are responsible for effectively developing faculty to teach online and blended courses.
A TEAM APPROACH
You will develop action plans specific to the needs of your own institutions. Institutions are encouraged to bring academic leaders, faculty development professionals, and instructional technologists who can formulate a framework integrated with rich resources needed to significantly develop faculty who teach online and blended courses.
WHAT TO BRING
You are required to bring a laptop computer with wireless capability. You will be actively engaged in using social networking tools and will be asked to post and interact with other participants through various social networking sites. This will provide a hands-on understanding of how to effectively use some of these social networking tools and contribute to the available resources.
Conference proceedings will be delivered to you on a flash drive rather than in a binder.
