Planning and Growing Online Learning Initiatives
Venue: Loews Coronado Bay
|Event Date/Time: Jun 15, 2011||End Date/Time: Jun 17, 2011|
Many institutions wanting to improve student access and increase degree completion rates are looking to online programs and courses as a way to meet these objectives. Most, however, are developing online programs with little or no strategic planning and without proper alignment to institutional mission and goals, all of which may result in limited success or even failure.
Join three leading experts who have directly managed the academic planning, development, and growth of online programs at six different institutions. They will provide strategies and insights from their collective experience that will be of value to members of universities and colleges just starting online learning at their institutions as well as others seeking to expand existing online efforts.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Mid- and senior-level academic administrators in the early stages of developing or growing online programs. We encourage you to bring members of your academic programs planning team.
The conference is structured to balance information sharing, targeted learning activities, group work, and collaboration with colleagues. Through the use of case studies and collaborative work, you will be able to directly apply the knowledge that you have gained during the conference with guidance from the instructors. You will leave this conference with a working plan that you can immediately use at your institution.
WHAT TO BRING
As conference proceedings will be delivered to you on a flash drive rather than in a binder, it is suggested that you bring a laptop with wireless capability.
