Best Practices Conference Call for Presenters, Deadline Approaching
Over the past year new terminology and matured technologies have emerged in the Distance Education field. We were introduced to MOOC’s (Massive Open Online Courses), we witnessed enhanced collaborative software, dynamic digital repositories, and shrinking mobile devices capable of doing online course work. There have also been enhancements to assessment models along with different learning analytics and lastly some of us flipped our classrooms.
We would like to have Pace faculty present on what new or enhanced pedagogies they are incorporating into their teaching and that embrace the changing dynamics. Please submit a short overview of what you would like to present and in the overview please demonstrate that your session will be interactive. Groups of faculty can present as a panel. Please send your proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, February 15, 2013.
We have invited Dr. Anthony G. Picciano, Professor and Executive Officer, PhD Program in Urban Education- City University of New York to provide a keynote address. In the morning he will be speaking on “Blended Learning Meets MOOCs: Education’s Digital Future.” Dr. Picciano has published a number of works on Blended Learning. We are hoping to have the morning keynote sessions videoconferenced to the New York City Campus.
