Online learning environments are quickly becoming integrated into many departments’ offerings. Dr. Julia Felton and Dr. Aditi Vijay from the Department of Psychology will discuss strategies, tips, tricks, and lessons learned from creating an entirely online Master’s program using Adobe Connect. Drs. Felton and Vijay will argue for the importance of including synchronous learning experiences in online education and talk about best practices for incorporating these tools effectively.
This is a great opportunity for instructors to bring their ideas and questions to an open forum where we can discuss and learn from each other.
These events are open for all faculty and staff who enjoy participating in lively discussions and acquiring new skills and ideas. No registration is required for any of the events. Light refreshments will be provided for Tea Time Tech Talks and Faculty Brown Bag Discussions.
