Celebrate Distance Learning!
The Center for eLearning team did a great job at the Celebrate Distance Learning Conference that was sponsored by Florida Distance Learning Association 2015. Mario Toussaint and Dr. Vicki Brown presented Digital Game-Based Learning Design for Optimum Student Engagement in Mathematics and Science. That presentation was followed with Building with Care: How CBAM Enhances Instructional Design by Allyson Hall. Dr. Judy Sommers presented Blend & Flex: Engaging Effective Faculty Interaction. Dr. Vicki Brown also led a panel on the value of FDLA Membership and USDLA Affiliation. The experience was a good one with the team members learning about distance learning initiatives at K12 and the postsecondary institutions. Congratulations on a job well done!
