Congratulations to Dr. Binu Pundir for receiving the award for Innovative Leader in Distance Learning Higher Education. The award was presented at the Florida Distance Learning Association annual conference “Celebrate Distance Learning: Develop! Collaborate! Lead!”. She received the award because of her innovative use of technology within her courses in support of student learning. The teaching tool SKIES is a teaching and collaboration tool was incorporated into her classes.

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!
