Blended Learning Course Design: A Boot Camp for Instructors | Faculty Focus

MARCH 23-24, 2013 | ATLANTA, GA
Blended Learning Course Design 

Blended courses combine the best pedagogical practices of two teaching methods—online and face-to-face instruction.
If you have considered converting a traditional course into a blended course, you have probably asked, “What should happen before, during, and after class?” It is an important question to consider because your answer will determine how you spend class time, how students are introduced to course content, and what opportunities they will have to work with new ideas and information.

The North American Council for Staff, Program, and Organizational Development | An Affiliate AACC Council

The North American Council for Staff, Program and Organizational Development (NCSPOD) was formed in 1977 with assistance from the Fund for the Improvement of Post-Secondary Education  and is an affiliate council of the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC). The vision for the organization came from faculty, staff, and program development practitioners in community colleges across the country. They had a mutual need for developing their knowledge and skills for sharing information and experiences in a developing field. They felt this could best happen through a formal network as an association would give credibility to the staff, program, and the organizational development movement. join_ncspod
Our mission is to sustain an international community of engaged professionals by sharing expertise and resources to advance faculty, staff and organizational effectiveness. NCSPOD, Inc. is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors established through an approved set of organizational by-laws.  Our activities and programs are broadly focused upon staff, faculty, program, and organizational development within higher education and especially within community colleges. However, our doors are open to anyone who shares our passion and identifies with our mission. Our values include authentic relationships, community and networking, collaboration, excellence and effectiveness, and inclusion.

5th Annual Teaching & Learning Colloquium

5th Annual Teaching & Learning Colloquium 

Friday, April 12, 2013
8:30 am - 4:30 pm

Keynote Speakers 

Dr. Tracy Penny Light

Documenting the Self: 
Integrating Learning with ePortfolios

Dr. Vijay Kumar

Open Education on the Move: 
New Pathways for Learning

Stony Brook's 5th annual Teaching and Learning Colloquium promises to be a day of innovative interaction on the future of education. In A New Paradigm for Undergraduate Education, Barr and Tagg (1995) described a paradigm shift in education from teacher-centered instruction to student-centered learning.  This concept is still relevant almost 20 years later as technology has become integral to the teaching and learning process, forcing us to ask ourselves: Is the Learning Paradigm experiencing its own shift?  How prepared are we to teach in this age of digital global learning? 

Join us for a day of innovative exchange and conversation, from MOOCs to ePortfolios to innovative teaching and learning strategies with technology. You are invited to participate in the day's interactive sessions, where your input and ideas will be vital to how we map the future of teaching and learning.

Faculty development is crucial for institutions which are becoming more student-centered and need to be more accountable to the public. As a career, it is rewarding and exciting. And yet, most people in the field entered it without proper training or a qualifying degree and have faced a steep learning curve when they were starting out.
