Oakland Room in the Oakland Center at Oakland University
The growth in online programming continues to expand in higher education, motivated primarily by students seeking convenient degree options and by institutions looking to expand their reach. While this expansion has undoubtedly made higher education more accessible than ever before, many question whether the quality of online education is on par with more traditional methods of education.
This one-day conference will explore various ways technology is being used to improve course quality. The three presentation tracks are Effective Teaching with Technology (Track 1), Quality Conversion to Online (Track 2) and Mobile Technology (Track 3).
This year's keynote speaker is Elliot Soloway, Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at University of Michigan. Dr. Soloway will discuss the benefits of mobile technologies, how they enable new pedagogical practices and increase student performance.
