The 2012 Sloan-C Online Education Research Symposium Series - Free
Sloan-C Online announces the 2012 Research Symposia, an online series of 4 virtual, interactive presentations on research of critical importance to educators engaged in advancing online and blended education. The symposia will familiarize participants with the current research in each of 4 areas via multiple perspectives and emerging trends. Participants can pursue particular aspects of the topics via focused discussions and questions to the presenters.
The symposia begins with an asynchronous two-week period for selected readings and activities. The two weeks prepare for the live, online meeting with panelists who will present the most important research and then engage in a conversation with participants. Panelists will support their perspectives with qualitative and quantitative evidence including institutional and pedagogical research. After the panel, activities will center on discussion forums and the development of special interest communities who may collaborate on developing publications, conference presentations, or grant proposals.
The symposia will be online and at no cost for participants. The panel presentation will be in Blackboard Collaborate and recorded for future viewing.
The registration and forum opens on January 16 for the first topic, " Exploring Quality in Online Education ."
