It’s the first day of the ELI 2012 Online Spring Focus Session. The Full Program Agenda promises several different perspectives:

  • Sensemaking – social cognitive processes (George Siemens, Associate Director, Technology Enhanced Knowledge Research Institute)
  • Course Design and Student Support Services (Byron R. Roush, Manager of Instructional Services, The Ohio State University)
  • Student Retention and Success (Russell Little, Manager, Web Systems, Sinclair Community College)
  • Effective Teaching Practices (John Fritz, AVP, Instructional Technology & New Media, University of Maryland, Baltimore County)
  • Strategic Decision-Making (Thomas Cavanagh, Charles D. Dziuban, University of Central Florida)
  • Ethics and Privacy Issues (John P. Campbell, AVP Information Technology Academic Technologies, Purdue University)
