The Office of Distance Education and e-Learning in The Centers for Excellence in Teaching and Learning at Alabama A&M University is hosting a full day mini-conference entitled "An Intro to e-Learning: A Faculty Perspective" with keynote speaker Dr. David Currie. Dr. Currie is the assistant director of e-Learning and director of Digital Media Services at East Tennessee State University. A faculty member in the Department of Public Health when the Internet went public, Dr. Currie embraced the new technologies as opportunities to both expand the reach of higher education as well as enhance the pedagogical quality of curriculum design for maximum effectiveness with a wider diversity of learners. It was in his Faculty Technology Leadership course that I first learned of Bloom's Digital Taxonomy, which provides the curricular infrastructure for all online courses. He will be discussing Bloom's Digital Taxonomy and the Seven Principles of Instructional Design in more depth at the mini-conference. AAMU faculty should watch for a registration email within coming days!
The event will take place at the Drake Learning Resource Center and will run from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Friday, September 30. We hope to see you there!
