March 19, 2019
12:45 PM-1:45 PM
This mission of Distance/Flexible Education SIG is to provide a platform for dialogues regarding alternative and innovative teaching and learning opportunities from the traditional face-to-face classroom environment. Such alternative learning opportunities exist largely due to the rapid development of web-based technologies, including but not limited to course/learning management systems, open source software, social media, as well as various advanced multimedia technologies that offer synchronous and asynchronous, audio and visual, oral and written communications. Thanks to such technology affordances, we now have a wide range of flexibility and choices, from online to hybrid and to face-to-face, in order to obtain knowledge and communicate with our teachers, peers, and students anytime and anywhere, 24/7/365, and become true life-long learners. To facilitate the dialogues, we invite graduate students as well as faculty members to join us in research to explore and expand learning opportunities beyond imagination.
