Many thanks to Billie Barnett, Tim Moore, and Leticia Starkov for inviting me to speak at their “Enriching Learning Environments Through Technology” one-day conference for instructors and others who are involved or interested in instructional technology and distance learning . Those three were the hosts at Elgin Community College for this very fun event that attracted about 100 registrants from 7 or 8 schools in the surrounding area.
I had the privilege of opening the day with a keynote address titled “Teaching with Technology: Myths and Realities.” A link to the slides is posted on my Resources page. I was experiencing a great deal of facilities envy as they held this keynote in the very beautiful auditorium shown below.
There were then two rounds of breakout sessions followed by lunch and two more rounds of breakouts to close the day. Xeturah Woodley from Central New Mexico Community College was the luncheon keynote speaker and she shared some excellent retention strategies for online instructors and staff.
