The 18th annual Sloan Consortium International Conference on Online Learning will take place from October 10-12 in Orlando, Florida. Biggio Center team members Dr. Raj Chaudhury and Betsy Gilbertson, along with David King from Auburn University and Amanda Major from Alabama State University (and former intern at the Biggio Center) authored “An Integrated Science Course Moves Online: Four Concurrent Perspectives.” Their findings demonstrate the challenges and successes associated with moving a core science course from a traditional classroom setting to an online setting at a large, research university.
Amanda Major, assisted by Dr. Raj Chaudhury, will lead the presentation at the Sloan Consortium. They will discuss the resources available to universities to bring courses online, how to effectively collaborate with faculty members whose courses are transitioning to an online model, and personal narratives about how these transitions have happened in the past. Their presentation will be interactive and will involve audience participation and partner work.
The Sloan Consortium hosts three annual conferences: International Conference on Online Learning, Emerging Technologies for Online Learning, and Blended Learning Conference & Workshop. The Sloan Consortium is a community of members committed to promoting and perfecting online learning through webinars, workshops, publications, and conferences.
