    Communicating Algebra Remotely: Problem Solved!
    Presenter: 
    Michael Eiseman, Creator of Algebra By Hand(TM), 2017 USDLA Innovation Award Winner

    There are many interactive distance learning tools for reading and writing because text editors have long been a mainstay of internet communication.  This is not the case for mathematical equations. Until now, remote assessment for algebra has been limited to multiple choice or fill-in-the-blank responses that give teachers little insight into their students’ thought processes. New tools empower teachers to dynamically create, present and manipulate equations before their remote students’ eyes.  This technology promises to arm students with advanced procedural fluency for algebraic problem solving while saving teachers hours of time.  Analytics from automated problem grading give teachers much richer feedback that form the basis for better differentiated teaching.  This session will describe and demonstrate this exciting new development in distance learning for algebra.

    The Often-Overlooked eLearning Strategic Plan – Don’t Have One? You Should.
    Presenters: Darcy W Hardy, PhD , Associate Vice President, Enterprise Consulting, Blackboard Inc.
    Jeff Rabey, PhD, Principal Strategist, Enterprise Consulting, Blackboard Inc.
    Scott Ready, Principal Strategist, Accessibility, Enterprise Consulting, Blackboard Inc.

    To ensure the long-term success of an eLearning program (blended, hybrid, fully online), colleges and universities need an eLearning strategic plan for growing online programs sustainably and at scale. An institution must consider and develop its goals, vision, organization, governance, policies and procedures, as well as accessibility planning around eLearning. When these areas are not at the core of the eLearning programming, the institution risks any competitive advantage in the eLearning space. Institutions often jump into developing courses and marketing programs when the campus is not organized efficiently, and the overall program has not been operationalized. Skipping strategic planning can cost the institution unexpected expenses and personnel resources. This webinar will address the components of an eLearning strategic plan and how it is critical to the success of the eLearning program.

    Applying Brain Science for Online Learning: A Case Study


    Presenters:

    Terri Gaffney, Vice President, Product Development, American Nurses Association

    Sarah Nicholl, Customer Success Director​, D2L
    Description:

    We have talked a lot about advances in brain science, and how it can be applied to online learning. We know the brain is not wired to sit passively and absorb information, and when learners are actively engaged – learning improves. But how do you apply brain science theories in the real world?

    Join us for this interactive session to hear how the ANA leveraged brain science to engage their audience. D2L’s Sarah Nicholl, and ANA’s Terri Gaffney will discuss:

    • A refresher on behavioral economics and learning design
    • Practical tips on how to design for both storage and retrieval learning
    • How ANA is leveraging these brain science techniques in Brightspace to drive learner engagement​

    How Kenai Borough Schools in Alaska Are Using Video-Enabled Learning Spaces
    Presented by: Natalie Marlow and Ashlyn Branning (Students, Kenai Peninsula Borough School District)

     In this webinar see yourself using live video telecommunications (VTC) to explore bringing the world into your classroom.  Using interactive video conferencing as a tool to deliver instruction or enrich curriculum broadens student access to content while increasing the depth and relevance of their learning experience.  Not only are students more actively engaged but also a variety of learning styles are readily accommodated.  Experience how VTC is becoming an accepted way of life for both teachers and students.

    Learn how to implement strong technology as part of the instructional strategy in a learner-centered environment.  See firsthand how it can positively impact teaching and learning in your school.  Examples, best practices, and content resources will be shown.

    Join this live session as Alaska students, along with their teachers, reflect on how they have successfully implemented interactive videoconferencing connections to capture andexplore new curriculum experiences.

    Applying Brain Science in Online Learning Design – A Practical Approach

    We’ve heard about advances in brain science and how they can apply to learning but how do we put this into practice? And how can it be used in courses online? What exactly do we mean by brain science anyway? Join us to hear practical examples that you can apply in your programs. During this introductory session, we’ll review current research on brain science from fields such as cognitive psychology and neuroscience; and we’ll examine how the findings apply to online learning design.

    Key takeaways include:

    • View learners as investors – applying behavioral economics to learning design and behavior
    • How your brain works on learning – practical tips to design for both storage and retrieval learning
    • Resources and tools to learn more and apply the content in your learning programs

    Inside Higher Ed

    Flipping the Classroom and Other Techniques to Improve Teaching

    "Flipping the classroom" is an idea that has arrived in full force in higher education, and is part of broader movements as well. The basic idea is to move away from using class time for lecturing, and to instead provide that information in video form so students can review it ahead of time. This makes it possible to use class time engaged in truly active learning.

    And of course there are many other ways to promote active learning in the classroom. These days even research universities not historically known to focus on teaching are pushing new efforts to promote active learning – and these efforts appear to be working.

    This webcast will explore some of the many ways colleges are promoting flipped classrooms and other innovations in teaching. 

    ​Join Inside Higher Ed editors Scott Jaschik and Doug Lederman for a lively discussion on these topics Thursday, December 7 at 2:00 PM ET.
