Apr: The Online Learner: Sinking or Swimming? (WebJunction)
3 (12-1 pm Mountain)
"learner at the center" has become a core strategy in education and
training. Strategies like flipped classrooms, MOOCs, or peer collaborations are
all part of a trend toward very personalized learning—"me-learning."
These trends increasingly emphasize online learning environments that are
learner-initiated, learner activated, and learner-constructed. How can
individuals prepare to own their own learning and how can administrators help
them stay afloat? Presenters from WebJunction and Learning Round Table will
share their discoveries about the future of learning and strategies for
supporting and empowering the learner.
