ANNOUNCEMENTS

LEARNING TECHNOLOGIES OPEN HOUSE 2017
The Office of Distance Education is partnering with West Chester University to co-host the Learning Technologies Open House, Friday Oct. 27, in 223 MSU. The 2015 KU event was a big success, featuring 12 presentations and attended by more than 50 faculty members from both KU and WCU. We invite faculty members from all departments to submit proposals. We are currently calling for presentations that advance digital-age learning by helping educators leverage technology to enhance learning experiences, empower students, encourage collaboration, introduce real-world problem solving, and promote information literacy. Use the registration form to indicate if you'd like to present and if you will be joining us for lunch.
