"Online learning gives students access to a top-tier experience," said Mayra Collins, UTSA Online Learning staff member and co-chair for this year's conference. "We must continually find ways to adapt and enhance curriculum and teaching to create engaging, effective learning environments for students who have grown up in a digital environment. This evolution is what this conference is all about."
The conference keynote speakers are Marni Baker Stein, chief innovation officer at the University of Texas System Institute for Transformational Learning, and Robbie Kendall-Melton, associate vice chancellor of e-learning and emerging mobilization technology for the Tennessee Board of Regents. They will discuss current educational affairs, focusing on the future of educational technology.
The Innovations in Online Learning conference is designed for higher education faculty, staff and students who are engaged in any level of online learning. The conference program will include presentations, panels and roundtable discussions on the topics of learning spaces, teaching and learning, students and faculty services, instructional design, administration, and policies and technology.
