as part of the Syllabus
fall2003 Conference [syllabus.com] in Boston, December 8-10, 2003.
This seminar is designed for faculty, faculty support personnel
and administrators responsible for the design of online learning programs
and initiatives. This seminar is an opportunity for faculty, faculty support
personnel and administrators to explore the key issues, technology tools,
and processes for designing and delivering online and distance learning programs.
The key processes include developing a framework for design, exploring core
learning principles, and identifying the steps in preparing courses and learning
experiences for the Web and online virtual spaces. Some of the key issues
include managing administrative challenges of costs, time and infrastructure
needs for online learning such as faculty workload, training, and course development

for Faculty support/development group on "Learning Technologies and Learning
Principles: What's Next and What Works? Description
of Seminar: This seminar focused on emerging trends in learning technologies,
such as ubiquitous computing, complex discipline resources, and others that
will likely have significant impact on the design of learning, and the design
of our future campuses.Technologies in the absence of
learning principles can be fun and interesting, but not necessarily
effective for learning; in the second part of the seminar, we'll discuss how
to link the possibilities of the learning technologies
to core learning principles to get the most value for effective and efficient
learning and teaching.
