I was recently invited to speak at a conference back home, organized by Theresa Pittman at College of the North Atlantic’s Clarenville campus. The 3rd annual conference, Teaching With Technology, was an opportunity for members of the (extended and growing) community of (mostly) post-secondary institutions in the province to share their work, speak about projects and initiatives, and to learn from one another in a spirit of collaboration and innovation.
The speakers in this “Spark” session presented short 20×20 presentations (20 slides @ 20 seconds each) to brief the conference attendees on projects, departmental initiatives, or tools that are currently being employed in their respective institutions.
The institutions/departments represented include:
Centre for Distance Learning & Innovation (CDLI)
Memorial University, Faculty of Medicine
Distance Education, Learning & Teaching Supports (DELTS)
Distributed Learning (DL) at College of the North Atlantic
College of the North Atlantic – Qatar
Memorial University Grenfell Campus, Nursing School
This was a great opportunity to see a snapshot of what everyone is doing, and to get a sense of the conference participation from Newfoundland, Labrador and Qatar.
