OLN LogoBest Practices Using Technology for Teaching, Learning and Student Services

The Ohio Learning Network invites higher education faculty, staff and administrators to attend the First Annual OLN Spring Colloquium, April 11-12, 2011 at the Columbus Hilton at Easton Town Center in Columbus, Ohio. Ohio Learning Network Colloquium: Best Practices Using Technology for Teaching, Learning and Student Services will provide opportunities for Ohio Higher Education Institutions to share best practices for using technology in the general areas of Student Services and Teaching and Learning. As eLearning in Ohio continues to grow, the need for additional eStudent Services and re-tooled academic pedagogies require educators to adapt and adopt new practices in the classroom and beyond. Learn about best practices, administration, new strategies, and what works and what doesn’t from your colleagues around the state.

OLN seeks interactive and engaging proposals in five different presentation modes. Visit colloquium web site to review the Request for Proposals (RFP). Proposal submissions will be accepted until February 14, 2011 and accepted presenters will be notified by March 1, 2011.
