Rutgers University–Camden Faculty eLearning Conference 2014
Our on-campus conference event will include short presentations and demonstrations by your Rutgers–Camden colleagues, hands-on technology breakouts, plus a guest keynote speaker at lunch time. Most sessions will be streamed live, if you’re off campus, and also recorded for later viewing.
2014 Invitation from the Chancellor
I am pleased to invite you to attend our inaugural Rutgers–Camden Faculty eLearning Conference, a showcase of our faculty’s contributions to student success using online and hybrid delivery formats, on Tuesday, April 29.
As you well know, the modes for delivering learning experiences are changing continuously. Many members of our faculty are employing best practices in this area. The conference is an opportunity for us to share our experiences and ideas as we work together to serve our students.
The conference has been designed to include online learning activities before and after the on-campus conference day. Interactive conference sessions running from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. will be presented primarily by our colleagues here at Rutgers–Camden, including:
Dr. Janice Beitz (professor, SNC)
Dr. Stuart Charmé (professor, CFAS-religion)
Dr. William FitzGerald (assistant professor, CFAS English and director, Teaching Matters and Assessment Center)
Dr. Daniel Hart (professor II, CFAS-childhood studies and psychology and faculty director, Institute of Effective Education)
Dr. Tyler Hoffman (professor, CFAS-English)
Dr. Carol Kaufman-Scarborough (professor, SBC-marketing)
I encourage you to join us in the Multi-Purpose Room in the Campus Center for as much of the schedule as you can. Refreshments and lunch will be served. More information and a registration link will be announced soon.
Please hold the date for this important faculty event. I look forward to seeing you online and at the conference on April 29.
