Event Description:

Please join us and your colleagues as together we share experiences in distance education delivery. At this conference we will learn the latest news about our Distance Education direction, and together form our next steps in continuing, and increasing, our offering of quality and robust online learning experiences for our students. You are encouraged to save the date for the 2nd annual DE Summit, Friday, February 24th 2017. This is a free event.

The 2nd annual Distance Education Summit invites Faculty, Staff, Instructional Technologist/Designers, and Administrative Leaders from, Moorpark College, Oxnard College, and Ventura College to propose a presentation for our 2nd Annual District Wide Distance Education Summit.

Join your colleagues from across the district as an active contributor to the future of online learning. We want your presentation proposal(s) about quality online learning. Proposals can be about enhancing successful fully online, hybrid, and web enhanced courses. The presentations can be teams or individuals. We highly encourage presenting on incorporation of High Impact Practices (HIPs) in the online environment. A few examples but not exhaustive: creating active student discussions, developing opportunity for students to bond and remove the “loneiness” of online learning, developing visual resources such as short video and audio. developing critical thinking, humanizing the online classroom with faculty visually present, holding synchronized and visual time in the regularly synchronized class, student research, student service learning, learning communities across courses, gamification, student writing across curriculum, promoting transfer to university, ways of encouraging completion and retention, methods for scaffolding the course for greater student success, creating a welcoming and safe environment, rescuing the failing/disappearing student, etc.

In addition to plenary sessions by our Academic Leaders and a Keynote speaker on the topic, the District Wide DE Summit Planning Committee is intent on providing workshops and symposia for faculty sharing best practices distance education and technology for online and hybrid classrooms.  Consider presenting at one or more of the sessions. Several different forums are available to fit a variety of topics and time slots, including:

  • 10 -25 minute auditorium  presentation with  visual aids and interactivity.
  • 20 - 40 minute concurrent sessions
