e.SCAPE – annual conference on digital learning

Dr. Jen Ross, lecturer at the University of Edinburgh, co-creator of the E-Learning and Digital Cultures MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) and the Manifesto for Teaching Online will present to us live from Edinburgh, Scotland on the SGW and Loyola Campuses.

Commemorating the 10-year anniversary of the MSc in Digital Education at the University of Edinburgh, Dr. Ross will discuss the emerging challenges and opportunities in digital education and provide us with a peek at the newly revised Manifesto for Teaching Online (https://onlineteachingmanifesto.wordpress.com). Dr. Ross will then open the floor to an interactive question and discussion period.

Teach for Tomorrow

Help launch our discussion on teaching as part of phase two of the university’s Strategic Directions initiative (we’ve arrived at nine directions). You’ll have the chance to weigh in on what represents good teaching and how this fosters a next-generation real education. The Teach for Tomorrow direction is grounded in fundamental and transformative experiences for our students. So, please bring your ideas, stories and your voice to this important conversation.  No need to register, just drop by!
