Online Conference: How studies of educational uses of technology use can help improve academic programs while controlling costs
On Thursday, October 18, there will be a free webcast, organized for provosts and invited faculty and staff. The session has been requested and organized by the Louisiana Board of Regents for the benefit of institutions in Louisiana, but it is open to other institutions worldwide.
The topic of this two-hour session: how studies of educational uses of technology use can help improve academic programs while controlling costs. The session will cover studies by institutions as well as by individual faculty. The briefing will also cover the ways in which Flashlight tools and services can be used to help carry out such studies.
The Webcast can be viewed on computers. If your institution is interested, about 100 institutions can connect their own videoconferencing equipment to the host so that their participants can more fully take part. We are grateful to Louisiana Public Broadcasting and Blackboard Inc. for providing the videoconferencing facilities. There is no charge for this session.
For more information, including information on the speakers and a self-study that can be used to help prepare for the conversation, see our Web site at http://www.tltgroup.org/calendar/2001/flashlight/Louisiana_video.htmp
