Dear Commons Community,
As I indicated earlier this week, I have been in Orlando at the Sloan Consortium’s Annual International Conference on Online Learning. The program has been robust and I would have liked to have attended several more presentations but just could not fit them in. A plenary by Barbara Means (Standford Research Institute) who led the USDOE Study online learning, Evidence-Based Practices in Online Learning, http://www2.ed.gov/rschstat/eval/tech/evidence-based-practices/finalreport.pdf, was excellent. A panel discussion on recent research on online and blended learning likewise was quite good. And a session by our colleagues, Jennifer Sparrow, Howard Wach and Rob Whitaker,entitled, Blending from Brooklyn to the Bronx, reported on the CUNY’s recent hybrid learning initiative.
Today is a travel day.
