Dear Commons Community,
This week I will be attending the Sloan-C Blended Learning Conference in Milwaukee. This year’s theme, “Perfecting the Blend,” reflects efforts to further explore the blending of the student experience through practice and research while harnessing the potential of new and emerging technologies, pedagogies, and practices in a greater array of educational institutions facilitating an overall improvement in the state of education.
The keynote speaker will be Dr. David Wiley, Associate Professor of Instructional Psychology and Technology in the David O. McKay School of Education at Brigham Young University. David also serves as Associate Director of the Center for the Improvement of Teacher Education and Schooling with responsibility for the research unit, where he directs the Open Education Group.
