Hi all,

Just wanted to bring everyone up-to-date. We had 16 people attend our discussion session at the EDUCAUSE Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference. I’m listing them below so I can acknowledge their presence and thank them for their wonderful participation. Also, please forgive me if I inadvertently misspelled anyone’s name as I was working from a handwritten sign-in sheet.

 

Veronica McGowan from Delaware Valley College

Jenna Dulak from Hilbert College

Brook Botvin from University of Maryland

Holly Shiflett from University of Pittsburgh

Bud Deihl from Virgina commonwealth University

Paul Iwancio from MICA MD Institute College of Art

David Swim from George Washington University

Riad Twal from Seton Hall University

Greg Howarth from OnCourse Learning

Jon Reidford from HCC

Aziza Ellozy from the American University in Cairo, Egypt (and, yes, she had come the farthest to the conference) J

Sandy Dell from Edinboro University of PA

Phil Burnette from University of Maryland, Baltimore

Karl Horvath from Gwynedd-Mercy college

LaTonya Dyer from Towson University

 

We discussed faculty development in particular and one of the things that I noted was a request to develop a paper of best practices for faculty development. Another member mentioned using “teaching circles”. Creating a Professional Development Day was another member’s methodology. Other items that we talked about were the social aspects of blended and online learning. This led to a discussion of ePortfolio usage and two sites were mentioned: Digication and Epsilen. To facilitate the creative process, Behance.org was also introduced.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to take down a lot of notes, but if anyone who attended has any more to add, please feel free to share here.

 

Thanks again for attending and contributing. The best part of all, I think, was the chance to network with all of you from other institutions.

Thanks Sandie!  And thank you to all those who attended the session. Faculty development does always seem to be a challenge. I'd be interested in hearing more about the "teaching circles"

Regarding ePortfolios, AAEEBL has been hosting a series entitled "Exploring ePortfolio Technologies". You can view the sessions here: http://aaeebl.org/eport-webinar
