ELI Online Fall Focus Session
September 15–16, 2015
Noon–3:30 p.m. (ET)
A Look Inside the Online Fall Focus Session
As higher education changes and evolves, so too do the requirements for campus leadership in support of the teaching and learning mission. Older models often had siloed groups providing redundant services. Join us for the ELI Fall Focus Session where we explore the new and emerging models, strategies, and approaches to a collaborative, cross-campus approach to teaching and learning.
Focus Session Features
- Presentation Sessions: Sessions designed to provide an overview of specific topic areas and successful emerging approaches related to the focus session theme, immediately followed by opportunities to interact one-on-one with session presenters.
- Project Rounds: A series of institutional cases/examples presented in a sequential, fast-paced format exploring a single project, emerging technology, or campus initiative. Project rounds will be followed by an opportunity for separate discussion with each of the presenters.
- Activities/Discussions: Discussions will focus on the session theme and associated challenges and opportunities. Groups, both virtual and local, may use this time to further probe session topics through guided discussion and collaborative activities, conducted with an institutional group or individuals in virtual rooms.
Online Learning Space
Presentations are delivered live in an online learning space designed to promote interaction between the presenters and participants and facilitate deep exploration of the content. Participants may pose questions to experts and their colleagues, review institutional examples, and learn about current practices.
Participate as a Team
ELI offers single and additional focus session registrations. Registrants will receive a customizable resource packet to be used as either an individual participant or to host a face-to-face institutional team around the online focus session content.
For more information, please see the resources page.
ELI focus sessions are informed, planned, and organized by ELI members who are engaged, passionate, and experienced in the selected theme. Thank you to the ELI Online Focus Session 2015 Program Committee.
