EXPERT ON LATEST LEARNING TECHNOLOGIES TO SPEAK AT K-STATE

MANHATTAN -- New learning technologies will be the topic of the first presentation in the 2009-2010 Provost's Lecture Series at Kansas State University.

Mark David Milliron, founder and CEO of the private consulting and service group Catalyze Learning International, will present "A New Generation of Learning: Diverse Students, Emerging Technologies and a Sustainability Challenge" at 10:30 a.m., Friday, Sept. 25, in the K-State Alumni Center's banquet rooms A and D. The lecture is free and open to the public.

Milliron will discuss new technologies involved with learning, as well as how they can keep up with modern education and retain the human touch.

An award-winning author, speaker and consultant, Milliron serves as board chair for the Institute for the Study of Knowledge Management in Education.
