Bonk is a professor of instructional systems technology at Indiana University and president of CourseShare. A well-known authority on emerging technologies for learning, Bonk reflects on his speaking experiences around the world in his popular blog, TravelinEdMan. He has co-authored several widely used books, including “The World is Open: How Web Technology is Revolutionizing Education,” “Empowering Online Learning: 100+ Activities for Reading, Reflecting, Displaying and Doing,” “The Handbook of Blended Learning” and “Electronic Collaborators.” He received the Most Outstanding Achievement award from the U.S. Distance Learning Association and the Most Innovative Teaching in a Distance Education Program award from the state of Indiana.
