Faculty to present at Peer-to-Peer Distance Learning Exchange Jan. 10

By Grant Guggisberg

Kansas State University Global Campus invites you to its Peer-to-Peer Learning Exchange event, designed to showcase the strategies and tools learned through the K-State Online Essentials Faculty Development Course in a series of short, five-minute demonstrations.

This capstone event, formerly titled "Show and Tell," will be 1:30-3 p.m. Jan. 10, 2018, in the Hemisphere Room of Hale Library.

Participants in the 2017 K-State Online Essentials Faculty Development Course and K-State faculty recipients of Global Campus professional development funds who attended a 2017 distance conference will make presentations. Faculty and staff who are interested in online teaching are encouraged to attend.

Taught by Lisa Shappee, library director and associate professor at Kansas State University Polytechnic, Online Essentials is a rigorous blended course that equips instructors with best practices and technology tools for online teaching.

A list of presenters sharing their expertise at the event will be available in early January.

"I was truly amazed at the innovation and creativity of the faculty," said Bronwyn Fees, associate dean, K-State College of Human Ecology. "The training expanded their strategies for engaging students with the content and with one another tremendously."

Faculty or staff interested in taking part in the 2018 K-State Online Essentials Faculty Development Course or the conference opportunities can apply at global.k-state.edu/faculty/resources or contact Global Campus quality coordinator, Laura Widenor at lwidenor@k-state.edu.
