Online Learning at BU: Innovations, Outcomes, and Insights Conference

05/13/2009

The conference provided an opportunity for faculty to learn about BU's eight year history of online program offerings and distance learning technologies and to interact with experienced faculty about their online teaching experiences and program outcomes.  Most importantly, the conference highlighted the insights faculty who develop and teach in these programs have gained about teaching effectiveness, not only in online programs, but in the classroom as well.
