Just wanted to share some good news. The Online Learning Research Office (OLRO) has supported 12 research projects over the last 14 months – and we submitted a proposal to the Online Learning Consortium (formerly Sloan-C) to present some preliminary results from one of these projects at their international conference in Orlando in October. Our proposal, entitled “Assessing the Impact of E-Text, Flipped Classroom and iPad Usage in an Anatomy and Physiology Course,” was accepted for the conference. Dr. Kerrie McDaniel (Department of Biology) and Thomas Patterson (GA in the OLRO) will be presenting the results of our research in 35-minute informational session on October 30 from 4:10-4:45pm in Orlando. Details on the research project and some of our preliminary findings are available here.
Hopefully the first of many presentations and publications for the OLRO.
