Technology and Distance Learning Symposium Happening This Weekend
Posted on 03/03/2014
The OTAN Technology and Distance Learning Symposium 2014 (TDLS) is happening March 7 and 8 in Baldwin Park. If you are not one of the 200 lucky registrants who are currently attending the TDLS, you can still follow what is being shared with your colleagues. Registration for the Symposium is closed, and there is no on-site registration, but OTAN has reserved the Twitter hashtag #tdls14 for symposium attendees to use to post live tweets. TDLS tweets will also use the hastags #edtech , and #adulted . Simply follow these hashtags for Symposium updates, or if you prefer using Facebook, you may "like" OTAN for periodic timeline updates.
Handouts and videos from previous symposiums are also available. This is a great way to get your professional development regarding implementing distance, blended, online instruction, as well as integrating technology in the classroom. Visit the links below for the previous TDLS events in 2009, 2011 and 2013 to download the materials.
A few weeks following this year's TDLS, presenters will have uploaded handouts and resources from the current symposium. Be sure to bookmark and check the TDLS Web site to download these new presentations. There will also be videos of the following TDLS presentations available:
- Teletutoring: Real-Time Distance Education for English Language Learners
- National and State Trends with Adult Education and Technology
- The Industry Sector Focus of Community Colleges' EWD/CTE Programs
And without doubt, you will enjoy viewing our keynote by David Rosen about Using Free Online Video Instruction for Adult Learners.
Finally, check the OTAN Web site or follow OTAN on Twitter for the date and location of next year's event in the south San Francisco Bay area and make plans to attend the next Technology and Distance Learning Symposium.
Publicly funded curriculum materials are available for purchase, including English for All DVDs and materials developed for EL Civics.
