2009 Teaching and Learning Symposium

2:30-4:30 p.m., April 21, 2009
HUB Ballroom

Session Description



Teach and learn from anywhere, to anywhere with web conferencing

Alan Gojdics (Nursing)

Web conferencing is core to the School of Nursing's distance learning initiatives. The Adobe Connect platform enables students to connect in real time with other students, instructors and guest speakers around the region, nationally and internationally, via the Internet. Boundaries once imposed by the physical classroom are disappearing. In one course an instructor teaches Seattle students from Europe, and in another local Health Sciences students study HIV via real time connections with more than 30 international sites, including Kenya, India and Peru.

We will demonstrate the various course formats (lecture vs. seminar) and levels of interactivity that the technology enables, from both the instructor and student perspectives.
