  • Big idea is
  • Distance education is growing quickly at community colleges, according to the results of a study<http://www.itcnetwork.org/file.php?file=%2F1%2FITCAnnualSurvey2009Results.pdf> published by the Instructional Technology Council. For the 2008-9 academic year, enrollment in distance learning at community colleges grew 22 percent over the 2007-8 academic year, up from a growth rate of 11 percent in the previous year. Sloan Survey of Online Learning report released early this year, which tracked overall national campus enrollments, indicated that distance learning enrollments grew by 17 percent.
  • Administrative strategy and direction to grow DL with limited instructional design/technologist/media resources requires faculty to go it on their own. The need to build institutional capacity to understand and make informed decisions through professional development, conferences, showcases, and research about teaching with instructional technologies. Staff resources, especially in Distance Learning & Instructional Technologies. Conflicting priorities , time, staff, and limited Information Technology and instructional technology resources.
  • Community College Survey of Student Engagement = Real world talking points… making connections with the outside world – outside the walls of the classroom – relevancy Growth in DL and traditional use of Instruct Tech requires engaging (ccssee) and relevant content, motivation, retention rich curriculum
  • John Seely Brown is a visiting scholar and advisor to the Provost at University of Southern California (USC) and the Independent Co-Chairman of the Deloitte Center for the Edge. 
  • Duke, youtube video upload each day is ?
  • We use this in our training at GRCC… when we teach technology to our faculty - Seven Principles of Effective Practice in Undergraduate Education – it’s not just about sitting in classes listening to teachers, memorizing prepackaged assignments, and spitting out answers. Student to student discussing video – starter questions for facilitating classroom discussion and share playlists
  • Historical and timely (current) engaging, relevant, dynamic and contextual video resources – bring the REAL WORLD to the classroom and the students to the world – motivation/retention is key, RELIABLE trusted source / youtube concerns Download video also for areas without wifi
  • In closing using the ntl ed tech plan goals… and that is where we are headed at GRCC researching, piloting, and discovering new tools that can empower our faculty and students to learn effectively, become engaged, so that they can learn anytime anywhere.
