Here is a preview of some of the mythbusting that we’ll be doing: “When I talk to students about taking online courses, I advise them to think carefully about their strengths and areas of struggle, learning styles, and the discipline of the class they are considering taking online in order to ensure a good fit. I give them the example that I personally would feel confident taking any Humanities or Social Science class online, but would really hesitate to take a science or math class online; however, I would be willing to take THIS online math class and would feel very comfortable doing so.” — Reviewer of Math 1220 – Calculus II
We look forward to seeing everyone on July 17.
The Summer 2015 ID Summit will be held on July 17 from 10-2. Our theme for the summit is Mythbusters. The speakers and activities will focus on busting learning science and instructional design myths.
We will be holding it in the Oak Room of the Student Center (STC) at the Redwood Salt Lake Community College campus (4600 S Redwood Rd, Salt Lake City, UT 84123). Attendees can park in visitor parking just north of the student center (see map). Parking validation will be provided. We will also provide an option to attend virtually.
