Higher education is buzzing about blended and online learning, the flipped classroom and MOOCs. Academics from every discipline have taken notice and are working on strategies to incorporate these concepts into their curriculums and courses. CIOs and technologists should be part of these strategic discussions and work together with academics to bring the best solutions to the table in order to meet the institution’s goals.

Join us for this complimentary webinar event where one innovative CIO puts it all into perspective – when to enter the conversation on blended learning strategy and how to adapt to the latest learning methodologies. Hear from University of Kentucky’s technology leader, Vince Kellen. As a 2012 Dell Transformational CIO, Vince shares how UK is responding to the uncertainty facing higher education by:

  • Defining a blended learning strategy before buying technology 
  • Weeding through the portfolio of technology options in order to invest in the right solutions for teaching and learning 
  • Responding to the MOOC phenomenon and how technologies like lecture capture can be used to support new programs 

All are welcome to register – CIOs, Academic Technologists, Instructional Technologists and Curriculum Designers are highly encouraged to attend.

Connect before, during and after the event on Twitter at #gotMOOC.

This webinar is sponsored by Echo360 and hosted by The Chronicle of Higher Education. All content presented during the event is provided by Echo360.
