Carol Smith, dean of Berkeley's distance learning program, has planned an all-day Distance Learning Symposium for Monday, November 8th. Online faculty members will attend this faculty development symposium and participate in a variety of workshops on effective practices in online learning.
In addition to teaching social science courses online, I also serve as Online Chair for the School of Liberal Arts. On Monday afternoon, I will deliver a presentation on the use of multimedia resources to engage students and help meet course objectives and learning outcomes. I will be showing some examples of how Liberal Arts faculty have successfully incorporated multimedia into their online courses.
