November 8th-12th is National Distance Learning Week and Berkeley College has many activities planned.  Attend a Virtual Open House,  view a sample course, and enter a distance-learning essay contest.  Visit this LINK to learn more.

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.
