The CDLT will sponsor or participate in a variety of sessions for the 2017 AAACE Conference in Memphis, including: CDLT Pre-Conference Symposium on Social Media; CDLT Forum; Best Practice Winners in Distance Learning and Technology; AAACE Awards Luncheon; and CDLT Networking Mixer. It’s EASY to ENGAGE with the CDLT!

In recognition of the growing influence of online and other distance learning technologies on adult learning, AAACE supports the CDLT to provide members with opportunities to share best practices and research on how adults are learning in networked and other technological learning environments. Our goal is to increase communication and collaboration among adult educators across academic, workplace, community, and other settings who have an interest in sharing their knowledge and practice about learning with virtual technologies.

Director/CDLT Pre-Conference Symposium Chair: Dr. J. Bernard Bradley (cdlt@aaace.org)

CDLT Pre-Conference Symposium Co-Chairs: Tricia Berry; Sola Popoola
Other CDLT Leaders: Leigh Ann Whittle; Tonka Jokelova; Brianne Moore-Adams

Sessions

Individual speed presentations (with audio-visual equipment) and roundtable discussions are designed to complement the workshop by allowing symposium attendees to explore select topics of interest in greater depth. At the discretion of the planning committee, some roundtable discussions will be combined into shared concurrent sessions. However, all individual presenters will facilitate two presentations. Specific presentation times will be shared with presenters and registrants via email and onsite. The following are examples of discussion-based presentations that have been accepted to round out the symposium.

  • Creating Instructor Podcasts for Distance Education Courses
