Symposium Line-up

The symposium will commence with a brief networking activity, followed by an interactive workshop on planning for social media projects and campaigns, as well as the integration of social media within courses and programs for adults. Dr. Cordie’s interactive workshop is titled, “Digital Andragogy: Lifelong Learning with ePortfolio and other Social Media Tools.” Tips for planning social media projects and campaigns will also be addressed.

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 may be combined into shared concurrent sessions. However, all individual presenters will facilitate two presentations.
