Transforming the Teaching & Learning Environment: the PASSHE Virtual Conference.
During two weeks in February will be 60 one-hour interactive sessions, all delivered right to your computer or mobile device. Plus, all the sessions are recorded so you can watch the ones you missed. Topics include best practices for teaching online, assessment strategies, using social media in teaching, legal issues, flipped classroom, gamification, lecture capture, and more! It’s a real value at only $60 for an individual registration. Even better, we have an institutional registration for $150. Everyone at your school can participate in the conference for that one fee.

The committee has recommended that UK no longer use Blackboard as its LMS after the contract ends on June 30, 2016, and it has endorsed Instructure’s Canvas for meeting the teaching and learning needs on this campus.
