Maricopa Girls @ ELI Annual Meeting

Originally uploaded by

This week’s learning adventure took me and a group of others from Maricopa to San Antonio, Texas for the ELI 2008 Annual Meeting, Connecting and Reflecting: Preparing Learners for Life 2.0 at the Hyatt Regency San Antonio–Riverwalk.

I’ve never been to an ELI conference before, but when Veronica suggested we write a proposal to present, I took her up on it. We enlisted both Amy MacPherson and Cheri Hebert to join us in our presentation: Your 2.0 Life: Models and Methods to Meet Learners’ Needs in a Technological Age (Innovative Practice). It was a great presentation if I have to say so myself. I think there will be a podcast of it soon on the ELI website. Our interactive session reviewed characteristics of Life 2.0 learners and examined how they impact faculty and their teaching and learning practices. We presented data and research on instructional models, emerging web 2.0 technologies, and organizational strategies that address new learner needs and faculty instructional challenges.

I’ll post more reflections from the conference once I get home. In the picture we have: Jennifer Strickland, PVCC, Veronica Diaz, MCLI; Cheri Hebert, EMCC; Alisa Cooper, SMCC; and Amy MacPherson, SMCC.
