GUEST SPEAKER

7:00 – 7:40 pm

   Michael K. Barbour

Michael is Associate Professor of Instructional Design for the College of Education and Health Sciences at Touro University California. He has been involved with K-12 distance, online, and blended learning for almost two decades as a researcher, evaluator, teacher, course designer and administrator. Michael’s research has focused on the effective design, delivery, and support of K-12 distance, online, and blended learning, particularly for students located in rural jurisdictions. This focus includes how regulation, governance and policy can impact effective distance, online, and blended learning environments. This has resulted in invitations to testify before House and Senate committees in several states, as well as consulting for Ministries of Education across Canada and in New Zealand.

e-Learning – What Existing Models, Practices, and Research Tells Us About Effective Design, Delivery, and Supports

 

Ontario has a long and rich history of e-learning that has evolved over the past two and a half decades. This evolution, which continues today, has been driven and supported by a variety of factors and stakeholders from all corners of the educational context. As this evolution continues, what might we gain from looking beyond Ontario and examining existing programs and approaches found elsewhere? And, what can we learn from existing research into e-learning and, more specifically, e-learning for secondary students? In this talk, Michael will share models and practices from throughout North America and what the existing research tells us about effective design, delivery and supports in e-learning.
