    During the Yellowdig Information Session, we will expose you to the many ways faculty are leveraging our collaborative discussion platform to improve the quality of online / blended instruction. After quick and informal introductions, we will dive right into the product and show you how it saves faculty hours of time a week with grading, while simultaneously decreasing student withdrawals. Following the demonstration, there will be plenty of time for Q&A and brainstorming.

  • Information Superhighway vs. Walkable City: OLC National Speaker Dr. Gardner Campbell

    Thursday, January 25, 2018

    9:30 AM-11:00 AM

    Behrakis Grand Hall – South Creese Student Center

    • Everyone

    In the 1960s, Clark Kerr spoke of the modern research university as the “City of Intellect.” As the Internet became a commodity in the 1990s, the metaphor of the “information superhighway” was used to explain the potential of this new light-speed global telecommunications network. When these two metaphors converged at the turn of the century, universities looked to online learning as an opportunity best imagined in terms of information superhighways, with a resulting emphasis on “content delivery” and “scaling.” But as Jane Jacobs argued in her classic The Death and Life of Great American Cities, cities are more than superhighways, and should be built around ideas of walkability, serendipity, and the kinds of connections that emerge within cities and form their crucial social and cultural infrastructure. In this talk, Dr. Gardner will make the case for the philosophy of “connected learning” as a way to use Jacobs’ vision, and the moral crisis it diagnoses, to inspire a more humane and effective approach to online learning.
