2016 Annual Spring Conference
Our 2016 Spring Conference, held on March 10, got underway with a keynote address by Vanessa Dennen, an Associate Professor of Instructional Systems at Florida State University. In her address, Vanessa discussed the nexus of cognitive, motivational, and social elements in computer-mediated communication, concentrating on two major issues: learner participation in online activities, and interactions, norm development, and informal learning within online communities of practice. Following the keynote session, conference participants attended an array of engaging and informative morning and afternoon sessions. The conference ended with an awards ceremony and a networking reception in which drawings for gift cards and a Kindle Fire HD were held.
