Spring 2019 Learning Opportunity!
Our theme this year, ACCESSibility, addresses a critical issue for practitioners and administrators in online Christian education. Accessibility is not simply about how we access education but our missional calling, our philosophical approach, and our willingness to meet students where they are. There are a number of ways that learners can accomplish learning goals but in many cases, those options are limited and capabilities can be challenging. Our name, ACCESS, suggests that we support the process of learning across multiple platforms, venues, and entry points.
Some Christian institutions are currently facing litigation for non-compliance in online and residential course content, materials, and websites. These institutions are required to show proof-of-progress, be fully compliant in a few short years, and ultimately make new content fully accessible. These and many other issues related to accessibility are important to the field of Christian online education.
ACCESS 2019 will provide insight to issues of accessibility with assistive technologies, student support, and course design, to name a few. Please come and participate in this very important conversation. For more information, visit www.accessed.org or contact Dr. Mary Lowe at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dates: March 13-15
Location: Belhaven University, Jackson, MS
Professional CVs wanted!
Folks, it's not a bad idea for us to begin a collection of CVs of people in need of work. I've started a discussion forum in the "Forum" area as a repository for these things
. Hopefully, if enough get submitted, we'll have a place to advertise for ourselves when we're ready to move on as well as a place from which to seek candidates for positions we're advertising. Please check it out and drop a CV or two in there!
