Hi Dr. Zhang!
I received this info from Laura Cummings...Do you know if anyone from WSU is attending?
"I only recently heard about the Online Learning Symposium coming up next week. I already have commitments or I would try to attend.
Here's the info I received in an email:
"The 2008 MVU Symposium, held Feb. 6, 2008 at the Marriott Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti at Eagle Crest Conference Center in Ypsilanti, is a forum for K-12 school administrators, school board members, technology directors and others to explore the growth and impact of online learning. To learn more about this event and how to register, please visit our website at http://www.mivu.org/symposium .
The symposium will feature state and national speakers, and a variety of presentations aimed at showcasing solutions to everyday challenges in education, including meeting the Michigan Merit Curriculum requirements, helping students succeed online, and discussing online learning solutions for urban schools, accessibility issues, network access considerations and more."
I saw Dr. Barbour at MACUL today in one of the sessions for MVU. I forgot to ask if you were attending? I saw Stacey and Lynn as well. MVU had a "best practices" session for online learning. I found out MVU has a Career Forward course they market for districts to meet the on-line learning requirement, but nothing like our Team's proposal. We'll keep our fingers crossed :-)
