CIDER session, October 2 with Dr. Thomas Carey

We invite you to our October CIDER session, the second of our new 2013-14 season. This free, online session features a presentation and discussion with Dr. Thomas Carey, strategic consultant and visiting academic at Athabasca, San Diego State, and Vancouver Island Universities.
Title: What Kinds of Learning Can We Scale with Online Resources and Activities (and what can’t we scale)?
This presentation will summarize recent research for the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario on the impact of emerging developments in online learning for Quality and Productivity in higher education. The main discussion points will be the analysis of scalable learning resources and activities, and the way different learning interactions may (or may not) be scalable. A link to Dr. Carey’s report is available at the CIDER website:
