FD Staffers Attend Midwest Summit on Online Learning

By Mary Jo Katras, Program Leader — Family Resiliency

To help the Center for Family Development increase its capacity and knowledge base for online learning, five FD staff members attended the Minnesota eLearning Summit in Minneapolis last week. The two-day conference, co-sponsored by the Minnesota Department of Education, Minnesota State Colleges and Universities, and the University of Minnesota, was attended by over 400 educators, developers, innovators, and presenters from around the Midwest. The 80 concurrent breakout sessions focused on blended, flipped and digital learning tools, resources, services, and best practices for online learning.

Asked to give one- (or two-) word reflections on their conference experiences, FD staffers said, “back to the fundamentals,” “learner engagement,” “innovative,” “possibilities,” and “informative.” Keep an eye out for the innovative ways these folks will apply what they learned to our work in Family Development.
