"Surviving to Thriving Online: Lessons Learned in Online Education": A Panel Discussion Moderated by Dr. Bobbe Baggio w/Panelists Margaret Uhrich, Robin Eisenburg, Tony Ellis and Mary Eklund

Recent graduates of LaSalle University’s Intructional Technology Management (ITM) Program share their perspectives as non-traditional online learners. Members of the graduating pilot group will recount their experiences, applying their lessons learned to corporate learning. Members of this initial group will discuss developing and supporting online learning skills for adult students, effective instructional techniques, and suggestions for applying these lessons in corporate settings.

"From Classroom to Chatroom: Collaborating Online with SMEs": Presented by Nathan Eckel: Performance Consultant, LaSalle Adjunct Professor, and Author.

Nathan Eckel explains how you can help Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) transition from face-to-face instruction to an online world. The Collaborating Online workshop at LaSalle uses several online strategies to help tenured faculty transition from classroom instruction to online facilitation. Eckel will also include some tips on working with both corporate and academic SMEs, and present reasons why taking a collaborative approach (as opposed to a competitive one) is so important today.
