The February FLIP meeting will be a little different from our usual fare. We have permission from the organizers for FLIP participants to register for the UAA eLearning Luncheon, 11:30am – 1:00pm on Friday, February 26, 2021. Yes, this used to be a real luncheon with real food (deliciously prepared by the UAA Culinary Department) at Lucy’s in Cuddy Hall, but like last year, will be a Zoom event instead.
Register here to attend. A Zoom invite will be included in the confirmation email.
This year’s theme is Online Community and Innovation: Taking the Distance out of Distance Education and will feature a keynote on “Self-care for Educators” presented by Drs. Hattie Harvey and Sara Buckingham from UAA’s Psychology Department.
Other presentations will feature innovative online teaching strategies being used at UAA by Drs. Ray Ball (History), Mark Fitch (Math), and Mary Dallas Allen (Social Work).
For over a decade, this luncheon has been dedicated to introducing exciting and cutting-edge faculty initiatives to support student learning at UAA. The event is hosted by the UAA Academic Computing, Distance Learning, Instructional Technology, and eLearning Committee, and is generously sponsored by UAA Information Technology Services.
Hope to see you there!
FLIP will be back on March 26 with Julie Varee and Pa Ja Yang, Project Lead of Libraries in Bloom, a blog highlighting innovative librarianship as told by library professioanals from culturally diverse backgrounds to broaden perspective and encourage progress.
