Sign up for upcoming Distance Education SIG meeting

Primary Topic: 
Education & Classroom Learning

Since 2011 the Duke Distance Education Special Interest Group (DE SIG @DU) has been meeting bi-monthly. We had meeting sessions such as a faculty panel, invited guest speakers, technology demos, presentations from Duke distance learning programs and more. Next meeting will be held on December 7, hosted by Duke Divinity School.  Thanks to Jeff Mimnaugh, Director of Information Technology, Duke Divinity School for organizing and managing the meeting. This meeting should appeal to the range of people at Duke (e.g., DE program administrators, faculty, academic technologists, instructional designers, IT, etc. Please see Jeff”s message below for more info:
