Virtual Conference

The University of Arkansas Global Campus will host an online learning conference on Wednesday, Oct. 20, to unite U of A educators in a day of learning and sharing ideas and expertise.

The Better Online Learning Together conference, also known as the BOLT conference, is set from 8:45 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. Groups will meet online in 30-minute Zoom sessions throughout the day. Conference goers can choose from two tracks of topics designed for online program coordinators, online instructors, and those who want to incorporate online learning tools and strategies into face-to-face courses.

Participants can register online by Oct. 19. Those who register by Oct. 11 can request a boxed lunch to be picked up by participants in the Arkansas Union between 11:30 a.m. and noon on the day of the conference.

Topics focus on developing and improving online learning through design, student and faculty engagement, the use of learning technology and media, and the implementation of faculty peer-proven techniques. Global Campus staff will share best practices and insights gained from academic departments, national organizations, and industry partners.

Peer networking will begin at 8:45 a.m., and Cheryl Murphy, vice provost for distance education, will open the conference at 9 a.m. Attendees also can learn about Global Campus teams that support U of A distance education efforts, including the Online Student Liaison Office and teams providing assistance with compliance, technology, media production, marketing and recruiting.
