Digital Education Day Details

March 20, 2020 is Digital Education Day. Faculty from several campuses will learn why some myths about digital education are not true. Among the myths to be busted are that

  • There is no way to get THIS course online
  • Since digital natives have used social media all their lives they are better at all aspects of computers than others
  • Getting to know students well in an online class is impossible

Also, presenters will explore myths about OER materials.

Digital Education Day will include three sets of break out sessions. Presenters will include HFC’s Technology Faculty Learning Community. In addition to the break out sessions Robin DeRosa will present a keynote session. The sessions will run from 9 AM to 2:30.
