Technology today allows us to learn from anywhere! Based on his 2017 book The Anywhere, Anytime Classroom: The Blueprint for Learning Online, this session speaks to the aspirational opportunities that exist for improving learning capacities thanks to the mobility of both learners and those that facilitate the learning process. Practical, this presentation also addresses the basic assumptions of what it takes to facilitate high impact learning activities using basic, online technologies. Dr. Casey Reason has more than 20 years of experience in teaching and designing learning at a distance. He designed Grand Canyon University’s first online doctoral degree in leadership studies and collaborated for many years with India’s Tata Group in developing and delivering international, online learning opportunities. This session offers a fun, forward thinking look at learning in a mobile world and offers very practical strategies for keeping learning and the learner at the heart of it all.
The Use of Technology–Many organizations struggle wrapping their heads around technology infusion and what it means to the learning process. This session both advocates and applies the advancements and reminds everyone that learning, not the technology that carried it, must remain at the center of it all. Technophiles and technophobes will both value this presentation.
