eConversations

Discussions about learning in the cloud

What are eConversations?

Many times, the classroom dynamics and interactions that take place in online courses are different than those of a face-to-face teaching experience--sometimes they can take on a life of their own! eConversations grew out of a faculty development initiative within the Eberly College of Science to help faculty and instructors face these challenges.


Our vision is that a few times during the semester, online learning groups from across the university will host a topic of interest to faculty and instructors involved in teaching online. Our goal is to provide opportunities for participants to:


  • Better understand the activity of teaching and learning online;
  • Broaden and strengthen networks by expanding conversation across disciplines and campuses;
  • Identify and confirm successful online strategies; and
  • Discover and implement new ideas for online education!
