School of Management (SOM) faculty members Andres Fortino, Paige Wolf, Michelle Marks, and Sarah Nutter will present “Using WebCT in Distance Education: The School of Management’s ClassroomPlus Program for Graduate Studies.” The event is scheduled for Friday, April 16, from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the Johnson Center Library Instruction Room (228). The entrance is located next to the Johnson Center Library course reserves desk.

The showcase will feature demonstrations of WebCT courses in MBA and bioscience studies offered by SOM’s ClassroomPlus program. Faculty members will discuss strategies used to convert their traditional classroom teaching to the web, lessons learned in making the transition, and challenges faced in maintaining quality assurance for the student’s experience. ClassroomPlus is a model for distance education that has relevance for all disciplines.
