March 29, 2019 | Right-Mixing for Optimal Student Engagement: MBA Program Redesign as Impetus for Rethinking Learning Environments

Presented by Tawnya Means, Ph.D., University of Nebraska–Lincoln

Join us via in-person on the UNL campus or via live-webcast.

Relying simply on technology is not sufficient to change teaching. The philosopher Martin Heidegger noted that "Teaching is even more difficult than learning... because what teaching calls for is this; to let learn." (1968, p. 15, as quoted by Sturm, 2001).

The challenge is to determine what to teach, when and where and with the right activity in the right space at the right time.

Join us in-person or via live-webcast when Tawnya Means, Ph.D., discusses the process for redesigning the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, College of Business MBA program to discuss how instructor presence, student engagement and interaction, course structure, look and feel, academic integrity and assessment played a role in redesigning the program.

Through examples, Means will guide participants through an exploration of:

  • Technology-enhanced learning and promoting a decision-making process
  • What technology should be used for support
  • What happens best synchronously and asynchronously
  • How to protect program integrity
  • Right-mixing the learning environment and experiences for students

Important: An email will be sent out prior to the event with attendance information.

Lunch will be served at 11:30 A.M. (CST)
Presentation begins at 12:00 - 1:00 P.M. (CST)
