Echo360 2014 Active Learning Conference

Echo360 2014 Active Learning Conference

Cleveland Rocks!

If you’re on the campus of Case Western University in Cleveland for the Echo360 Active Learning Conference on April 29, you may want to bring along an extra pair of shades. You might need them to fend off the lights of the paparazzi.

That’s because some of the most prominent personalities in active learning (also known as “education rock stars”) will be taking the stage to share their newsworthy experiences and success stories.

One of the illustrious speakers scheduled to appear is Dr. Russell Mumper, Vice Dean of University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Eshelman School of Pharmacy. Dr. Mumper will share his first-hand experience of flipping his first-year Pharmacy courses with Echo360, along with the remarkable results he observed in the process.

University of Kentucky Senior Vice Provost and CIO Vince Kellen is forever on the leading edge of what’s hot in active learning.  One of the trending topics in educational technology today revolves around learning analytics. During his conference session, Kellen will illustrate how to best use Echo360 analytics to increase both student engagement and retention.

This stellar speaker lineup will also feature award-winning professor and LectureTools founder, Dr. Perry Samson. Frustrated by the lack of participation and blank stares in his large lecture classes, Samson decided to leverage the technology that students were already using by creating LectureTools. Using LectureTools to add polls, quizzes and other activities to his presentations, he has seen class participation skyrocket with more than 66% of his students now asking questions. More than 5,000 instructors around the world are now using the solution to engage students and pinpoint the ‘aha’ learning moment.

If you’re a faculty member, instructional designer or academic technologist using Echo360, make plans to join us for the 2014 Active Learning Conference. You’ll walk away with fresh perspectives and strategies from inspiring educators who embody the true meaning of active learning every day.

Register today – we’ll be rolling out the red carpet in Cleveland!
