National Distance Learning Week 2017

NDLA logoThis year National Distance Learning Week (NDLW) is November 6th-10th, and is part of a national event by the United States Distance Learning Association (USDLA) to celebrate distance learning in the United States.

As we take a moment to share our appreciation of the campus community who endeavor to expand online learning across our academic disciplines, we will be sharing engaging learning opportunities and highlighting a few of the many resources available to faculty at UA Little Rock in pursuit of teaching excellence.

Below you will see our schedule of events as well as a link to USDLA’s and Online Learning Consortium’s webinars and resources.

All presentations will be hosted in Dickinson Hall room 101.
