National Distance Learning Week is just around the corner – November 9 – 13. As we offer more and more distance learning options to students, it may help to take a small amount of time to think about the newer formats. There are many more opportunities for professional development than any of us have time to do, but you might want to check out the following two sites. To find out about local options, you can check out the program for the Innovations Showcase at: https://sites.google.com/site/nationaldistancelearningweek/events-schedule. You can find more global options at the United States Distance Learning Association site at: https://www.usdla.org/events/ndlw/see-who-is-celebrating-ndlw-around-the-globe/. (Patti Blanton – Thank you for the heads up on this one!)
