Dear Faculty,

Please join us for
Desire2Learn Day
Brennan Hall, Room 509 (Rose Room)
Thursday, April 24, 2014

Several sessions for faculty members will be conducted during the day, as outlined in the schedule below. The highlight of the day will be the lunchtime forum for faculty Desire2Learn – More Than Just a Course Management System.

Desire2Learn is a next generation learning solution, addressing key challenges related to learner engagement, retention, and outcomes. Its design and functionality represent a shift from the simple course management capabilities of an LMS, to a highly pervasive, perceptive, and personal learning experience. Come learn about the advantages of using Desire2Learn for your teaching, and some of its key features, from Desire2Learn representatives.

Also hear about the “real-life” experience of one of our own faculty members, Dr. George Gomez, who is using the D2L learning environment this semester.
