  • Keynote: "Teaching Truth in the Era of Fake News" by Kimberly Rotter    
    • Abstract: Using the Internet has become fundamental for academic/professional achievement as well as active participation in our democracy, yet people lack the essential skills to effectively use this digital tool in a “post-truth” culture. Most of us lack the skills to effectively identify credible online information, which diminishes the educational impact of search engines and creates confusion on current/historical events and political issues. To be successful online instructors, learners and citizens, we all must master the skills of healthy skepticism and bias recognition. With the 2020 Presidential election quickly approaching, this timely keynote presentation will detail the extent of the truth crisis and lay out the skills needed to become responsible digital instructors/learners/citizens.
  • Over 15+ concurrent sessions on a wide variety of topics         
  • Solutions Providers Expo     
  • Valuable Prizes
  • Great Food    
  • And ample opportunities to expand your personal professional Learning Technology/Methodology network
