Are you interested in discovering the most successful e-learning strategies and solutions to the most common e-learning challenges faculty and learning designers face? Then look no further than the Teaching and Learning Activities Showcase on Friday, April 24.
Registration is open now through Wednesday, April 22, for the University-wide showcase, which is being held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Penn State Harrisburg, Penn State Hazleton, and Penn State New Kensington. The event, which is cosponsored by the Schreyer Institute for Teaching Excellence and the three hosting campuses, will showcase a variety of e-learning projects from faculty and learning designers. Attendees will have the opportunity to speak with presenters about the various tools and technologies they used to build their classroom projects.
Friday, March 18 is the proposal deadline for faculty and learning designers interested in presenting their hybrid or online classroom projects at the event. Those accepted will be notified by Friday, March 27.
The event will have a morning session from 10 to 11:30 a.m., and an afternoon session from 1:30 to 3 p.m. Presenters will have their own space during either session in a science-fair type exhibition and are required to bring their own presentation materials.

He is the president and founder of CourseShare, LLC.
