Open Apereo 2017

Annual Meeting

Each year, the Technology and Learning group invites faculty to attend select educational technology conferences. The Open Apereo annual meeting will be held on June 4-8, 2017 in Philadelphia, PA. 

This year, a number of Pepperdine faculty members attended the conference. The Technology and Learning team contributed to several presentations: Landon Phillips, lead instructional designer, presented on teaching and learning methods that increase student retention. He also presented on alternative methods of assessing student's learning by using interactive, game-based learning techniques. Yonah Feinstein, the instructional consultant at Technology and Learning, gave a presentation on using attractive and customizable course site templates to provide students and faculty with a clearer platform to seek autodidactic instruction and curriculum engagement. 

Technology and Learning extended an invitation to Pepperdine faculty members to attend Open Apereo. At the conference, faculty members were given opportunities for professional development as well as a chance to identify and share products and strategies to promote student learning. We would like to thank the following faculty members for joining us this year:
