The “Wall of COOL” recognizes excellent hybrid and online learning experiences, or face-to-face courses that are enhanced by effectively infusing technologies that support learning. “COOL” used to stand for Celebrating Outstanding Online Learning, but we want to recognize learning experiences of all types while keeping our “cool” name!

9:00 a.m. -- 12:00 p.m.,
Ursa Minor, BSC

Dr. Michele (pronounced Mee-KAY-lay) DiPietro is a statistician at Kennesaw University -- and a co-author of the incredibly helpful book "How Learning Works: Seven Research-based Principles for Smart Teaching."
Michele presents a practical, lively, chock-full workshop based on the book. If you attended Dr. Linda Nilson's "Teaching How the Mind Works" last year, you'll definitely want to follow up with this one. If you didn't attend Linda's workshop, don't miss Michele!
