Special Session Highlight

Around the World in 45 Minutes: Global Perspectives on Distance Education
Thursday, August 9, 2012, 1:00-1:45 p.m.

With the continuous improvement of information and communication technologies, ever more regions of the world are participating in distance education. In recognition of distance education as a truly global enterprise, and in celebration of the increasingly international audience at this conference both on-site and virtually, we invite you to attend the inaugural Global Perspectives event.

This session will highlight distance education efforts in various regions of the world to compare and contrast worldwide trends in the field. Panelists will provide regional perspectives on such topics as enrollment trends, factors that drive distance education, the value of distance education, success stories, and challenges that influence distance education efforts.

Moderated by Dr. Curtis Bonk of Indiana University, this session includes the following panelists:

  • Ari-Matta Auvinen, of HCI Productions Oy and Helsinki University of Technology in Helsinki, Finland
  • Mariangela Braga, of Universidade Estadual Paulista in Sao Paulo, Brazil
