Collaborating Online Means Never Having To Say Goodbye

University of Illinois: Faculty Summer Institute
May 2010

As the physical conference comes to a close it’s important to remember that the learning, networking, and collaborating with one another doesn’t have to end.  As a matter of fact, it is at this time that the new skills we’ve learned be put to use, the new connections we’ve made be cultivated, and the tools we’ve learned about be utilized.  This is a concept Kevin Johnson understands.  As a distant education consultant, distant instructor, distant student, and co-author of Online Education for Dummies, Kevin rarely meets face-to-face with clients, colleagues, students, or faculty. This session will explore the challenges of communicating and collaborating with other professionals in the field and efficient strategies for continuing dialogue as we leave the conference to return to our respective campuses and organizations.
