Three seminars coming from ITDL The Instructional Technologies Distance Learning Department will offer three seminars in the next few days that should be of interest to many on campus.

2020 Forecast: Creating the Future of Learning
The Map of Future Forces Shaping Education is, according to its authors: "a tool for thinking about, preparing for, and shaping the future. It outlines key forces of change that will shape the landscape of learning. It does not predict what will happen; it is designed to help you see connections among things that once seemed unrelated and to help you consider the changes and challenges that you are facing today within the context of wider patterns of change." Join us in a discussion about what is possible, what is problematic, and what our role is in shaping the future.
