Interested in hearing about the latest innovative teaching efforts going on at Ohio State?

This year’s Innovate Conference will be held at the Union on May 14th. The conference in years past has featured faculty, educational technology and learning design specialists, IT professionals, and students all sharing and learning from each other. It’s a day that never disappoints and always inspires!

If you’d like to join me in attending this year, please email me and let me know you’ll be there! If we have enough Extension folks in attendance we can plan a brief meet and greet in-between sessions.

For those who can’t attend, I’ll post a recap of the day’s most applicable information to this blog afterward.

To register (Psst…. IT’S FREE!) [Registration sold out April 28th] and for more information, visit the conference website.


How to Write for Online Audiences

The Ed Techs have shared several examples of online writing best practices in the past couple of years, including one created by CommTech and one from the CDC. This morning, I came across another one. Below is a Slidedeck from Jennifer Chilek (Ed Tech for eXtension’s Network Literacy CoP) on writing for online audiences.

In the slides below, she includes examples of best practices as well as succinct info that’s usable and to-the-point. If you have questions about converting content that’s currently in a traditional pub or curriculum into quality content more suited to an online audience, please let us know in the comments below or don’t hesitate to send me an email (seger.23).
