Provost Faculty Fellow for Online Faculty Development Dana Grossman Leeman, M.S.W., Ph.D., presented at the 25th Online Learning Consortium Accelerate conference in Orlando, Florida. Dr. Leeman co-facilitated a discovery session with co-author James Altman who is a partner of JackRabbit Learning X, an e-Learning consultancy and design firm. Their session was based on the chapter they wrote on humanizing online education through compassionate course design. Instructional designers and faculty from universities and ed-tech companies from around the country attended.
Leeman also facilitated the workshop “Antidote de for Loneliness: Creating Community through Online Faculty Enrichment Programs.” She presented the model for engaging online faculty through book clubs, faculty learning communities, and a host of workshops to support their online pedagogy and create deeper connections with their peers and students.
