17th TCC Worldwide Online Conference April 17-19, 2012

The theme for the 2012 conference is “Emerging Technologies in Education: Trends & Issues.”

Social media, such as Twitter and Facebook, have facilitated communication, sharing, collaboration and creativity among students and faculty.

Students and faculty have converged on the Internet to share their views and utilize Web 2.0 tools for teaching and learning. However, many issues and concerns have yet to be answered fully: How do faculty, staff, students and communities produce positive learning outcomes? Can students learn through virtual worlds, educational games, augmented realities, or the use of mobile devices? What technologies continue to reshape e-learning? How do we support our colleagues?

Conference dates: April 17-19, 2012
Pre-conference: April 5, 2012
