Sandermoen professor Dr. Mona Engvig delivers presentation at Association for the Advancement of Computing in Education (AACE) World Conference

Sandermoen School of Business professor Dr. Mona Engvig recently delivered a presentation on online education at the Association for the Advancement of Computing in Education’s (AACE) annual World Conference on E-Learning held in Kona, Hawaii.

The annual conferences held by the AACE serve as multi-disciplinary forums for the exchange of information on research, development, and applications of all topics related to e-Learning in the Corporate, Government, Healthcare, and Higher Education sectors.

Dr. Engvig’s presentation focused on how various pedagogical frameworks (e.g., problem-based learning, andragogy and gamification) can guide professors as they teach online. She also shared conclusions from a large study on online professors, faculty assistants and students and linked that to the frameworks and various practical applications.

In addition to her formal presentation she was able to engage a number of the attendees in discussions relative to her newly published eBook, Teaching Online: Theoretical Perspectives and Practical Advice.
