Connections: Social networking, faith, and learningThere is a growing body of research and evidence to suggest that social networking plays an important role in the learning process. Additionally, we continue to see literature on the issue of faith formation in online learning and how that impacts whole-person development. As always, we seek application and integration with best practices of online learning. These three tracks will form the basis of our dialogue and presentation at ACCESS 2014. We invite you to bring your thoughts and ideas to the collective table.
We are equally excited to announce our keynote speaker, Dr. Phil Cooke. Phil is an international writer, speaker, and film critic. As CNN journalist Paula Zahn noted, he is a working Hollywood producer with a Ph.D. in Theology. He offers unique insights into the area of media and the role of faith. Phil is an energetic speaker and knows how to captivate an audience. He recently published One big thing: Discovering what you were born to do. He's written a number of other books and is busy consulting for media and film production. For more information about Phil, be sure to visit his website, linked above. You won't want to miss this one!
