Dr. Richard G Baruniak - Victor E. Cameron Chair in Engineering, Rice University Professor
Campuses across the educational landscape have had to move quickly to support distance learning and and are scrambling to continue their research projects from off campus. The technology required to support these initiatives has been largely defined by what was readily available. But as institutions settle into this new reality, it makes sense to take another look at the technologies that can more robustly support virtual education and research as learners and researchers work both on and off campus. Join Grants Office and special guests from Rice University, OpenStax, and HP for a look at how machine learning and cognitive science are delivering better online learning outcomes and how HP's new ZCentral remote workstation technology is enabling learning and research from a distance. Also, Grants Office will share a valuable synopsis of grant programs that are available to fund solutions like these on your campus. If you’re looking to take a more circumspect approach to funding and deploying distance education that advances student learning and research outcomes by leveraging evidence-based technology solutions, you won’t want to miss this!
