Penn College Colloquium Explores Potential of the Web to Enhance Learning

The impact of the World Wide Web on instruction, both in the classroom and in distance-learning situations, will be the topic tackled in a Pennsylvania College of Technology Professional Development Colloquia Series program scheduled for Tuesday, April 18.

“Using Activity and Discovery in Distance Education,” will be presented by Alex Kugushev, a publisher of on-line instructional materials. The program will run from 3:30 to 5 p.m. in the Mountain Laurel Room of the Thompson Professional Development Center.

Kugushev will demonstrate CyberStats, an introductory statistics course delivered exclusively over the Web. CyberStats enables students to become active explorers and discoverers of knowledge, rather than passive recipients. Kugushev will discuss the implications of the Web for classroom and distance-learning instruction and address the changing role of the instructor and how institutions are coping with those changes as time and space constraints disappear.

The free program is open to faculty, staff and anyone else who is interested. To register or to receive more information, call 320-8036 or 326-3761, ext. 7647.
