Education Professor Presents at the United States Distance Learning Association Virtual National Conference
Hui Fang Huang “Angie” Su, Ed.D., Professor in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction at NSU’s Abraham S. Fischler College of Education and School of Criminal Justice presented, Using Collaborative Tools in Distance Learning, on Wednesday July 22 at the United States Distance Learning Association Virtual Conference. Dr. Susan Stephan, Associate Dean, Shepard Broad College of Law and Jamie Manburg Ed.D.,, Associate Dean, Abraham S. Fischler College of Education and School of Criminal Justice were co-presenters at the session.
Su is President of the Florida Distance Learning Association. For many years, one of her teaching strategies is mentoring students through cooperative learning and student collaboration. The work that the students accomplished in the course likely results in a publication or further research projects. The strategy encourages students to meet outside class time. Students become highly motivated to research the topics, and bounce ideas off each other and help each other with the areas of mathematics in which they might need a refresher. The result is that the students felt highly accomplished, and all work done in the classroom becomes a work in progress and can lead to classroom usage or researchable projects.
