Engage, Encourage, Educate: Student Services for the 21st Century

The mission of ACCESS is to provide leadership in the field of Christian distance education. With that in mind, we seek to highlight ways in which we can apply social networking, faith formation, and online learning to those with whom we interact, be it in the classroom, the church, or the community. Those connections are ways in which we continue to expand our reach. Biola University has graciously agreed to provide us with their beautiful campus as our venue. Invite your friends to join us for this important time of networking and learning together.

Keynote speaker: Dr. Dawn Morton
Theme: Engage, Encourage, Educate: Student Services for the 21st Century

Rationale:
Personalized learning is one of the top buzzwords in education now; it suggests a host of different learning methods that are typically institution-driven. It is likely that learning will continue to be learner-driven where learners control their learning and become not just consumers of content but active creators of content, building knowledge through collaboration and connectivity via smart phone apps. Students will be in control not only of when they learn, but will demand that they contribute to their learning through discussions and collaboration, creating content while doing so. This student-driven phenomenon suggests that schools and higher education institutions will need to respond by creating learning programs that acknowledge that the learner is seeking this kind of personalized learning experience.
