Training Faculty for Mobile Learning - Toni Fuhrman, Campus Technology

At the University of Central Florida, instructional designers offer faculty ongoing mobile technology training courses. "It's all about planning, and thinking creatively," said Luke Bennett, instructional designer at the University of Central Florida's Center for Distributed Learning. Bennett and his team support about 2,000 faculty members by conducting research and developing online and training courses. Their current training course is called "Mobile Essentials." Mobile devices can expand learning beyond the classroom walls, Bennett explained. "This can happen both outside the classroom and in a traditional classroom space. The mobile device is the medium connecting the classroom experience to the real world of the student. The content learned in the classroom is connected to the outside world." http://campustechnology.com/articles/2015/07/14/training-faculty-for-mobile-learning.aspx
