by Laura Morris | Aug 07, 2017

This 2-day pre-conference course will be held on February 20-21, 2018  prior to the Combined Sections Meeting in New Orleans, LA.

The summit is designed to equip individuals or small project teams to make evidence-based, educationally sound decisions in the development of online education projects. The summit will include didactic presentations, individual and group project work and discussions.  A significant portion of the summit will be devoted to individualized mentorship on attendees’ projects. Each participant/project team will draft online course proposal.

Following the summit, participants/project teams may submit their proposals for consideration for development and presentation on the ANPT Synapse Education Center.  Attendance at the summit does not guarantee acceptance of a project proposal for dissemination on the Synapse Center.
