Teaching and Learning in a Net-Centric World

CIDER Research in Distance Education Workshop in Montreal

I’m using my Blog to repost an unreflective invitation to join the CIDER gang in Montreal this May. It should be interesting and you are welcome to participate (even if you are not a Canuck!)

Dear Colleagues

We are pleased to invite you to the second annual CIDER Workshop. This is a day for those interested in distance education research to share discoveries, meet colleagues and find their own place in the world of distance education research. Whether observer, practitioner, student or active researcher, your interest and passion for distance education – in its many forms, makes us want to see you in Montreal.

We think we need time together to stimulate and support our community and to address the challenges and the opportunities associated with removing barriers and creating new ways of learning. The conference is associated, as a pre-conference, with the annual conferences of the Canadian Association for Distance Education and the Association for Media and Technology in Education. The logistic details are below and the agenda and registration is at Pre-Conference Workshop Agenda. We hope to see you in Montreal in May!

Terry Anderson, Ph.D.
