Congratulations to the six recipients of the Distance Learning Professional Development/Travel Grants. The Online Community of Practice Steering Committee awarded these grants in December 2014, for Spring 2015.
Recipients are expected to share what they've learned, presented, or will present, within six months of the event for which they receive funding. To do this, recipients typically submit a one-page reflection paper, share their conference PowerPoint or video, or give a presentation on campus.
