> CONFERENCE INFORMATION AND CALL FOR PAPERS

> ------------------------------------------------------------
> ------------------
> The First International Conference in Networked Lifelong
> Learning, held at
> the University of Sheffield in April 1998, explored the
> emergent field of
> networked learning.The combination of the terms "lifelong
> learning" and "networked learning" provides an opportunity
> to ask ourselves what the implications are for lifelong
> learning and higher education, and in particular what
> aspects of education and training are amenable to provision
> via the Internet and the Web? Does networked learning
> amount to a paradigm shift away from conventional distance
> learning - a shift towards the communicative process being
> more central to distance learning, and if so what are the
> implications for our practice? Are institutions of
> education and training "ready" for this shift? What new
> forms of learning and teaching do we need to encourage in
> our staff development programmes in order to support this
> shift? The emphasis at the moment is often on the
> technological fix: is the technology of the Internet and
> the Web determining practice? What models are there? What
> kinds of research and evaluation can we apply to this new
> field? What are the new emerging tools and methods that are
> being developed to research networked learning? What is the
> researcher's experience of working in this area? The
> Conference is designed to bring together managers,
> teachers, lecturers, trainers, researchers and students
> from all sectors of education and training.

> "Teaching at a Distance: A Handbook for Instructors"
> A Joint Publication of the League for Innovation in the
> Community College and Archipelago, a Division of Harcourt
> Brace & Company
> ------------------------------------------------------------
> ---------
> This 90-page soft-back is authored through the collective
> efforts of the League of Innovation in the Community
> College, http://www.leagure.org. Each chapter is written by
> practitioners at different contributing colleges.
> Chapter One, titled Fundamentals of Designing a Distance
> Learning Course, comes from Carolyn Jarmon, a Visiting
> Fellow at SUNY and addresses, among other things, the
> importance of designing courses with an eye on the needs of
> the distance learning population - a population which is
> typically older, more career-conscious, and less
> theoretical in their approach to knowledge. Chapters Two
> and Three provide faculty with a primer on the different
> types of instructional technologies, ranging from audio to
> Internet-text-based delivery systems. Chapter Four, by Mary
> Boaz of Murray State, addresses the crucial issue of how to
> get students involved in creating discussions and
> collaborative learning activities online. Chapter Five
> covers Institutional Guidance and how to best provide it
> for remote learners. Chapter Six explains options and
> procedures of Testing and Assessment at a Distance. The
> book concludes with a chapter in how Rio Salado uses their
> College Without Boundaries model to reach and serve working
> adults in Arizona. The Rio Salado piece discusses ways to
> create an integrated distance education model that
> addresses the instructional, support, administrative, and
> lifestyle needs of remote learners.  Faculty at Rio are
> especially qualified to address these issues because they
> do not maintain a central teaching campus but rather
> operate put of a dispersed collection of community
> buildings, including schools, libraries, and workplace sites.
> This excellent practitioner's guide answers all the primary
> questions that plague faculty who are new to distance
> learning. The Handbook is a steal at $15. Order from the
> League's Bookstore online at http://www.league.org or by

> SIX MONTH * FULL TIME * OPPORTUNITY AT FIPSE * Fund for the
> Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE) U.S. Dept.
> of Education, Washington, DC
> -------------------------------------------------------
> What is FIPSE? A tax-supported Federal fund to improve
> practice at colleges, universities and other organizations
> focusing on the education of postsecondary students.
> Through its grants, publications and conferences, FIPSE
> provides seed money for action-oriented innovations, and
> disseminates proven reforms. The Fund has earned a
> reputation for hospitality to new ideas, a rigorous review
> process, and the wide influence of the projects it has
> supported. Whom do we seek? Four broadly educated, dynamic
> and intelligent individuals to serve as full time "expert
> consultants" for six months (beginning January or February
> 2000), to work with two major FIPSE grant programs: the
> Comprehensive Program, which funds a broad spectrum of
> projects in such areas as curriculum reform, faculty
> development, technology, cost control, access to education,
> and the dissemination of proven ideas; and Learning Anytime
> Anywhere Partnerships (LAAP), which supports ambitious
> distance learning projects with broad regional or national
> impact. The purpose of these consultancies is to bring the
> perspective of practitioners to the grand-making process,
> and to supplement the expertise of FIPSE's current program
> officers. Successful candidates will have an advanced
> degree and experience in postsecondary teaching,
> administration, or reform; a broad knowledge of issues in
> higher education; and excellent written and oral
> communication skills.  Interest in, and experience and
> comfort with educational technology is especially valued.
> We welcome applications from junior, senior or recently
> retired academic professionals. Because FIPSE values and
> encourages diversity among both grantees and staff, members
> of under-represented groups are strongly encouraged to
> apply. Why should you be interested? These positions
> provide an excellent opportunity for those committed to
> educational innovation to learn what's happening elsewhere,
> to influence the progress of reform, and to learn to be
> more effective grant applicants for the future. During the
> period of service, FIPSE will occupy beautiful new offices
> on K Street NW in Washington, DC. Compensation levels are
> comparable with academic salaries. Consideration of
> applications will begin immediately; selection of
> consultants is expected to be complete before
> Thanksgiving.  Interested applicants should phone without
> delay, and send a letter of interest and current resume to:
