2016 TxDLA Conference

10:45 AM - 11:35 AM: Breakout Sessions
Help! I Want a Live Teacher!
When students cry for help, distance learning faculty save the day. When distance learning students complain about the lack of live interaction, perhaps a team of teacher heroes could try co-instructed videoconferencing using Life Size distance learning technology. Co-instruction keeps students engaged and melts barriers of distance and skill sets.
Track: Discover Your Superhero Deep Down Inside You!
