2014 Educators Connect Welcome Reception

Please join us for a Welcome Reception on Monday, March 3, 2014, the night before the conference begins, at the Trent Lott Center for Excellence for Economic Development and Entrepreneurship from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. on the Southern Miss Hattiesburg Campus.


The reception is open for all registered Educators Connect participants and sponsors. This is a great opportunity to visit with others who are involved in teaching and learning. University administrators will be present to welcome participants and present the awards for Innovation in Teaching and Exemplary Online Course.


The Innovation in Teaching Award is designed to encourage faculty to implement new ideas in the classroom. In a community of learning, we all learn from each other-from teaching mentors and from fellow faculty who reflect on and continually seek teaching strategies that promote deeper and more engaged learning.


The Exemplary Online Course Award recognizes faculty who use online learning technology effectively by exhibiting the best practices for designing engaging online coursework.


To nominate an individual for either award, please visit the Nomination Information page.
