ACE Webinar Series

Enhancing Academic Productivity in Higher Education

Best Practices, Lessons Learned and More

September 05, 2012

Recent advances in technology have dramatically changed the way instruction is delivered across the globe. The American Council on Education (ACE) invites you to an informative webinar discussing state-of-the-art advances in distance learning and innovative tools and models to foster increased student learning and enhanced academic productivity.

Nexus Research and Policy Center, an independent, nonprofit, non-partisan institution, seeks to promote both access to higher education and educational success with demonstrable learning and degree completion achievement. Nexus is particularly committed to studying and supporting underserved student populations and the institutions that educated them.

The Open University is a world leader in modern distance learning and a pioneer of teaching and learning methods to enable students to realize their career and professional goals no matter where they are. With more than 250,000 students enrolled (including more than 50,000 overseas students), it is the largest academic institution in the United Kingdom and one of the largest in Europe. The Open University is also one of only three UK higher education institutions to gain accreditation in the United States by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education.
