The inaugural Bay to Bay Distance Learning Symposium was hosted on the USF St. Petersburg campus on February 12, 2016. The event sought to inspire discussion and exploration of the roles that Faculty, Staff, and Students play with regards to growth, change and innovation, and the future of technology-enhanced teaching and learning at USF.

Featured Faculty Speakers from the USF community included Dr. Steve Diasio, Dr. Casey Frechette, Dr. Judithanne Scourfield-McLauchlan, and Dr. Phillip Wagner. Each speaker shared strategies and personal experiences with online learning; in addition to challenging attendees to explore their part in this growing field.

The Keynote Speaker, Sir Ken Robinson, engaged the audience in the consideration of the challenges and opportunities presented when creativity and technology intersect in the online teaching and learning environment.

The event continues to inspire conversations that will lead to a more engaging experience for all individuals involved in online learning at USF.
