IDPP Director of Technology Presents at IIE Seminar
IDPP Director of Technology Mr. Clyde White, Jr. presented as part of a panel discussion on online education, distance learning and Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) held by the Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES) at the Institute of International Education (IIE)’s Washington, DC office on 28 October 2013. The event was part of the Fulbright-Nehru International Education Administrators Seminar, a two-week residency hosted by IIE that invites 10 university professionals from across India to visit the U.S. to learn and observe different aspects of the American higher education system.
Mr. White was joined on the panel by a small group of experts in online education and cyberlearning from the metro-Washington, D.C. area. Mr. White’s presentation during the discussion focused on the creation of the IDPP’s accessible cyberinfrastructure and its success in providing an accessible online learning environment to persons with disabilities.
This breakfast and panel discussion was one of a series of events that IIE and CIES organized over the course of the seminar’s two-week duration. The administrators made stops in Lincoln, Nebraska; Chicago, Illinois; Baltimore, Maryland; and Washington, DC. The Fulbright Scholarship program is funded by the US Department of State, which also funds the EMPOWER Fellowship exchange program that invites disability advocates from across the world to work with leading disability advocacy organizations on issues such as inclusive education, disability advocacy and capacity building.
