Kristine Billmyer, Dean, School of Continuing Education, and Marni Baker Stein, Senior Associate Dean for Curriculum and Instruction at SCE, will talk about the capabilities of the Pearson e-College platform, as well as the educational and technical support required to prepare the faculty to deliver their courses online.

Please join in the discussion about this model of on-line education and its possible application in other online programs that are now being considered at Columbia.
