Dr. Dennen (L) and Jiyae Bong (R)

Jiyae Bong, doctoral student in the Instructional Systems and Learning Technologies program, will receive a 2014-2015 Distance Learning Award for Excellence in Online Mentoring. This is one of several awards presented by the FSU Office of Distance Learning to recognize outstanding and innovative work and promote effective practices for online and distance learning in all disciplines.

Bong is being recognized for her work with the EME 6635 MOOCs and Open Learning course. In Spring 2014, Bong was the leading teaching assistant for Dr. Vanessa Dennen’s Open Learning in MOOCs course. MOOCs, or Massive Open Online Courses, are essentially extremely large online classes in which anyone might enroll. From March 24 – April 20, 2014, Dennen, Bong, and 16 ISLT graduate students offered a free four-week professional development course designed to help instructors, trainers, and instructional designers learn how to better use social media to support learning.

“This is a great honor for me,” said Bong, who is also an instructor for the Introduction to Education Technology prerequisite course at the College of Education. “I am very happy and deeply appreciative of the support I’ve received from Dean Driscoll, Dr. Dennen, and Dr. Betsy Becker.”

You can read more about the MOOCs and Open Learning course on pg. 18 of the 2015-2016 Torch Magazine.
