Her keynote lecture entitled "I like to tell the story" will offer insight to engaging students online as more than 10 million students are expected to enroll in online education in the next five years. Engaging students with stories to help them access classroom concepts and to find additional inspiration can be a great way to assist students who at times struggle with the online environment. This is an exciting time to be in online education. The lecture can help educators bring an "old time" style to a new fangled platform.
