Keynote Address at TOPkit Workshop 2018

Following is a description of and (primitive) audio recording from the closing keynote address “Two Stories and a Conversation (aka Apples & Grasshoppers)” at the 2018 Teaching Online Preparation Toolkit (TOPkit) Workshop.

The TOPkit Workshop is focused on supporting the effective Florida implementation of the open-licensed faculty development resources of The two-day 2018 TOPkit Workshop included an opening keynote address from Open SUNY’s Alexandra Pickett and a Day 01 closing keynote from UCF’s Dr. Thomas B. Cavanagh. The final, closing keynote from Kelvin Thompson was designed to provide a framework for participants to reflect upon ideas from the workshop and to identify concrete opportunities to apply these ideas in their institutional contexts. This was achieved by two framing stories and facilitating small group and whole group conversations with an explicit emphasis on application as a culminating activity. (Note: The recording below is edited to remove the discussion elements for a more listenable experience.)
