Melville, NY – February 11, 2013 – Ambassador College Bookstores, an industry leader providing specialized bookstore and content solutions for higher education, has been selected by the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES) to present at its 10th Annual Conference. Ambassador’s session will explore the management, delivery and use of electronic course materials in the ever-changing world of online learning.
“Electronic course materials can dramatically enhance the learning experience – that said, it can sometimes be a challenge for schools to keep pace with rapidly evolving resources,” said Steven M. Blicht, Chief Operating Officer of Ambassador College Bookstores. “We are looking forward to sharing strategies for the effective and efficient use of online course materials with health education schools so that their students and faculty can benefit from the most relevant, engaging, and current information available. This is especially important for these schools given the ongoing advances in health care and medicine today.”
Session attendees will look at changes in how course materials are managed, delivered, accessed and utilized within a school’s learning management system (LMS). Discussion will include student collaboration tools, eTextbook adoption tools, engagement metrics and LMS integration advances that allow faculty greater flexibility to embed course content within the syllabus. “The Management and Delivery of Electronic Course Materials to Students” will take place on Thursday, February 14th at 11:30 a.m.
Ambassador is also teaming up with students and an instructor from Everest College’s Massage Therapy program to give ABHES attendees massage demonstrations in its booth. Everest College teaches students to successfully practice massage therapy in a variety of health care settings. Attendees can stop by booths #25 and #26 for a free chair massage.
