The Division of Digital Learning (DDL) invites you to our Digital Learning Day event!

Here at UCF and across higher education, “digital learning” may have a different meaning based on the context. For this event, Digital Learning means empowering faculty to leverage educational technology, tools, and resources in support of UCF’s mission. This includes a particular emphasis on exploring pioneering ways to positively impact students and the quality of the learning experience in all course modalities.

To promote digital learning at UCF, Digital Learning Day (DLD) is an opportunity to:

  • Learn more about DDL’s services and tools
  • Learn from fellow peers on how they are implementing state-of-the-art techniques in their courses
  • Connect with colleagues and staff across the university
  • Celebrate the great work that is conducted every day at UCF

We look forward to being in person again for the 2024 DLD Event!

Prior to this role, Dr. Baker served as the dean of professional education for the last decade.

Dr. Baker’s award-winning work on the impact of technology on students’ learning has generated projects such as intelligent simulations and tutors, among others. Leading Dr. Baker’s list of honors are the W.M. Keck Foundation Award for Engineering Teaching Excellence and the University Professional Continuing Education Association (UPCEA) Julia M.
