American School to Attend Pair of Professional Development Events

If you're a regular blog reader (and why wouldn't you be?), you know that this blog does a good job promoting all the different conventions the American School attends.  The primary purpose of these conventions is to make ourselves available to those students who might be interested in taking our classes in the future.  With that in mind, you might wonder if the American School attends any conventions or events to better serve its current students.  The answer is a resounding yes!  Tomorrow there won't be a blog entry because we'll be attending a social media conference in Chicago.  Even better, next week, two of our Curriculum department employees will be attending the Midwest Moodle Moot in Goshen, Indiana.  The Midwest Moodle Moot is important because Moodle is the software that we are using to make our current print courses available in an entirely online format.  We hope to have more online courses available soon, and attending the Midwest Moodle Moot will help us do just that.  Tomorrow's event and next week's event are two of the many events we attend each year to learn how we can better serve our current students.  Coupled with the conventions we attend, they help strengthen the American School for years to come.
