In September 2019, SHSU Online will host the Digital Education Summit 2019 (DES 19) - a two-day event that will bring together faculty and staff interested in utilizing tools, best practices, and emerging technology to improve the online teaching and learning experience. The Summit's goal is to provide tools and techniques to enrich the connection of students in an online environment.
DES 19 will be held on Thursday, September 19, from noon to 7 p.m. and Friday, September 20, from 8 a.m. to noon, at the Lowman Student Center, 1717 Avenue J, Huntsville (on the Sam Houston State University campus).

Together with Terrence Sejnowski, the Francis Crick Professor at the Salk Institute, she co-teaches Coursera – UC San Diego’s “Learning How to Learn,” one of the world’s most popular massive open online courses with over two million registered students.
