National Distance Learning Week
November 7-11, 2016
Kansas State University Global Campus is celebrating National Distance Learning Week!
Sponsored by the United States Distance Learning Association (USDLA), National Distance Learning Week helps increase awareness and appreciation for distance learning and how it helps people reach their educational goals. Because of distance education at K-State, thousands of people studying from all 50 states and 41 countries have earned their K-State education — often while balancing full-time commitments with work, family and community.
K-State will be offering the following activities in recognition of National Distance Learning Week.
Share Your Vision
What is your vision for the future? Creating a vision board can be a great way to clarify and visualize your plans for the future. Vision boards serve as a visual representation and tangible reminder of your ideas, goals and plans.
Order your free K-State Vision Board kit from K-State Global Campus. Your kit comes complete with a blank vision board and four pages of stickers.
Studies show that when you share your goals and progress with others, it can help motivate you to achieve them. Share your finished boards with a brief written summary of your vision on Facebook or Twitter with #EnvisionKState before Nov. 4, and you’ll be entered for a chance to win prizes! You can also email a photo of your vision board to firstname.lastname@example.org. Winners will be announced on Facebook and Twitter during National Distance Learning Week.
